and how could it be…
hearing only her laughter, singing
the melody of my every dashed Hope, raining
down in sparks and chords
from soaring skies so high above my broken life,
swirling past faceless strangers
in anonymous rooms. if
there were other voices to hear that night
these ears never heard them, and if
there were other eyes to see,
mine never met them. and if
there is a steady hand
coloring summer days from despair, the
perfect cosmic hand was dealt us that night,
a royal flush of Kings and Queens,
of hearts and diamonds,
of fateful serendipitous
between the lost..
to Scout, my earth Angel
Happy 13th Valentine’s Day

I need more adjectives. Love my Bro. I’m so happy for you, always. Beautiful post.
Such a beautiful poem, especially when it’s accompanied by your amazing artwork. I love, love, love the last stanza–such rich language there. I hope you and Scout have a wonderful Valentine’s Day.
ty so much Yves, your appreciation means an awful lot. it’s been a very long time since i’ve attempted any drawing, certainly none that i would share.
Ethereal to match the picture of your beloved Scout. Sorry I’m late in reading. I hope you had a beautiful day with your family my friend.
oh, no need to apologize Jen, as you can see i’m often late to MY OWN party! lol. ty so much and yes we had a nice quiet V day, Scout loved her poem and drawing. she showed it off to all her friends and her bestie posted it on her Facebook page.
Oh how sweet is she, you have a wonderful relationship and very lucky. Glad you enjoyed.
Wonderful piece for the woman you love.
ty so much, i got a few oohs and ahhs when she saw it.
I bet 🙂
The drawing of your beautiful angel is heavenly and your words so tender and sweet… what a wonderful Valentine’s gift… love love love 🙂
ty ww, it was a labor of Love. i’m beginning to get ‘my eyes’ back,
starting to see like i used to so that’s very hopeful….
What a wonderful gift of love to your love… I’m sure this meant so much more to her than a box of chocolates ever could. Gorgeous. The poem is wonderful and the art stunning.
.ty so much…boxes of chocolate have never been in my vocabulary of gifts Melanie but this combo certainly got her attention.
What a beautiful poem, lucky lady! I love the drawing, I’m very envious of people who can draw too 😛
Hi Ophelia and ty so much., well i’m beginning to appreciate my abilities again after a very long drought, and she did too!

Beautiful Valentine poem and I love the angel drawing…
ty lumar, and ty so much for liking the angel, that image has been
floating in my mind’s eye for a very long time waiting to be set free.

it’s been a long while since i put pen to paper.
Your unconditional, pure love for your “earth angel” touches my heart – deeply! Stunning artwork, incredibly touching poem. I’m speechless.
P.S. I’m sorry I haven’t had a chance to comment earlier. Life has been pretty hectic.
