dusk arising




how gentle
she poured
her elixir of love
upon those scars
neath which
my demons slumbered

and now
a bird of hope
trills clear and fresh
as each new day
casts light of invitation
to tread a new path

    I also love the quote that you have attached to this poem

    • dusk arising

      Thank you little dove. Yes that little verse in the picture is quite beautiful.

      May each new path be filled with wonder and joy (and jazz).

      • dusk arising

        Thank you sir! This is a pure fantasy write. I have yet to meet such an elixir bearing beauty. But i shall be writing about my vision of her soon.

        And may that bird keep trilling. It might even speak, like parrots do?! What will it say?

                Wow! I think a lot of us have those scars and demons. Maybe the right person does have a way to soothe and lay them to rest. I live in hope.
                It's a lovely feeling to know one's heartfelt words can reach out and touch a reader. Thank you for your lovely comment.

                ... Speechless! Well not really but I'd rather just stay with your words and quote.
                Thank you very much
