Love's World

Blue Sky

As I said before, poetry is not my natural medium. Still, poetry and music have been much on my mind lately. In response to my previous and rather depressing offering, the ever-resilient TechnoBabe asked if I'd written anything that reflects a more current state of mind. The short answer is no. However, I will share one more poem that is close and that is, perhaps, my personal favorite.


Once upon a lonely I'm
Happy in a sudden let's
Show me how a heart forgets

Caught between a have of or
Rainier than Autumn sighs
Hold me in your sparkling eyes

Lost inside a flash of if
Something less than very we
Something more than simply me

Show me how a heart forgets
Stranded on a shoal of time
Happy in a sudden let's
Once upon a lonely I'm


Written about and for the woman who would become Mrs. Cricket, soon after we met. Her eyes are an alarming shade of pale blue and do, in fact, sparkle. Fourteen years later, I still mean every word.

Respectfully Yours,

Lucky girl, Mrs. Cricket.

Nicely done too.

Awwwww... So sweet.

For some bizarre reason, this brings to mind A. A. Milne, albeit with a mature edge.

Good pome, cricket. I liked it a lot.


Man, I truly understand how it is to love ONE WOMAN more than all the rest that desired my love.

Really, I do. Nyuk...

Congrats on 14 years with the love of your life. Pam and I will soon (April 7) celebrate our 32nd anniversary. And, it was 2 1/2 years before that when we started dating. I never cared a bit about another girl after the night I saw her across a crowded room... met her in the Airline High School Gym the night before she turned 16 at a basketball tournament (November 19, 1976).

Good on you, my friend. Good stuff.

HA!!!! Word verification: tickey

An absolutely beautiful love poem. Speaks volumes to a hopeless romantic such as me.;)
