of loved ones lost...

Post by scarab280 » Fri Aug 07, 2020 1:27 pm

this poets soul
is sowing seeds
for loved ones lost
for unseen deeds
in the quiet times
dappled with sighs
dusted in pale light
are pre dawn skies
Mr Tui sings
he spreads wide
his wings
in upward flight
to the Puriri tree
I think of you
I dream you are free
toes mulled
in a turning tide
undertow pulled
the tears we cried
for you
I glimpse your eyes
crystalline blue
so briefly seen
caught in sea foam
sands washed
renewed pristine
I let go like the sun
& long for home

J.C.

Hey sweetie, I'm ok thanks. It is a very rainy stormy day here, my favourite kind of weather, at least when inside! Set for next 6 days of thunderstorms and rain...

I'm glad you like the poem, I wrote it for my Mum mostly. Yes, I originally had "I pray you are free' but it didn't sit well with me so I switched it out to I dream....thank you. I hope you're doing ok too?

We are just having a slight resurgence in Covid19, such a shame after 102 days of zero community transmission, but that's going to happen, if we ipenpur borders. Even just to returning citizens and residents... We were down to 0 cases, before that. Now they have to go into quarantine (in 5 star hotels all paid with all services available, room service, full menu access pool etc) for 14 days then if tested positive, transfer to a proper facility... Anyway, it means we in Auckland, are back in lockdown ugh, the rest of NZ at level 2 for now, this new cluster us in AK, and is shaping up to be the biggest cluster we have had since the start...sigh....

P.S. I heard from justadoc the other day. He must of liked this one too, coz he did a rewrite, I'll find it ...hold on...

Here we go, this is docs rewrite

on poet sown souls
seeds sew love's lost ones
on quiet times play one's deeds
dappling twilight sighs tonight
dusted in pall's pale light
near to me drawn pre dawn skies
in rainbows Mr Tui sings
song spreading wide his wings
upward flights to the Puriri tree
I think of you
dreaming you
free near to me
toes mulled in a turning tide
undertowing tears in half laughs we cried

for you
I glimpse your eyes
crystalline azure lapis blue
so seen briefly sewn
woven seas as billows foam
tidal sands washed pristine
topographies in topaz hues
I let go, clouds to the sun
so as perchance to dream
eyes azure lapis blue
sewing love in the quiet time
in love's lost deeds I find
I let go, clouds part the sun
I long for home
I hurry home
to you
perchance I dream

I miss him, he seemed a little better, in his last communication, although he is still eager to reconnect with Dr.Harris, I can't find him, although I'll keep trying, they were long term friends in rhyme, so it'd be nice to find him...
