Back Then

Yesterday's ink
gives a view
into my thoughts
of you
back then 

Back then
tomorrow was never
spoken

Today's view
has been tarnished
by the soot
on the panes of glass 

Smoke from the fire
that once burned   

For you

Back then

Reason to Smile

He smiles 
to himself 

remembering the 
moments shared  

his smile reflects 
a lifetime 
of laughter & tears 
pleasure and pain 

his skin remembers
her touch
 
his soul remembers
her love

although she's gone 
nothing 
can take away 
the reason 
for his smile

When Dreams End

Image by Enrique Meseguer from Pixabay 
*By Penny Wilson And Charles Robert Lindholm

Deep asleep 
and dreaming 

The vision 
of your face 

Came to me 
last night 

With sweet lips smiling 
and your eyes sparkling

You came to         
hold my hand                   
and walk with me
down memory lane     

I felt your touch 
and saw our love  

I can't wait until
the dreams end
and we can be 
together again

Dancing with the angels

where we have a 
never ending future
to share

endeavor and that you will take a moment and visit Chuck's blog too!

#NaPoWriMo-Day 15-Memories and Wishes

I keep my memories
and wishes
tucked inside a box The vessel unimportant Its what’s inside the box that calls to me Inside I hear the beating of your heart smell your skin and taste your lips you
now on wingtips

left behind memories
nestled beside wishes Copyright © 2021 Penny Wilson

Telling My Secrets to the Stars

I awoke

with a start. 

The taste

of your kiss

still lingering

on my lips. 

For answers

I look

to the night sky,

telling my secrets

to the stars. 

The man in the moon

listens

but offers

no guidance.
