NOT "JUST ANOTHER FACE"


 That face I cannot

Ever forget.

figured lace



Between me and you.

Most times I saw through

Sometimes only sought...



It was THOSE clouds

Formed countenances

Never caught.



Images of you I saw tonight

Your eyes...glances...

Smiled a lot. You



Showered me with light

From way above
I felt your love

And singing a tune
Gazed at a moon
So bright tonight--

Because on it's sweet face
Those clouds of lace
Had moved away

And left you for me
In my heart--alone--to see
What I ought never forget

Beautiful lace
Beautiful face
Of you...

  5. Imagine that! Steve outside at night staring at the moon. Sweet words. I'm seeing a lovely woman with a veil although that may not have been the lace you meant?

    Sir, love is ALWAYS "kinda purty" and much more! IMO.

    MONKEY MAN:
    Four most important words in English: "You may be right!" (Also they are the four least-used--grin!)

    TESS KINCAID:
    From you Dear Lady, that rings and sings in my heart. That is whence the word-thoughts were born.

    MINING FOR DIAMONDS:
    Kimberly, as busy as you are--thank you SO much. NO BOOK. But I appreciate that you believe they are worthy! And as for art, I have begun to be lifted by art works. The artist has something important to say, to give, as the symphony composer, or the orchestra playing the notes. Know what I mean?

    May blessings shower upon you and your huge bundle of life. PEACE!

  7. MARGG:
    Oooh! You are TOO kind to me, girl! But THANKS....

    MAGPIE:
    Yesss, I WAS staring at the moon, while riding my scooter toward home last night. And those clouds formed a veiled face between the moon and me. They moved hardly at all, shaping the scene to form the contour of a familiar and beautiful face. And all the way home the poem formed itself--yes--as I gazed...moonstruck, you might say.

    NOTE: Moments like these do NOT present themselves frequently to me. But there IS a muse hanging around in my head almost constantly. Nuff said-grin!

  10. I guess your muse was struck
    With the moon and clouds wasn't luck
    As here at your place
    You really go through the lace
    Setting a nice pace
    To show a beautiful face
    Like how you plant the seed
    A very nice read

    Love the tender feel of your comment. Is not love--even when 'tough'--an attribute of tenderness? Thanks.

    Elise, your words light up my evening. Thanks!

    SIGNED...BKM:
    Barbara, sometimes I just feel 'romantic'. Or should that read: "Sometimes--but rarely--do I not feel romantic"???--grin! But that moon will do it every time!

    PEACE!
