Well written. Beautiful in fact. The white on black was a bit difficult for me to see, but my eyes aren't so great anymore. I really liked the poem and the energy and feeling that went into it. Thanks and I would recommend this. Theresa.

This is a beautiful poem. Love the illustration you chose. :)

I like these stanzas:
grasping for every last breath
before evening lets space
distance us again

from warmth of receding lights song
come from the suns (sun's) sinking
thinking music gone

seeing is believing
horizon stealing
breathtaking

:)

This is breathtaking Mr. Michael. What a shame we have to see to believe, when there is much to experience, if we just trust. The knee bowed, hostage to the beautiful....lovely. Blessings....

Hi Reconciled,

You have written a very nice poem again. It was interesting to read. I enjoyed it very much! For some reason I haven't been able to write anything. What's wrong? I have no idea.

Bittersweet tie the poet whom hath lost so...
For only through this words can we ever so.
I was inspired with this and decided to write about my loss to Lara's music.
It will be up in about an hour if you want some more chocolate...

Thank you for sharing the "breathtaking," animated skies and your verbal descriptions. I admired your using alliteration to intensify the emotion, along with the "one knee" that "can't stand". Cheers- Joan

Where you say, 'it can't stand' it could be self to stand as definitive for god's god, although it may sound like as it can't stand within the context like its so nice i can't stand it.

    Hey....bigsmile-
    stop that...you own your own worth in words. we all do. every soul knows its song by heart...whats hard is letting it come out. its risky....-smile-. I know who your thinking owns most of this...and I suppose shes in here...me. and always will be a part. maybe Linda all we ever really own is what we hold most high...Holy. in regards to her, what I regret the most is her first encounter with God represented through me, was sacrilege. I should have been more careful for her soul. you have loved me special, I know. I love you too. Michael.

    I have always understood she would always be a part of you...much like Bobby with me...the things I hold dear with him didn't die with him...they stay in my heart...always...and believe me when I say...a woman's heart is the most delicate thing there is...to be loved and respected...handled with kid gloves...or it will break...I have loved you true...I don't know any other way...and you will always be special to me...as well as Emmy...I love you both...Linda

"horizon stealing breathtaking"...this poem encompasses all that I cherish from this creative style of writing. Each word here paints and illuminates the sun rising... there are so many beautiful similes such as "one knee finds this morning bowed so hostage it can't stand" is my favorite, though honestly the entire poem is publish-worthy. May you write many more so others can enjoy your talent!!!!

Michael, It has been a long time since I reviewed your work, but I had to take a look at this poem. You used such great and beautiful wording and the imagery was really awesome. Great job my friend. Teri
