For a second maybe two our eyes meet Yours held mine prisoner Me gladly surrendering Joyfully longingly falling Into those clear cool pools The moment now gone You turn away Would you smile a welcome? Do you know this heart? reaching We will never know Copyright © 2019 Penny Wilson Image by Olichel Adamovich from Pixabay
The Sun so loved the Moon. Her luminous smile set his heart aflame. His burning desire shone for all to see. But he yearned for the darkness. The Moon lit the night, paving the way for his dreams. The glow of her celestial presence would wash over him, cooling the flames. There were times when she would blush a deep red. As if she knew his thoughts. This is when he loved her the most. The Stars shared the night with the Moon, as the Sun never could. The Sun looked on; his desperate heart aching. He knew he would never be with the radiant beauty that he loved from afar. The Stars twinkled a “tisk, tisk”; for they had the wisdom of the heavens. The Sun loved in vain. He would wait for the night so that his dreams would carry him to his beloved.

I love Michael’s blog, Afterwards. He’s funny, uncensored, and irreverent. But once in a while he lets his softer side show. This is an example of one of those times. Please enjoy this lovely poem by Michael. ❤
I was sure I had found you once,twice more... I've felt your arms around me felt your strength the heat of your heart Just a dream I've seen your eyes They're the color of the sea on a winter morning Your passion has held me enthralled me I give myself to you just to awaken to an empty room A dream I thought I saw your smile in passing I felt the electricity The same as my dreams You're out there I know it I feel it I feel you Copyright (C) 2019 Penny Wilson
