Ideas long and short

Departure to possibility

The space left in the panes,
where her shadow has gone

now filled with the lemon light
of the sun

full is the hallway, with rays

There must be something in that drench-light
that wants us to step in to her lustre

Then out to here, the retreating quiet
of a room

With wedding veil windows onto beyond
the emerald spray of trees

the dome of that hill, and verdant,
quiet in the dew of morning, I see:

Just caught between my glances.
two old crows circling skyward-

Into the impossible blue.


I liked this one and thought it a great write,
good to have you back young one,
Take care, Yours, Ian..

Give critique to help keep Neopoet great.
Unconditional love to you all.
"Learn to love yourself first"
Yours as always, Ian.T, Sparrow, and Yenti

Time has given us the luxury of thought, and, I've had a bit more time on my hands than I'm used to. So I'm looking forward to tinkering. May expand on this a little. Thanks for words of encouragement, always good to hear.



PS - the thought had occurred to me regarding the Anglesea poem, it was going to have a sort of "postcard narrative" to a long lost "Father", but it's still a work in progress.
