No Goodbyes

This could never be goodbye,
for I know we’ll write together again.
The question is not if,
I only ask when?

Writimg with you
has been a true inspiration,
each day a new assignment,
words toying with my imagination.

But it’s much simpler than that,
as words flowed freely from my mind,
even though I seem to be playing catch up,
always feeling just a bit behind.

For I have so much left to read,
your words are something I want to see.
Your support and comments have touched my heart,
gratefulness I felt from the start.

A huge thank you to all the great writers I’ve seen.
I loved being part of a Writing 101: Poetry.

Graffiti: The Heart’s Story

Today’s prompt for Writing 101: Poetry is graffiti.

A mixture of words and pictures upon a wall,
swirls of color to tell one and all,
the piece of a story of someone’s life,
whether it be of love or filled with strife.

Expression through images of the heart.
Is it graffiti or is it art?
The deepest of feelings intertwined
in vibrant images popping from the mind.

For this jumble of colors is his way
to express to all what he has to say.
Words through twisted pictures
become a semi-permanent fixture.

The fact that is appears as “ugly” graffiti to some
doesn’t lessen the meaning of the story his heart has sung.

Today’s prompt for Writing 101: Poetry is beloved. The first thing that came to mind was my parents. They shared a love so tender and sweet that it’s difficult to know they aren’t together anymore.

He saw her across a crowded room,
just a glimpse
but his heart knew
that she was the one for him.

A love so true it sealed their fate,
college sweethearts
who could not wait
to begin life as husband and wife. 

A life they shared together as one,
a true family
with one daughter and a son,
their life and love continued on. 

Then illness struck,
taking her from him,
only a stroke of malicious luck
could bring their marriage to an end.

But love prevails,
going beyond even death,
because soul mates never fail
to keep their love alive. 

A connection not to be torn apart,
beginning decades ago,
forged a bond between two hearts,
for love never fails. 

More than once I’ve heard him say
that just mere minutes
either way
could have kept him from his beloved.
