Tend to believe this is true, I saw my Father at foot of my bed a few days after he passed on, and sometimes my 2nd hubby comes to me in dreams = like it's so real too.

Very pretty, calm and graceful.
in a Swans Lake (Poetry) - 6/10/2014 4:33:57 PM
...captivating poem Vivian...in so few words
but...layers of metaphors...symbolism and so
characteristic for your wonderful writing...rich
undertones...it sings...It sings the fairy-tale
song of "out of this world"'s love/faith/destiny.
...two choreographed shadows dance the devotion
rhythm...symphony of human spirit...hovering above
the shore of Swans Lake...place...where once before
...pure in heart man proclaimed his love...in
a most memorable story of star-crossed lovers.
Thank you Vivian, for your poetic/intellectual
regale...Feast...I needed sooooo much.

. . . and love surrenders its grandeur forevermore, tripping the light fantastic with soft words for her ears only as the malleable, thick grass gives of itself to cushion the softness of the lovely woman who is enthralled within his grasp . . .
Retroactive (Poetry) - 6/3/2014 1:07:51 PM
Dear Vivian, I enjoy your poetic writing
immensely...each time...your "Retroactive"
took me on a romantic trip to the place
and time...when people took great care
in all they wore...how they looked...chose
social party...in a most desired place to be
Your short poem said so much about the symmetry
of Art Deco...reflects and praises its modern
aesthetics...full of glitz and glamour...intended
for the elite clientele.
Yes, I can see its contiguity today...and the Great
Gatsby comes to mind...with visually captivating
grand staircase and the details on the entry door
welcoming a dapper gentleman and elegantly dressed
lady...engaging in the best circle...
Thank you Vivian, for the experience.
Retroactive (Poetry) - 6/3/2014 9:03:13 AM
It's nice to have a little bit of retro around the house. But I wouldn't go back to those times because they were much harsher than today, in spite of our fears for the future.
Retroactive (Poetry) - 6/3/2014 4:23:24 AM
You betcha the past touches us and remains close by as we live out our days. Love the title.

...cynical character at a bleak setting
and your poem's lines...suggestive of danger
and echo the classical trend...reflected
in Noir genre...Oh! Vivian...what a great
choice of the silhouetted figure!...it adds
to your exquisite poem.
Thank you for sharing your verse.

cobalt an evening (Poetry) - 6/1/2014 9:53:35 AM
Exciting thoughts and expressions within the confines of this "Noir" poem, Vivian. Although his back is to us, but the man under the streetlight undoubtedly has a cigarette in one hand and his other hand in his trench coat is wrapped around a snub-nosed .38. Noir, indeed.

Heaven on Earth (Poetry) - 1/26/2014 9:12:24 AM
They say the door to Heaven is opened by love so your poem certainly supports that theme. I do like the idea of "twigs of happiness" Conjures up all sorts of images; nests, broken dreams, olive branches: I could go on...
Making a Difference (Poetry) - 1/21/2014 9:21:41 AM
If only it was as simple as painting a picture, however we all need to make a difference and that always starts with a mind picture.

Propensity for Dreaming (Poetry) - 1/12/2014 10:30:09 AM
Isn't that what differentiates us from the rest of the creatures on the Earth, the propensity to dream and love. This is neat and to the point with a universal sentiment.

Sage and encouraging words, Vivian, and may we all aspire to such. Time is an arrow linking our past with our future, showing where we've come from and where we're headed as a guide to 'who we are'; yet all we have is the moment we live in. In that I resolve to know myself and be true to it. Be blessed all your days in 2014. xx

From heart to heart, borne aloft on the summer breezes, gentle waves and the lovers' fond embrace, from sussurations to the force of "each tidal wave" there is as much flow as there is ebb in this "depth perspective"... wonderful work, d.v.

Vision not Withstanding (Poetry) - 11/27/2013 9:44:43 AM
This prompted me to read a few chapters of Summa Theologica to see if predestination had been mentioned therein. Just goes to show what a few lines of simple philosophy can do.

Four Seasons fill the measure of the year;
There are four seasons in the mind of man:
Like Keats your poem picks up on the parallels between our seasons and our lives. Oh for Springtime to return once more.

I've said it twice now this morning... remember that he who has begun a good work in you will see it through until the day of salvation... your poem lend perspective to the unfolding journey of the soul...
...another fine succinct song from the heart of dearest Vivian!

We can not see many things and trust in our faith
faith is our eyes for things we cannot see, Vivian.
Vision not Withstanding (Poetry) - 11/13/2013 6:13:06 PM
Let us hope that such it will be... ...thank you, Vivian. Love and best wishes to you,

Yes, Vivian, Fall turns into Winter with a snap of the finger...and I'm not a big fan of the cold and snow.

I enjoyed reading your well-written poem. Vivian I loved the verses,
"Trust in your soul even if you cannot see it, that is so true because whatever it is that we are, we can't deny the fact that it is.
Vision not Withstanding (Poetry) - 11/12/2013 8:14:02 AM
Unfortunately, "what is meant to be," may not be very pleasant when something untoward strikes through no fault of the person's behavior. The soul has no part in these random things that just happen.

Always feed the soul, or it will die of hunger.

I look and "see" other things, Vivian, but it amounts to the same thing. I understand your poem.

Thank you for sharing these inspirational words with us, Vivian. I was a big JFK fan; I thought he was a wonderful leader and orator. A President to remember through the ages.

Thank you Vivian. I think this is the first Veterans Day I haven't written a poem. I've tried. The words just don't come. Thank YOU for this wonderful message.

You are keeping up the tradition of poems dedicated to the " Season of mists and mellow fruitfulness, Close bosom-friend of the maturing sun" You are in good company.

In nature, the cycle of life and death happens every year. We are the fortunate ones, living long in the scheme of things. You have pictured autumn as it is… just before winter comes.
