sumtimes i catch his sighs
right off the edges of thunderstorms
i catch his sighs really good at night
sumtimes i catch his sighs as early as dawn's dew
and i rush them on in sumtimes i share with you...his sighs as early as morning lights
as gently as dawn's dew sumtimes i share them
sumtimes i share them with you

(your words thank you)

cool breezes crisp in shadowlands so dreamy

i sit on sand


he say he is coming

the middle east huh?

i think he is already here, crying

i think i catch his sighs off the edges of thunder storms

from moth (fireflies in the Delta)

where i sit in the bayou

i thought it was Africa, but they tell me the middle east

he say he is coming

i listen for his word carried by the trees

where they say he is coming

i think he already here tho, crying

if you read his words, really read them

then you know love and truth and law

he is a compassionate soul~~~

and i can feel his sighs achoing off the chest of thundersrtorms

quievering like a grieving father or son watching a grieving father

i sit on sand


i thought it was Africa but they say the middle east

he is coming

i think he already here, crying

The soul left again on the paper, little I can say, just striking tone, mind in hold once more, Walt

Beautiful sentiments that stir the soul, Mitzi. Thank you. Love and best wishes to you,

Reviewed by Kate Burnside 6/3/2009
Totally brilliant, Mitzi. Love the uniqueness of this expression and the quality of relationship it espouses with faith, hope and confidence. Also the intuited recognition of his "already" presence. You share his heart and mind. Lovely, real write that is from the soul. TY. "Faith is a bird that feels the light... and sings before the day is bright". You sing his on-going lament. xx

They are wrong. He is not coming, and the sands run red with our blood because we are fools to war over him.

In deep write, girl. You the best.

a very beautiful poem from the mind's innermost. spectacular is the right word. this is a poem that keeps some of its secrets, like a soul who knows too much

Mitzi, I have sooo missed your spectacular writes that spring from deep within your heart and soul and boom out across cyber space to make us all sit up and much between the lines here...

Where have you been, I've missed you! Undone by the beauty, the power of your pen - you know I'd love,

" ... sometimes i catch his sighs
right off the edges of thunderstorms ...." <-- what an opening!!

Well done.

(((HUGS))) and love, Karla.
