I really like all of the poems here.
They seem so natural and the images are great.
Eyes of the Beholder (Poetry) - 10/8/2013 8:24:00 AM
Beautiful write, Leysa The truth is in this expression of what lives in the heart and the eyes of the beholder.
Eyes of the Beholder (Poetry) - 10/3/2013 7:43:07 AM
So true and so wonderful, along with the attraction of opposites, making sure that the gene pool is strong and survives. Sorry to wax scientific, but the genetics, including that warm feeling you feel when someone says that you are “beautiful” (in their eyes) is all miraculously designed by mother nature to make sure that each generation is more beautiful than the last. That is, if we don't mess it up! ;-)
Eyes of the Beholder (Poetry) - 10/3/2013 2:09:08 AM
a great tribute to you both

When a Moon Pie doesn't work, everything else is up for grabs. I think I've found a new friend.
Corn Nuts and a Moon Pie (Poetry) - 9/28/2011 6:04:56 AM
My husband, dear, sweet man, brings me gifts often. My favorites are the small ones that speak of how he listens to me, pays attention ... like a mention on Facebook of how much I like Corn Nuts and Moon Pies. I love that he cares about me in such sweet, kind ways! I am blessed! Thanks for reading!
Corn Nuts and a Moon Pie (Poetry) - 9/27/2011 4:52:46 PM
You really captured something here, for it is not always about the grand gestures we make to the people we care about but the little things that we or they do that make us love themt he most.

Nicly done and so glad to see you back on the posting list Leysa, we missed you.
Dancing in Wal-Mart (Poetry) - 3/24/2010 2:53:13 PM
Wow did this bring back memories. In the first months of dating my lady and I were in Kohl's when we heard over the sound system, "Can You Feel The Love Tonight," I made us drop everything and start dancing- I sang it to her...
Got to get back there.
I agree- the real thing.
Thanks for the glorious reminder.
Dancing in Wal-Mart (Poetry) - 3/24/2010 11:28:39 AM
Thank you for bringing a smile into my heart. What a wonderful way to dance.

Let It Rain (Poetry) - 1/7/2009 8:01:44 AM
It is raining since last night into today Jan 7 09 and I don't mind it. Have no boyfriend to share it with, but looking out the window and remembering my Tom and how he hated to go outside when it was raining. I used to laugh at him for that. Now I miss him to laugh at.
Monday's Rain (Poetry) - 1/7/2009 8:00:19 AM
I always loved te rain even as a teenager. Used to say it was weather for the ducks when I had to go to work in the rain after I got out of school days. Rain refreshes and you used many words of comfort the rain can bring to us. Even rainy Mondays I can accept. Thanks
There Was Blue (Poetry) - 1/7/2009 7:58:46 AM
The colors of heaven must be wonderful I know my Tom is experienceing them now. Colors meant a lot to him. Most men like blue, mine is yellow, but I like this message, the sea is blue, and the many flowers of blue are treasures to be adopted for us too. Your descriptive write about the many things on earth here are indescribably delicious to read and ponder over.
Awakening Love (Poetry) - 12/12/2008 6:34:16 PM
Very lovely and compelling sentiments, Leysa. Thank you for sharing them via your verses here. Love and best wishes,

I like this one Leysa, and good to see you back on the board. I always wondered why there were so many worms around after a heavy rain...is it because their hole floods and they float to surface,hmnnn I wonder.

Gorgeous, Leysa, your tempo(s) beat into my heart with wisdom and understanding, however unwanted, yet, still savored...
Healing Hearts (Poetry) - 6/5/2008 6:45:21 PM
/Such a warm and wonderful write that gives hope to all who are heart sick out here in the cold and trying to believe that someday love will blossom again. It is a cold world in the absence of love. Well done Leysa...
Carson (Poetry) - 4/2/2008 5:03:04 PM
This is a sweet write Leysa and so true as no matter how down I am, or how sick, or angry with the world when I hear my granddaughters voice on the phone with her little giggles or she comes for visit with her mom...the sun always breaks through the clouds. Good to see you up on the board kiddo...missed ya.
Carson (Poetry) - 4/2/2008 4:02:37 PM

