Lake Avalon Dawn



In my mind, by my side breathing comforting
rhythms of real life... heart~enhanced
while I strolled these trails by wetlands
mirrored together with a fair weather sky that danced
I'd find and tucked in mind a new born page...those
life~giving memoirs and sage rhyme
I opened them every sunny or rainy day
in or out of my need to think on his treasures sublime...

For within wispy words of healing, tenderly sown,
tinged with his own salty residue edges...
(...for he'd never removed empathy's shoes)
he kept true to the bond of forever pledges.
What can I say to a constant of caring reaching
inside his seasoned pockets of hope?
Then when impelled, filled a journey of ink and quill
that dipped into life as he wrote...

And when waves swelled, mesmerized, I spelled chords
'pon love songs that sang a dream deep
He dropped anchor and I, my net,
guarded by angels in harbours of hearts
and souls to safely keep ...
or on a sandy shore where I'd spied
the polished glass bottle beside an embedded trumpet shell
I raised it up, listened in and a lullaby of his words
sang to my spirit near breezin' shore winds

.............................................................................................where wishes and so many dreams did dwell...











Written for Poody's Challenge
Her phrase,
'journey of ink and quill'
