For Niamh, A Stranger

you, irish girl, i will never see you again
but of course i remembered you then.
brown hair and light eyes,
you should know that i never remember
the color of people’s eyes.
you are tall and beautiful and spelled my sister’s name
and swayed my entire body with that breathtaking voice
an enchantress, i was bound,
my heart fluttered.
you shouldn’t have had to change your name
because they couldn’t say it
because they don’t know that it means “bright.”

in my mind i begged you to keep talking
but this mountain is far from your home
and it was the end of the day.
but every time i punch in, and every time i clock out
of course.
i will remember you.

Last few words: 
she really was beautiful
Editing stage: 


Not just the face....
Ive been about long enough to see people that roughly .closely
look like others....but a large distinction..
ex.....I wandered lonely as a cloud..was a great poem can re-emote this
I wandred lonely as a clod...etc...

everyone remembers the one meeting
half away
gasing up..
putting in the money in the subway
box...and you see
or you talk
for a moment
hear a song...
and you are like...


Is it the beauties to always conquer our worlds
and give us lines...No
I live with two..and more in the past
lucky me!

more like a roady of life..

but in quick passing....there are some
whom are beautiful
undeniably so....mind lines

they...the fast thinkers know their prow
their point opening lines
ive met them...
and I myself have been groomed

they are beautiful

so of course any poem in Ode to muses
I enjoy greatly!!!!
I can relate too!

any writer writing honestly to what they
find inspires them I like
and comment on
because...sometimes we just
enjoy what we find along the way
I know I do
I make no bones about where my
writing comes from..
I do not live in a vacume

nor should any man beast or woman
that can craft works!!


be creatively driven!!!!!!!!!!

Thank you!
