Written with air ... (dolor)

Written with air ... (dolor)

A Poem by Richard

Free Verse

Written with air …

There may come a time
when thoughts dissipate,
like frost that lingered
as lace on green blades;
and, like early dew,
you are no longer here,
inside my mind, my soul ...
my heart unthawed
by life's sun 
bowing  out,

in abjured encore.


Where have our moments gone,
those that called us out to dance,
to warmly embrace it all,
to revel in laughter's afterglow,
shining with tears of forgiveness;
and, what of all the gold we shared,
our hours spent
in ethereal lovemaking?


I knew you - oh so well ...
the child inside,
the woman of you, too,
and all that life called us to be,
together ~
in the spark of eternal
forevermore.


Our days and nights,
spent wrapped in splendor,
thrust together,
entwined like vines
with insatiable fingers ...
swimming your pools
of endless depth,
those verdant portals
into your soul.


It is as though ...
a mystical wand passed over us,
and like the sigh
of a baby's first breath ...
here, in soft feathered touch,

... shhh!


Gone now,

forevermore ...
as if we, You and I,
were merely ~
Written with air.

Not my best work, I know, but I needed to say something that felt real,
exactly as it crossed my heart ... I know you understand.
I didn't even stop to check for spelling ...

so very much unlike me ... LOL!
Any help is welcomed.

A beautiful post, full of sincere emotions that poets can express so readily.. (whether edited or not.) Your sincerity is more than apparent by some wonderful said phrases, 'Where have our moments gone, ~ those that called us out to dance, ~ to warmly embrace it all, ~ to revel in laughter's afterglow,..:

For me, this is an excellent work precisely because it feels real and comes from the heart. No need to apologize for that!

Thank you, Roland, for sharing your thoughts, feelings, and sentiments of this simple little piece, .. read more
In our younger days, when we danced and drank and laughed, we just cant embrace any of it as
memory, not when it is so fresh in our doing of it. Sometimes my mother, after her Prilosec and
Gaviscon kicks in, will recall how her and my father would dance to the big band sounds of
Count Basie and Billie Eckstein. Then she takes her seat in front of the television to watch
"Wheel of Fortune". It's as if her memory of those events were written with air and written on air,
since air is metaphor for the medium that memory rides along. (excellent)

But this is a love poem Richard, not just a poem of intense recollection. And being a love poem
it is both universal and timeless; " as though a mystical wand passed over us" and made us speak
again, of what had happened. Beautifully written...dana

a good poem leaves heart blood on the page, as this, and lays a blessing on us, as this...what else do we really have to share than what we love and what loves us, now or then...a sweet sadness here...thank you

This is how I usually write Richard. I just start putting my feelings into words and let the poetry fall like a snow flake condensing from atmosphere within my being in the moment.
Personally, I found the poetry highly intuitive and universally expressive.
I think many readers will respond well to this very lovely write. Thank you for sharing.

You could be right! ; )
I guess it is your natural talent shining through. I found the spelling and punctuation to be fine. And even thou you claim it is not your best. Your worst is generally far above the maddening crowd of writers.

This was a lovely piece on love and the one you hold close. Well done.
