My Lady Was a Poem

My Lady Was a Poem

 

My lady was a poem

just waiting to happen

A flurry

of words balanced …

on the

wings of explorers

Reflecting

the joy on the face

of new parents

The pride of a father

and the

love of a mother

With all but a trace

of the smile

she was known for

And let’s

not forget the way

that she moved

which once

made her famous

Nor the

lavender shawl

that she

wore off her shoulders

My lady

was a poem

just waiting to happen

On the lips of her lovers

and in the

prayers of disciples

She was

a flurry of words

unhurried, yet spoken

At home

in cathedrals, bordello

or ghetto

Now gone tho I hear her

but only

in whispers and echo’s

I sense her

in shadows and embers

and mist

on the hill though

All the places we loved

I try to

scribble in note pads

My lady

was surely a poem

just waiting to happen

yet barely

captured in moments now gone …

    Once a minion of written memory and although now aged this lady will live as a whisperer of treasured nostalgia to one who saw what her essence reflected - - another peep into your masterful use of words Nev.that compel every reader to look deeper and perceive extra meanings - - - surely the mark of an exceptional story teller..........x

      Your muse is showing.

      What wonderful things love does to us ..... to leave us with reminiscences which mature into the finest emotions of love recalled. Coloured maybe with a touch more romance from these years of distance but non the less our finest hours shared with the most memorable beings.

      A beautiful reminiscence from your mind today Neville.

                'My lady
                was a poem
                just waiting to happen

                and in the
                prayers of disciples

                well I have long since proclaimed my biased opinions of your write's, my oh so talented Poet: I'm a fan, but when you deliver such write's of simplistic mastery, who can blame me,
                Brilliant!

                  A warm embrace of love through life. Nicely woven sentiments of memory and immediacy bringing the tender intimacy you shared to great realisation. Thanks for sharing Neville.
