Tapestry Shadows

Purple shadows

Softly inch

Across the floor,

From through the shades.

A door ajar

Entices exploration;

Beguiles me from these

Easy rooms in which

No gloom invades

     Their glory.


No sorrow dare disturb

Its quiet sanctity

Where love abides

And peace pervades.

Yet nothing

Stays the same;

Where life resides

No single name

Tells all Life's

       Hidden story.

My heart goes out

And shouts

Its theme, 

Its dream 

Of definition.

Piercing love

And subtle artistry

Cannot define 

What lives in majesty

Beyond this pale

And yet pervades it All.

     How bleak the sun

That shines

Then hides

      Inside the clouds of grays.


     How bright the clouds

Whose edges glow

With shimmering gold

     Of shielded sun's own rays.


     How shadows on the ground

Leap up and

Lengthen out into

     Autumn changing Earth.


     How frequently the miracle!

Dynamic life occurs

'Tween birth, death,

     Then again, rebirth.


     Now comes the wintertime,

Down out of frozen north

To steal my summer's diadem,

     And to linger going forth.


     Now comes its crispness,

Bringing on a tingling thrill

When snow and ice

      Have frozen stream and hill.


     Now spring peeks through

Invades our dreams at night

Dispels the gloom

     And lights the virile light.


     Now draws me out

Into the springtime lively din,

Before shadows shorten

    To scorching summertime again.

Impressions when

I think of you,

As I often do

Exist illuminated

In shimmering color

Like a rainbow,

Ever brightly new,

Slightly arched and pulsating,

Moving in a kind of

Fluid rhythmic brew ~

Inviting me to take a sip

To share its magic,

To revel in and capture

What we never knew

      Till now.

Morning ~

Light ~

Glistening dew ~

Chirping sounds

Affirm

The view!

A signet ring

A string of pearls,

A heady crimson wine.


For songs to sing

For embers' glow,

For what is yours and mine.


To float in space,

To live in time,

To see your smiling face.


The silver bells

The partridge knows

The song of love foretells.


Come sing with me!

Come taste the wine!

Come, let forever be!


Be bright as sun,

Be two in love,

Be, ever after, one.


______© Nellieanna H. Hay

Shrinking shadows mesrmerize

Blinking dawns atone.

The sparkle of a baby's eyes

On Love's behalf, alone

Brings pause to struggle and delays

And stills the rush of days.


Brings praise for what

We had and have

Allows our hearts to soar,

As we recount our many joys

And sing forevermore,

Of this, our chance, our shore.


If we might have another life,

Another taste and chance

To ignore the tiresome strife,

We could love and share and dance,

Embrace our joy up to the rim,

Enhance the days to their very brim!

"I need you really bad",

he said.

Grinning sheepishly,

He asked,.

"Can you be really bad?"

Only half in jest.


She simply smiled

Her little smile

And knew

She could afford

To let him wonder,

And figure out the rest.

When sorrows seem

To stalk our souls,

When tempted to give in,

When it seems

That we can endure

No more,

When all the light

Grows dim,

We look upon

An empty page,

So bright,

So clean,

So pure,

Inviting us to share it here,

To trust our inner sage.

We pour our heartaches out,

Dispelling our despair,

Resolving all our doubt.

Till problems seem

To disappear,

Dissolve,

Resolve -

Right now,

Right here

Upon each new

Fulfilling page.

Freedom never

Felt so bare.

It ever looked so bleak.

I'm stunned,

     I stare

In utter,

Awesome

Disbelief,

And yet

I stand aside

And looking into me

     I see

Me smiling

All the while

I'm like a child

     At play

I'm feeling filled

With

Utter,

Unspoiled

Awesome

     Glee!

I can feel your soul. First sadness, then the joy of letting be, bringing memories to the present moment...I love the poems, beloved Nellieanna.

Much love,

Nellieanna M'dear,

When you bestow on us a bouquet such as this, like a spray of fresh cut flowers, how can I praise one above another?

Just know that once again you have made me smile and sigh and appreciate what I may have overlooked.

Thank you.

As always Nellieanna you hit life,s nail straight on the head with your beautiful poems. The last one was especially strenghtening for any soul that might be feeling that burdens could be sometimes hard to bear. The fact, as you so wisely pointed out, is that there is an inner joy in all of us if we just took a few seconds to notice it.


Nellieanna profile image

Nellieanna 6 years ago from TEXAS Author

Melinda, lovely lady - thank you! You always "see through" to the heart of it. I appreciate you so much! Your praise is priceless!

Nellieanna 6 years ago from TEXAS Author

Acer - Ah, yes. Those moments pepper one's existence but the inner spirit can be "spiced up" by them! I'm reasonably sure that nothing is essentially "good" or "bad" in itself, but takes on those by our interpretation, understanding and use of life's variables. Some things indeed have strong leanings one or the other direction, but any two people experiencing them still see and feel them differently, leaning toward either. Thanks for reading and contemplating this collection!

Nellieanna 6 years ago from TEXAS Author

Christopher Price, dear friend - my heartfelt thanks. I love fresh cut flowers and keep them on my coffee table at all times! (I've tried to quit, but just can't! hehe - I'm too hooked.) You're right - each flower is its own presentation and touches off its own responses. No need to choose, though my current enthusiasm is oriental lilies, especially some colors which make me smile and be thankful for beauty, as all of them do. So I love the metaphor! It speaks to me!! Thank YOU!


Nellieanna profile image

Nellieanna 6 years ago from TEXAS Author

Christopheranton - ah - thank you, kind sir. I do know that "things" are made bright or dark by the inner sense of them we bring.

No question that feeling the dark is a real and undeniable one. In fact, I'm convinced that it IS necessary in order that we can know and feel the light. The trouble starts when we get stranded in the sense of the dark when the impetus for it has lightened up - and that's a very real human tendency. It becomes a choice at that point - to linger in our own dark sensitivity or to let go and look at the light we can bring to any experience - to notice it, as you so aptly put it!

Of course your poetic beauty never fails to shine through for all of us to be a witness to your huge talent as a writer and poet. You pour your soul out in each verse and weave them like feathers gently embracing us all and leaving us feeling so warm and fuzzy all over like one of your snuggie bears. This poem especially caught my attention and rang some cord in my spirit, thank you Nellieanna.

Nellieanna-You NEVER seis to AMAZE me with your gift of prose and drawing/painting. You gave us so much to think about in these beautiful poems. I especially liked the line in your poem that said, moving in a kind of fluid rhythmic brew, inviting me to take a sip. This is so full of emotion and images. UP AWESOME BEAUTIFUL AWESOME

Your poetry is mellifluous but the one that really tickled me is the one that begins: "I need you really bad,", he said . . .

Perfection, nellieanna, sheer perfection!


SilverGenes 6 years ago

Light and shadow may shift and play throughout the day but there is always balance in the stroke with which you paint. "And subtle artistry-Cannot define-What lives in majesty-Beyond this pale-And yet pervades it All." And yet we pursue it like catching remnants of a dream, perhaps this time, perhaps the next. I was reminded a little of Emily Dickinson, or perhaps more of what I imagine her writing would be had she experienced life further. Nellieanna, thank you for the words to the heart songs.

Nellieanna, I am, as always after reading your poems, speechless. Mesmerized. You and your poems and paintings are truly so unique and special, like precious ancient art. When I was (very) young, I collected poems like yours in my special anthology – and I read it many times over and over. And every read brought a deeper meaning. I think I should print all your poems, put in a file and read it when lying in bed, waiting for my lover, Sir Sleep. You are so special! I’m giving you a big hug!


Nellieanna profile image

Nellieanna 6 years ago from TEXAS Author

Minnetonka Twin - how beautiful your comments are. Thank you! Most of these in this hub are more recently written, though the stash of earlier ones is scarcely diminished. But lately I've been more poetic, which happens from time to time and it's no wonder that it has been happening now, - with all the lovely encouragement! Thanks for the votes!


Nellieanna profile image

Nellieanna 6 years ago from TEXAS Author

drbj - hehe. Thank you, lady. That one was included for its slightly wicked comic relief value. Glad you liked. Perhaps if I ever apply to that - ahem - university you founded, I'll get a nod.

I certainly thank you for the lovely compliments, not to mention the most welcome visit. I feel honored when you stop by!

Nellieanna 6 years ago from TEXAS Author

Saddlerider - hehe - my snuggle bears are getting a workout now that cooler weather has begun! This little fellow on the back of the couch makes a wonderful pillow, too. And of course Ludwig von Bearthoven is keeping me honest about playing the piano or keyboard at least some daily! It's worth it just for his fuzzy hugs when I've fulfilled my commitment!

I'm especially glad you found that poem. I'm sure that writing gives you, as it does me, comforts when some of that is needed. It's almost as though our own muses comfort us and give us sage counsel we might not otherwise have tapped into. What is wonderful about that is that one is never any further away from it than - right there at the tips of our fingers to express what is inside our deepest recesses of soul and heart. Hugs.

Nellieanna 6 years ago from TEXAS Author

SilverGenes - dear heart - it thrills me when you pick some lines to mention which you have especially noticed and which may have "spoken to" you personally, perhaps because of kindred souls. I am akin to E.D. too, actually. Her work & life were unfinished, so . . .

Thanks for your ever-welcome visit and comments!


Nellieanna profile image

Nellieanna 6 years ago from TEXAS Author

Martie - I just came from reading your marvelous account of your lovely country and it is I who need to be speechless! I'm certain to go back and read it again - and any more you add to the account!

When I kept my poems quite "close to my breast" and seldom shared them with anyone but a chosen few, I would have penned by hand some of them in a little blank book just for YOU. I'm still adventuring to be sharing on so broad and random a venue of readers, but it's gratifying that those who do choose to read them are like those chosen few back then who seemed to care. Thank you and big hugs back!

Howdy Nellieanna, I would love you to stop by and give me your critique of my last two hubs. They came out of the shadows and I had to pen them before the mood was lost:0) thank you in advance. Hugs and give Bearthoven an extra squeeze from the saddle:0)

Hello, hello, profile image

Hello, hello, 6 years ago from London, UK

Thank you, Nellieanna, for the joy you gave me with these wonderful poems. You can put so much into it. The description of the surrounding, mood and deeply felt thoughts. Not to mention the beautiful painting. There is so much warmhearted feeling in them.


Nellieanna profile image

Nellieanna 6 years ago from TEXAS Author

hello, hello - thank you, dear friend. There is much feeling in them because I know no other way to write, especially poetry. Either it arises from the inner recesses of my heart and soul or it just doesn't happen. I never fret for it when it doesn't because I know - at least with myself - to push or prompt or force can only drive away the muse & produce junk, which is all I can write deliberately. Since it seems that my muses feel comfortable here, I'm seldom at a loss because they're not at a loss!

Truly - I am amazed when I've written something nice, - that it actually sounds like my writing, because in penning it, it seemed more like just taking dictation and writing it down! LOL. But it's also good to notice that it really does reflect my heart and soul, as I reread it - or is it that my heart and soul reflect the words I'm inspired to pen?- I shall never really know, because I've written happy things during some of the most distressing and almost crushing times of my life and yet only a few of my poems written during such times reflect anything but hope, positive contemplation about the meaning of life & other positive expressions. That was very good because my main "reason" for writing my poetry then was to be able to to to it and go back and read it and be reassured that I still did, in fact, exist - because someone else was intent on destroying my being without actually taking my life! I hung on to it by writing and being able to "find" myself intact in my poems - as well as in other creative and useful things I did to stay whole. But only in the poetry could I actually communicate with myself as I was and am. I thought of it as my "friend, - me". It's a most valuable thing to be able to have such an outlet for one's self-expression - at any time but especially when oneself is at risk in some way or another.

Thank you for your lovely comments. I never dreamed that my poems would touch the hearts of others! hugs.

Nellieanna profile image

Nellieanna 6 years ago from TEXAS Author

Silent Reed! (smiling) How true. If someone prefers melancholia, it's endangered by hope. LOL. I don't advocate rejecting sad or negative feelings which arise naturally, only that people don't add a room for them to take up permanent residence. All feelings are healthy as they come and go. It's unhealthy to try to latch on to one type of feeling to the exclusion of all others, though. My poems illustrate the flow of feelings with an overall sense of contentment and joy of living. I'm delighted if that is what they convey! Thank you, sweet person!

You can brighten a gloomy day, having spent all morning doing battle with the tax man after reading your beautiful work I'm almost tempted to forgive even them... Almost !

I love your pictures as well, you sure you can't draw Dust Bunnies ?


Nellieanna profile image

Nellieanna 6 years ago from TEXAS Author

hehe - I "draw" dust bunnies in every corner of my house! Just so I don't draw any in my oven, I'm OK with them, though! hehe

Not to feel too alone with the tax man. October 15th is the FINAL deadline for my much procrastinated dual tax returns to go in! Actually it could be 3 of them. One for my personal taxes, one for the George Hay Estate taxes and - if I'd made any income from the ranch, one for that. If I turn in the expenses of it without income to balance any of them, I'd be in hot water, for sure. Fortunately don't have to battle with the IRS on a personal basis otherwise. I just have to finish up on TurboTax, where I got a good start on 'em in the original time schedule last April. I expect there to be some issues I missed in my haste to be sure to get all income listed and paid for to prevent the accumulation of interest and penalties before I follow through with all the details. I did that and sent in my pound of flesh, so hopefully I'm safe. But I still may need to read some of these poems my own self! LOL.

Good luck with your tax guy & of course, with your blood pressure! One thing about paying taxes - it is one evidence we cleared some income!

Hugs & thank you for the words of encouragement!

How marvelous that she was up to walking on the beach. Sounds most encouraging! I'll continue to keep her in my prayers.

Yes - it is smart for folks to have regular check ups. And it's a myth that darker complexions are out of harm's way for skin cancer. Just not so, though there's greater risk with lightest skin with least pigment protection. - I'm quite fair, so I'm always cautions of sun exposure. But the rays are not only in direct sunlight. Everyone needs caution.

Add Your Comment..Dear Anna, how kind you are. I does come naturally, for sure. It has been like my closest companion and confidante over the years.

Well, the carpal tunnel I was nursing along to which Genna referred has improved, but in the meantime, on Aug. 21, I lost a dear, dear granddaughter, Carla Byrne, at only 38. Such a wretched and unthinkable thing. I’ve wanted to finish and publish a hub about her dear life, but haven’t been quite up to it yet. Soon after that, I took a tumble which has left me with a painful side which hasn’t improved much; so am going to see the doctor tomorrow to be sure it’s not really serious as it feels. I’m so blessed with good health for someone who’ll be 83 in 4 or 5 months, I’m just spoiled. These maladies are such an inconvenience!

I very much want to get back to writing, and am sure I will. Thank you for the love and positive energy. It helps!
