New Reflection
By La Belle Rouge

so far away, little children play
at games they hope to win
this life has been a futile game
I will not play again

children’s laughter floats above
dark sorrow in my soul
and memories of former love
cannot warm away the cold

if I could be a child again
and somehow repeat the game
would I then be devastated when
I played the damn thing the same

oh no… it’s best to drift away
to destinations not traveled yet
and listen to the children play
while trying to forget

to harbor on an unknown shore
where at last I can finally be
not heavy hearted anymore
but a new reflection of “Me”

if you remember me
let it with fondness be
for one unafraid to play
and if you follow soon
if in December or June
I’ll be waiting for that day

This really expresses the futility of the speaker and their view that life is a game to be won... they are giving in, moving on. Good job.

Great piece of work with a nice musical relaxing background.
Keep it up, Gerry
Reviewed by Kate Burnside 6/14/2010
Children's voices and laughter often cause me to feel detached from my own mind and body in a very strange way... Yes, they can take us back and very definitely project us forward, too, as we travel the length of their carefree sounds to places we either remember happily or yet still long for. A wonderful capture, Belle, and you have articulated something I, too, would have loved to be able to express and yet would never have thought to do so but for this. Haunting and yet longing in equal measure. An innocence, vitality and hope in the on-going ever-present. As always, careful and lovely work. xx

a good memory is not always a blessing -- however if we utilize it as we should, it can be our greatest asset -- truth does not always reside within the self assessing mirror -- another great Belle work to savor -- may peace and love be always with you my dear friend --Jon Michael

This is a most beautiful poem-poignant, lovely!
Reviewed by J'nia Fowler 6/12/2010
Memories thrust upon me, none of my making, seem to stick to the corners of my mind, but those precious ones I've instigated myself push the others to the shadows most of the time. Well done. J'nia

Very nicely written.
Reviewed by John Flanagan 6/11/2010
...mirror, mirror...and Belle's spirit flows and glows in a rather dark, reflective state. At times I wish, as many do, my memory wasn't as good as it is.
You've moved me with this.

Reviewed by Felix Perry 6/11/2010
Very beautiful and so reflective, I think sometimes we all wish that we could go back in time, maybe not to relive our lives over but just to feel the thrill again...
Reviewed by Sage Sweetwater 6/11/2010
Crystal clear visions of where you've been and where you're going, Belle...there's a sadness I detect...what would have been, what should have been...our losses are our treasures as we grow older and maturity wizens New Reflection...Be well.

This is a full-blown rose of a poem!!!!

Belle, this is such a wonderful write...simply by the words, it shows the depth of your heart.

Reviewed by Regis Auffray 6/11/2010

I can relate to and respect the theme that you have explored within your verses here, Belle. Thank you. Love and best wishes to you,

I'm enthralled, not only by the words but by the shaping. Your use of a treble rhyme in the last verse gives your vase a firm base and the different line lengths give it lovely curves to its lip. Bravo!
Reviewed by Donna Chandler 6/11/2010
Beautiful and haunting ......... again with the perfect music and picture. Truly lovely, yet sad words.

Reviewed by TONY NERONE 6/11/2010
My goodness LaBelle please do not prophesy. Although I would be happy waiting for you if I was the lucky one. Why don't we just pray to ourselves at the same time. You will be okay.
