Memorize

I trace your smile…

my attempt to memorize

the contours of your face

slowing the haste

of time

so I can rewind

this moment

in my mind

with you

Whispering Rain

You lay,

listening to the quiet whisper

of melancholic rain

stirring your soul

at a loss for words.

Daily Prompt Response : Whisper


My Home In the Stars

please click on original 🙂 Thank you

forgottenmeadows

I will carry my home with me,

in the stars I see every night…

 

For they hold the stories,

my grandma told me,

the walks on the beach,

with the family,

and the moment,

when my heart,

first took flight.

 

I will carry my home with me,

in the stars I see every night…

 

For when I lose sight,

of where I am,

they comfort me,

like they comforted my ancestors,

eons before I was born,

guiding them with light.

 

I will carry my home with me,

in the stars I see every night…

 

For their infinite beauty,

keeps me grounded,

no matter how high I fly,

reminding me who I am,

and where I come from,

as I sail across the sky.

 

I will carry my home with me,

in the stars I see every night.

Borrowed Reflection

And now you stand,

in front of your borrowed reflection,

competing with yourself,

again.

 

This is an old piece but I thought it would be perfect for today’s daily prompt.

Linger

I like to linger in the quiet silence,

of un-rushed conversations,

watching night fall,

as the sun sets,

basking in the smiles of love,

with you.

What I believe to be false:

I do not believe in losing hope, ever.

I do not believe that people cannot change. They may not change completely and their core may be the same, but circumstances change and so do people.

I do not believe that there is, or ever will be, a limit to imagination.

DP: Legacy

When my footprints vanish from this land,

and my voice becomes a distant echo,

when I have paid all my debts to the day

and you have to let me go…

I hope stepping on morning dew brings a smile to your face,

I hope you never play, just to win the race,

I hope you rise, after each fall,

I hope you love, with your all,

and I hope you never lose hope…

I will visit you in this hope of your heart,

where my legacy will live forevermore.
