With Loving Thoughts and Good Wishes For 2016 Plus ...

I wanted to sing, like the running stream,

Whispering in the Heart of flowers and lovers alike,

Sending its melody, into the core of every pulse.


I wanted to dance, like magic,

Pirouetting with Plisetskaya,

Into the illumining crest of the moon.


I wished for the beauty of the fawn,

Blazing a trail of lingering sweetness,

Into the Heart of natures’ lovers.


I yearned for Happiness.

Flying with the branch of serenity,

Yon snow-white dove, has captivated my Soul.


I longed for Oneness. The Beloved opened my vision

To myriad galaxies, spinning in harmony with the Sun.

      This is lovely, manatita44! You captured the benefits and joys of a good relationship where others would concentrate on the responsibilities alone. This is a wonderful tribute for two wonderful people.

      Yes, a benchmark for loftiness in human love, indeed bordering on the divine, it seems.

      Yes, my Sweet, both you and I know that ultimately God is the only Doer. We have only 'limited' freedom, and so I long for the Freedom or illumination of the Seers where I will rest in Bliss, seeing only the Divine.

      My Love and Gratitude, as always.

      'I longed for oneness'...The sincere seeker in you so beautifully expresses the emotions of longing and devotion.

      And John Legend's song is simply awesome...one of my favorites!

      My Dearest Brother Bill,

      Thank you so much for gracing my Hub, to read and comment on this special poem - you and Bev's poem - so touchingly. I always say - giving and receiving - in this game of life ...so meaningful, so essential; so paramount.
