willyweed

still you remain

 

 

 

 

Voices call out
From dreams in the night

Figures out of reach
Faces out of sight

Mist from a memory
Beyond the shadows fall

Things I can remember?
But somehow can’t recall

They slip through my fingers
Just Like the summer rain

And although you’re not with me
Still you remain

                    willyweed, your talent is through the roof. I love this poem dude. "Mist from a memory, beyond the shadows fall" captured my imagination about who I think you are. that is an achievement within any standard of art form. to be noticed of your own work is I think what we may all aim for. you did it well my friend.

                    • willyweed

                      Thank You so much Kevin that is a nice thing to say , and like lovelydarkanddeep said here I do try to strike a fire in the heart of the reader and I do wish to be a true poet, but the real master is the poetry I am just a vessel. and I am happy to reach into your imagination for that is key to poetry. Again that you my friend! peace ww

                            Another cracker Willy (do you use the word cracker to denote a good un in the States?)

                            • willyweed

                              no sir that word is reserved for a white person? as denoted by a black person, but I take it from the source so Thank You Michael! or a crisp chip to put cheese on ? lol ww

                                          This one's a gem. I've read it twice. "Things I can remember? But somehow can't recall." is a great couple of lines. Seems like I've been there, not because of age, but experience. When remembrances pop into your head for no reason whatever. Loved all the couplets, the whole entity of the poem, and of course the message, Love clings with the hands of time. - Phil A.

                                          • willyweed

                                            yes Phil I agree the mind is a beautiful but sometimes mysterious thing to behold, I almost didn't post this one? sometimes I fear the reader may not get it....understand me? Glad I did now! ww

                                            Really like the atmosphere you create in this poem WW. Very haunting, a real mood piece that speaks to us all. Very well written.
