Karmic Love

I canít dance
with stars-not anymore

Theyíve made me sad
shining so very bright
inside I feel so dull

I canít paint love
on this canvas of blood

The milky way is flowing
like tears run from my eyes
sparkling in the starry night

We lie together so heavenly
wishing to believe in karma

The colors of my palette
were painted in my heart
It beat for joy and sorrow

Your heart was a slip of bliss
like the quarter moon in mist
I fear sweet youth has fled

Weíre young for a moment
then time ages us boldly

I canít dance
the light fandango
nor fake romance

Itís gentle in my memory
but now unloved I cry futilely
I move silent

dreaming love is karma

I read this yesterday but didn't make it back here to comment.
It is very touching!

P.S. I looked into some of the things you were asking
me about and I will be sending you some information tonight.:)

So bittersweet with some wonderful and memorable lines, Dale; better to have loved and lost than never to have loved at all - especially if it produces such a fertile and fruitful soul. Like fine wine, love can age with us so that when we are surprised by a "fresh one" it can be even more full-bodied, perhaps, than the first! Sorry, just the way my mind is working at the moment...!! Dreaming love is karma... but karma whether real or dreamt can be full of love - even walking down the street! Soulful and real. Love this, thank you. Kate xx

Karmic Love... and yes, unfulfilled. I love the expressions here, Dale. It puts you in that dream state while reading it, one that so many of us know of.... thank you for sharing....

In Spirit,

There are two types of kharma: good and bad. this has a sense of longing that has not been fulfilled.

Weíre young for a moment
then time ages us boldly

this is like an anchor to a poem that skillfully conveys the desire to dance free and the illusion that we can do no more because of the calendar or the clock. really nice write. Dawn

wow, how sad but beautiful
Reviewed by E T Waldron 5/17/2005
A wistful poem Dale of vanishing moments, but hope still
comes with the knowing of Karma...Our hearts can always
soar if we remember to dream...