Great write...We should all leave our tails (excess Baggage)behind us and write new tales based on life's experiences...justa s you have here. Well done and clever write.
Tale of a Tail (Poetry) - 11/14/2007 4:42:57 PM
Ah Leysa, good to see you posting again and with such a fresh outlook. Wisdom of a divorcee bringing back memories of what I too once went through and weathered even though at times I never thought I would.
Tale of a Tail (Poetry) - 11/14/2007 1:24:39 PM
Er . . . uh . . . let me say . . . and furthermore . . . take a stand for . . . ain't that the truth . . . Amen . . . LOL . . . Just kidding around here . . . You put some heavy-duty truth into this poem of error and misplaced tail/tale . . . Gotta love it . . .
Tale of a Tail (Poetry) - 11/14/2007 1:15:21 PM
Cute poem--the title caught my eye first--love the title. I make those Freudian slips sometimes--I think many do.
Tale of a Tail (Poetry) - 11/14/2007 12:43:46 PM
Cleverly concocted and sprinkled with wise counsel; thank you, Leysa. Love and best wishes to you,

This is beautiful Leysa!!
Dwelling (Poetry) - 8/23/2007 5:37:06 AM
I love the reality of your writing. You take a sad and hopeless part of life and give it hope. Blessings Always, Paul.
Dwelling (Poetry) - 8/22/2007 9:05:14 PM
Such a wonderful, heartfelt write, but yet so meloncholy.....
Dwelling (Poetry) - 8/22/2007 6:33:21 PM
So much richness and so much poverty.
All I want is to go home
You express a universal and repeated theme of the human condition, Leysa. Sad but true and your words touch my soul. Thank you for sharing. Love and best wishes to you,
Dwelling (Poetry) - 8/22/2007 5:08:55 PM
The sad thing is we can very rarely go back no matter how appealing it feels in our hearts. When we leave love behind or it leaves us, we can recapture the moment now and then in our minds but that is all. The best we can hope for is to be thankful for such lovely memories and hope the present ones will someday be just as special in the vaults of our memories. HUGS
Dwelling (Poetry) - 8/22/2007 1:49:53 PM
THIS is so good. For some strange reason it brings to mind the George Jones/Aaron Neville song, "The Grand Tour." Very well done . . .
Monday's Rain (Poetry) - 7/12/2007 7:11:15 PM
very very good!. You set the stage for this lovely romantic piece well with the vivid nature imagery, then took the reader into the warmth of sunshine with the ending piece. Exceptional work!

He Is Lost to Me (Poetry) - 6/28/2007 6:17:38 PM
This poem snaps open like a bamboo fan, like woodpeckers exploit the best of both worlds - foraging in Mother Earth, but living in the trees - Leysa - the woodpecker's beak is poorly suited for hammering marital hardwood - they choose rotted trees to chisel their homes - yet these uncanny birds' narrow beaks, with uncanny precision - nab ants! Thus a tail-flaring ritual mating dance - they may dance for days until mates sort themselves and settle territorial bondaries - when two finally either rediscover each other, and pair off, a tree branch makes a fine mating post - marital eviction can be swift for the unwitted - He Is Lost to Me - from an ecological point of view - and a marital point of view (heart) - passion is a keystone species - much coveted nest activity...optimistic rebirth...be well, Leysa...Blessed Be,
He Is Lost to Me (Poetry) - 6/28/2007 5:50:34 PM

I admire the determination and the hope that you express via your verses here, Leysa. These sentiments are not unfamiliar to me. Thank you. Love and peace to you,
He Is Lost to Me (Poetry) - 6/28/2007 9:05:15 AM
Intense yearning and strong longing as the hope and optimism still linger that it is not over till the end.
Let It Rain (Poetry) - 6/15/2007 9:03:19 AM
beautiful, haunting, bittersweet...this fine piece is all that and much more
Let It Rain (Poetry) - 6/1/2007 7:18:52 AM
Um....Yes "Let It Rain"
felt this really good....i agree with Karen spoke loud
Let It Rain (Poetry) - 5/29/2007 5:43:52 PM
You speak volumes with this one. A love comes and goes before time has a chance.....
Let It Rain (Poetry) - 5/29/2007 5:34:37 PM
Leysa, This is very good. Very heart rendering. It is the greatest hurt of all when love is not returned, or ends before one is ready for it to.
Let It Rain (Poetry) - 5/29/2007 4:58:42 PM
Ahhh but for that one sweet moment the world stood still in bliss and a memory was created for all time. Love this one Leysa.

