A gem from the past!





Too many times a teardrop fills an eye


Then overflows to cause a perfect stream


Upon a face that did not want to cry


But deep inside a mind still dares to dream


How often have you watched a river form


From just a tiny trickle of desire?


A tender rain that soon became a storm


And flooded out Love's ever-raging fire

I like your poem, Austin, for its honesty and positive resolution.

I see from your profile that you are open to read requests. I'd enjoy hearing what you think of my newest poem, 'For why this sudden rush of green?'

Keep writing and enjoying your love and respect for nature. It keeps us sane!

Ah yes! The grasses are like fervent warriors of time; lush and green in their prime.

Stretching to their highest crowning glory, they find their strength in numbers,

competing for the light, but soon their seeds take golden flight.

This offering appeases the god of nature; he returns to them a reward for their

determination, the gift of eternal germination.

A perfectly understood and well thought out poem.
