Air and Thought
January 31st, 2002 | Sabertooth

Posted on 01/31/2002 5:34:04 AM PST by Sabertooth

Air and Thought

All day I dreamed I'd rather be someplace
The air is still and quiet. Some tranquil scene,
Some peaceful seat, where I might savor grace--
How likely that my heart would be serene?

I'd know her laughing footfalls coming there
And I would feel her shadow's cool caress,
Then I would smell the darkness of her hair.
Ahh… Now I hear the rustle of her dress…

She sits, and with each breath, each word, I take
In from her lips, I share her air and thought.
My eyes sip sunlight splashing her, and slake,
For now, a thirst in me… unquenched… unsought.

Intentions blush; our timid joys are met.
Though I am touched, shall I touch her? Not yet.

I love that word. People don't distinguish that emotion as often as they feel it, confusing it with something more. I've even got an unfinished song by that name...

Perhaps this is a sign?

I've always wanted to go to a Poetry reading and snap my fingers after each poem was read. Then after the readings I'd listen to Bob Dylan music and sip on espresso but Uncle Sam had different plans from me in 1968.

The "G" stands for Walter.

I love that word. . .
Cause it rhymes with "kitten".

That's as close to poetry you'll ever get out of me. :o)

Come to me, on bended knee
I am so smitten can't you see?

I can relate!! LOL. The first record I ever owned was a Bob Dylan album. I always liked his poetry/lyrics. I never was a hippie though. Now I have tickets to see him for the first time, at the Houston Rodeo in a few weeks. Who'd a thunk it? I'm really excited, looking forward to it.

One poem deserves another...

So beautiful when she sleeps
Her hair cascades on the pillow
Like a soft silken meadow
My fingers can run barefoot through

So beautiful when she sleeps
Her curves caressed by the covers
As if they were jealous lovers
She sometimes takes my breath away

Just a little song I've been working on...

To be 'touched by Grace' and yet not able return that touch, except in the touching of others, is the essence of 'the Spirit'. Wonderfully done, o poet laureate of FR.

>I had a request for a poem this morning... Everyone suffers...

Mother, Mother, tell me true
Why the moo cow go moo-moo
And the she goat go naa-naa
What is that?
The heck you say!

Father, Father, Mother lied
When she said that you had died
Here you stand now at my bed
You could do that
If you were dead!

Sounds like a Maui encounter.

In the soft Maui night
her hot breath did linger
not feeling the ring
slip from my finger.

True, she has the wrong hair color, but you're supposed to be looking at the scenery. :-)
What scenery?

I dunno how I merited this flag...
Don't know quite what to say; beyond the obvious.
Which all the single & available female Freepers already know.
Hmmmm...
Got it!

WHEN CAPTAIN AMERICA THROWS HIS MIGHTY SHIELD!
ALL THOSE WHO CHOSE TO OPPOSE HIS SHIELD MUST YIELD!!
WHEN HE'S LED TO A FIGHT,
AND A DUEL IS DUE,
THAN THE RED & THE WHITE & THE BLUE COME THROUGH!
WHEN CAPTAIN AMERICA THROWS HIS MIGHTY SHEEEEEILD!

...there; glad I got that off my chest. {g}

Tuesday is a dream she reminds me of my secretary. On another note, did you happen to see Rumsfeld's War College Speech today? I just caught the last part of a reference to using troops on the border, if I understood his response correctly he seemed to be somewhat inclined to do so.

What's the count on those that know I'm pathetic and desperate?

That is one of the most beautiful songs ever written, and I've known it since I was five.



That deserves an appearance from Cap himself....

If the Capt happened to be in Chicagoland?
His shield would make an excellent saucer for goin' down the snow covered hills.
The song was inspired by & courtesy of your profile page.
BTW young man, there's really only one gal you oughta be reading that stuff to, y'know.
She's the prettiest one on the forum by-far; & I *think* she's single, too.

...if I were your age, she'd be the apple of my eye, alright. ;^)
