A gem from the past!

 

 

Stream

 

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.
