Love Poetry Contest Winners
Congratulations to our May Love Poetry Contest Winners, Cynthia Hack, with her entry 'Dreaming Away', and Susannah Bec with her entry, 'When I am gone'.
Something is calling me away from this day
A shade of lavender or a song of love
I sail this salty ocean of memories
and plunge for the precious pearls of days gone by
For dreams kept alive by the danger and heat and holy flame
A royal sun lingers there weaving silent spells into your silken hair
I return to an eternal embrace
Where you and I blend perfectly into a holy trinity
This sheltering embrace which cannot be erased by time or tears
I return to the passion and perfection of your eyes meeting mine
Wisdom working just beneath your warm, youthful skin
Burning within your mind
Each day we found new as morning flowers misted with dew
And gathered each one reverently as though they were poetry
To inhale the scent of unity
So something calls me away on this pale, wind stripped day
Days and dreams now distant as Saturn
A shade of sepia in autumns elegant elegy
I descend to find buried treasure
And gather together this colorful symphony of sublime kisses and strong sinews
Days when love welcomed me and flowed on endlessly like a river melts into the sea
Days when magic and miracles came so easily
As easily as our hands and hearts have the power to change fate
Days when love was passionate as a prayer
And the sun shined brilliantly
In the sweet sapphire skies
And so time has told me a story of love
Earnestly and honestly showing my true reflection
Giving me the secret of eternity to guide me
Truthfully and gracefully
My bones become shaky as my love is made stronger
The cold becomes bitter as my prayers are made sweeter
My body grows older
But my thoughts become purer
My heart fuller
My songs bolder
And so another day passes away
Nothing more than a brush stroke or a single note in the divine masterpiece
Love is here inside me and in everything around me
I hide away with it kept warm by whispers of sanctity
Love is all that is needed
It is the power of the earth and the peace of heaven
And the dreams you share with me are noble as a lions heart
Rare as ruby fields
Eternal, the answer to every question is this love
The melody to every hymn is our love
The amen to every prayer and every omen from above
Is our lasting love

When I am Gone
When I am gone, I leave to you
the sunlight that sparkles on the lake
the fresh green grass and the scent of lilacs.
You may have all birdsong and a billion stars
and a soft warm breeze to touch you in my stead.
I leave you the seasons and their unending procession
deep roots and swallows swooping in summer blue sky.
White fluffy clouds and sunsets, you may have those too.
Fresh green leaves, ancient woodlands and gnarled bark,
the first crocus as it peeps through springs dark damp earth
and every russet coloured leaf that swirls in autumn is yours.
Ocean waves and soft sand, shells and driftwood, as much as you can carry.
Every friendly dog you pass in the street, the wag of their tails is just for you.
And when snow falls as it invariably will, its deep silence belong to you, just you.
The sound of every bell, the tinkle of every windchime, all yours.
Dappled sunlight dancing through deep shade is yours.
Clifftop walks and soaring gulls, they too are yours.
Filtered light and darkest night, all yours.
Rustling leaves, humming bees, yours.
Galloping horses and sleeping cats,
pale pink roses, and all my love,
are yours . . . all yours.
