The sky was made for dreaming
naturally he thought of her
the wind danced playfully
across water serene
an ode to her laughter
in each ripple
lapping gently against
the shores of his heart
here beneath heavens blanket
so near yet so far
tucked in the hollows
of his anguish
the broken horizon
begs the question
is there grace
in your regret?
I wrote this while admiring :iconthefulkrum:s beautiful photo, who has allowed me to use it here. Thank you so much for your incredibly kind generosity! :hug:

That is so nice of you, thank you. I wrote the poem about the photo, or more accurately, what it made me feel. :iconthefulkrum: asked me to write something for one of his photos and this one just caught my imagination. It was an honor to do it. :heart:

Thank you, hun. I was a little worried about those, but have got good reviews about them so far. Oddly though, even if the reviews had been bad about them I wouldn't have changed a thing. They fit, for me at least.

Thank you very much, Pam :)

All too often my daydreams lead to something like this poem. My mind travels from the beauty of the moment into memories, then into feelings. Sometimes good, sometimes not...

Yeah, his photo is great, even more impressive in full view. I love those shades of blue. It was easy to imagine sitting on the bank and just soaking up the scene. Thank you for adding this to your collection, I really appreciate it. :hug:

Poetry is a pure reflection of our thoughts.

I understand that too. At those times I have poetry I'd rather not share with anyone. Makes me feel better just writing it out.

Wishing you uplifting thoughts for your day! :sun:
