In honor of the first 15 winners of the Authors Den Poetry contest. And those of who enter, still waiting to be recognized--"Honor those who have gone before"
it is dawn,
and tami dreams,
floria is in her garden
of memoirs of loved ones
gone before her. . .
hearts quest for the best
of both worlds where eileen
finds her ace who was
born for a reason. . .
absentia truly never
ceases to challenge
creative spirits of regis,
yet never should we unravel
thethread of sorrow that
enters the halls of love
where amor abides,
stroking the mind
as gentle as the turtledove. . .
and although we may feel
alone, as if standing on
crippled legs, let the
baoding chimes of la belle
warm you in places you
never knew you had. . .
for when you do,
the reindeer marks the path
for you to double your way back
you find regis in
urban graffiti as he
see if you can
the sounds of thought in
the nucleus of fading light
catch jeff and jay off-guard,
and although janet may experience
a premise of disarray, emilie has
no reason to feel shamed,
'cause we've all been there
searching like an ace
for poetic muse,
yet poets continue to
seek the call of the warrior,
like dani, gathering courage,
and caging dread
