Ripples Raced (poem)

The ripples raced across the pond of gold

Soft memories returning to the shore

To carry hearts across the times before

When dreams had wings which lovers could unfold


With wondrous waves of passion to explore

What blossoms of forever they would mold

The stars upon the waters could behold

As ripples raced across the pond of old


Behold the flow which wishes brought to be

A wave apart to bask in a refrain

That not a single heartbeat would we miss


Did ever pulse so perfect fantasy

As splendors of the Joy which we sustain

While ripples raced across the pond to kiss

Martin, you bring out the passion of a much younger heart, from long ago. A time when a lover's touch was never far away.

You stir the memory with imagination while the music seduces the mind.

You are the master poet, my friend.

Thank you for bringing memories close enough to almost touch.

As you would expect, Martin, I particularly notice your nice experimenting with sonnet format.

In case some readers might not notice, three examples: (a) the title and key words "ripples raced" in both first and last lines, but with the sudden, unexpected "kiss" ending line 14; (b) both stanza organization and rhyme scheme (abba, baaa, cde, cde) innovative for sonnets; and (c) key word "across" used four times.

Continuing encouragement from me, that's for sure.
