I thout I would share this lovely poem with you all.

Night Blossom

Kiss the petals when the stars all bloom,
Dance the spiral and jump the broom,
Climb the gyre through the darkened storm,
By the crescents horns the night is born,
And as I walked that lonely stair,
And rode the sky on a starry mare,
A great white owl rose in the sky,
And dreamed the flight of lullabies,
Grandmother gazing from the stars,
With shadowy eyes and silvery hair,
Becoming a newborn child,
Gazing down in the midnight air,
Spiraling down in the nighttime sky…
And there within the halos’ nest,
The tattered wings of ravens rest,
The woven twig and thread and thorn,
The twinkling eyes of the moonlit faun,
And as I climbed that lonely tower,
There within the midnight hour,
The piping of the hillside breeze,
The orchestra of windy trees,
Old one gazing from the stars,
Wrinkles of wisdom and lines of grace,
Suddenly the world grows calm,
When you show your newborn face,
Spiraling down in the nighttime sky…
The drifting smoke of our vigil fires,
Rises through the rainbow crown,
The movement of the dance inspires,
A vision spiraling to the ground,
And as I wandered lost in awe,
Without a worry or a fright,
The loneliness was here no more,
As silver wings filled the night,
The mirror in the indigo,
Soft as sand and white as snow,
Newborn eyes young and bright,
Grace the elder face of night,
Spiraling down in the nighttime sky…
~Twilight

It's also a song. You can find more at this website: http://www.woodlandmusic.net/

I wish I could write like that too. I don't think any of my poetry quite amounts to it.

(Sniff) I'm going to find a site that teaches me how to write ballads and study up! I'll do it and write something that won't emotionally scar whoever reads it.

Raven don't be so modest. you know you write just as well, if not better. Now it's my turn. I wish I could write better than I do. Most of my stuff isn't all that good.

Thank You Kosra!

What both of you ought to remember is that each individual writes differently, with a different style. Each art work can be loved the same as any other. It is not the poetry itself that makes it great, but the meaning behind it. Each poem or story greater than anyone elses. It is equal in meaning and worth. Whether it be hilarious, ridiculous, or darn right serious.

Tootles,
Raven

NOw Raven what you need to do is take your own advice here. youare the one who said you wished you could write that well. NOw you are sayingyou can. thats kind of contradictory. Luv ya though

Yes, well remember, I never give myself credit for a lot of things. You just made me think differently with your comment.

Of course I did. you know as well as i do that we force each other to see things differently and to see who we really are. and what we can really do. I thank you raven for all that you have given me.