Sing It, Karen Carpenter (Poetry) - 4/25/2007 8:52:38 AM
I do love this, Leysa. I love the Carpenters too. I was so saddened when Karen departed so early. My latest poem here is also about rain. I do know these sentiments. Thank you for sharing them. Love and peace to you,
Sing It, Karen Carpenter (Poetry) - 4/25/2007 8:34:36 AM
Oh Leysa this is potent. I can see me sitting there with a steaming cup of tea looking out the window and also contemplating love that never seems to quite make sense. I can feel the ache of your longing tempered with past hurts that can never truly be forgiven. Though sad this is beautiful for in order to have this sadness you must have also experienced the love to make it so painful now.
Sing It, Karen Carpenter (Poetry) - 4/25/2007 5:48:34 AM
This made me FEEL, this is a brilliant poem Leysa!

Pass the Menu, Please (Poetry) - 3/27/2007 1:20:53 PM
Wow...this is fantastic Leysa, it cuts right to the chase and I could almost feel the slight self satisfaction of revenge tempered with just a dash of sympathy where now is probably deserved. Great recipe for a new outlook on life.

This whispers the hope and joy of what the future can hold when we allow ourselves to dream even after we are let down with life.

This is one special tribute to one special Dad.

Very well expressed...so vivid i might even know this person...!!
The Curl (Poetry) - 5/31/2006 5:43:20 AM
It is funny sometimes how somthing so simple can be so sensual. To another person it may be the eyes, or the dimple on a chin, perhaps a lip that is just a little fuller then most. I think that is the beautiful thing about humanity we all have our own distinct characteristics both inside and out. Great write Leysa you really outdid yourself here in capturing this new topic.
Direction (Poetry) - 5/30/2006 12:56:53 PM
The hardest deicisions we are forced to make in life are those based around the issue of love...love for boyfriends or girlfriends, husbands or wifes, children and parents even are the facts that will almost always hang in the balance. It is nice to see you back Leysa, we have missed you.
Direction (Poetry) - 5/30/2006 9:29:48 AM
A strong credo for, it seems, an equally strong woman. I enjoyed this!

2 AM Blues (Poetry) - 3/23/2006 9:07:06 AM
You have a great reserve of inner strength that you haven't even begun to tap into Leysa, it shows up more then once in your writing and when you need it and call on it, I'm sure you will be there.
2 AM Blues (Poetry) - 3/23/2006 8:17:25 AM
2am blues, been there, done that...hope you get past it...Ed

Perhaps . . . (Poetry) - 2/1/2006 12:47:05 PM
Oh Leysa I can truly understand this, it is such bitter sweetness knowing the love is still there and wanting the magic to be still there along side of it. As we age and years grow shorter strange things happen in loving relationships and not all of them are good.
Well written my friend.

The Search (Poetry) - 1/14/2006 1:52:39 PM
Truer words have seldom been written. I think of it as evolution... this being able to fall in love and stay in love with one so far away. We have never seemed capable of doing that before. It reminds me of this...
dreams are wishes
your heart makes
while you sleep
The Purple Dress (Poetry) - 1/12/2006 1:50:54 PM
A most uplifting and empowering declaration, Leysa. Symbolic and meaningful as well. Thank you for sharing this offering. Love and peace,

The Purple Dress (Poetry) - 1/5/2006 3:30:32 PM
Wonderful Leysa!! Power to you and that symbolic purple dress!
May you 'live each day fully, one day at a time...
To embrace the gifts, to laugh out loud,
to sing, to write, to compose a rhyme,
To love again, to live, to pray, to rejoice
to tread new paths, to ford new streams.'
Love & Friendship Suzie xox :-)
