hook echo

Close your eyes.
Let me come to you as an odd storm,
one that places the soft-stunned bird
back upon her branch, feathers floating from the ground
to take their places in sequence along her wing.

Let the lost home rise up again,
the lamp righted and lit.
Dream and imagine your heart, unbroken.

And a 55 for the super fab G Man

Anything I could say would only take away from the magic of this Shay--a prayer, a promise, words like a soft touch in the night--it couldn't say it more perfectly if it had 55 million words.

G-Man said...

What do I need you for?
Validation!!!
You are one of the Worlds GREATEST Romantics.
Loved your tender 55
I always smile ear to ear when I see your Avatar.
Thanks for yet another Masterpiece of Love, and have a Kick Ass Week-End

Breathtaking! How often I have longed for the rewind button to a place before endings! Now I just pull out a piece of paper.

Poetry as soft as feathers ... Love as soft as feathers ... gorgeous 55 for the G-Man. THEN, there is Joan.
(lots of her on my son Carl's I-pod)

Ah! To imagine the bird back on its perch, unharmed, and the heart unbroken again...Sublime.

Sherry Blue Sky said...

OMG, the best ever. Especially the last three lines. You took my breath away with this one.

Margaret said...

To right the broken, to amend the past so today is perfect ... to go back in time in order to soothe and restore. Wow. You have honored me and left me speechless with such a purely lovely 55. (although I couldn't help but think this would be an AWESOME underwear ad :)

This is utterly astonishing, Shay. Such indescribable tenderness in this piece.

There are poems I carry with me in my purse. Your poem reminds me of one by Lady Izumi (b. 976)
“Loving you, my heart may shatter into a thousand pieces,
but not one piece will be lost.”
Now your will sit next to hers.
Thank you

Yes, this is softness.
