I have been very slow in getting this post done. I am still trying to catch up on reading everyone’s posts but i’m almost a week behind due to visiting my family so I can’t really say sorry as i’m too happy to be spending time with them but I will keep trying to catch up as I enjoy reading your poems and stories and blogs 🙂
This is a poem that I wrote with the talented Simon, http://isimonfiction.wordpress.com/
This was my first ever collaboration and I was very nervous that I took over the writing (sorry Simon i can be a bit bossy 😛 ). We tried to write all of it together, commenting and critiquing each others sections so that it flowed seamlessly together. I hope you enjoy and sorry for those whom have already read this poem.
I wish I could capture that dreamy blue sky
To keep forever the snow white clouds
I watch that hint of pink creeping
Out on the distant horizon
It all seems so soft and gentle
If only I could hold it like a lovers caress.
I wish I could bottle that sweet summer scent
To preserve for ever the soft sighing wind
I close my eyes, bathe in the warmth
From the majestic sun
It brings to mind such bliss
As being gazed upon by a lovers eyes.
The warmth seeps into my bones
Bestowing upon me such pleasure
That will be kept inside forever
A small keepsake of this perfect day
That an artist in all his ability
Could not dream to capture
Each day is such a treasure
Sweetening memories of harsh winters
Bitter yet softened by the shining, golden sun
So I will bask and savour this day
Of dreamy blue sky and
Magnificent snow white clouds.
