Once Again Mine

Updated on January 12, 2015
Source

This is a winter that warms me like no other

Bliss is attached with the solid Earth Mother.

And with this, my head had been turned anon

As my heart has been smitten, Cupid’s bow drawn.


Perspective is much more than a simple word

For my lot is cast, and I am undeterred.

There is a serious mission ahead of me

It is plain to see, yet no guarantee.


The last vow was to be subjected to more chances

And lastly then, my mind flows to romances.

My grace goes beyond the crossing of the pond,

Where I am met with eyes and charismatic smile beyond.


Day becomes night and life is paramount bliss

Time stands still and even now, I reminisce.

I have seen what has been beyond my reach

I grasp in the shadows of my mind what may entreat.


Have I lost my grip to go out of my comfort zone

For I have found another clamoring to escape alone,

And when the mist of the cool fog clears

I grasp the hand that has thus appeared.


We have travelled through eons in time

While the clock still ticks and elicits a tell-tale chime,

Our hearts beat in unison once more.

The Fates have cast what I implored.


Our lives are no longer in shadows past

We have come through the maze and now, at last

You sit before me, as I witnessed those days unseen

Dressed in black, with creamy skin pristeen.


I bow my head at your tiny feet

My sword lies down as obsolete,

And the tears flow from those delicate eyes

After all this time, you’re once again mine.

      I came back to read again as I so love the romance of the knights and their loves.

      Very evocative poetry, aviannovice (definition: bringing thoughts, memories, or feelings into the mind). I am not sure what you really meant in the poem, but the feelings and thoughts evoked in me were perhaps there is a bird you really miss and she died or he died. And perhaps your poem is your imaginings of how you will one day be able to meet again and be companions. (We miss our African Grey, so I think along those lines.) You are a wonderfully talented poet, Deb.

      Voting up, across and Sharing.

      Jodah, I understand what you're dying, as that has also happened to me with one of my old stories. Who knows?

      Simply precious! What a diversified range in interests you have got!

      Great poem Deb that I read once again. I have never thought to ask other hubbers what their poetry hubs rate but I read Perspycacious' comment and your reply that this rated 71. I have two rated at 85 "the Dying Land" and "Ode to Miss Muffet" and three others in the lower 80s so I suppose that's good if HP rates most poetry in the 60s. Scores go up and down though so I never know where they will be tomorrow. Just noticed one of my highest scoring hubs now is one of my oldest hubs that has only had 6 comments in four years..go figure.

      You know much more about these things here than I do, so I shall wait and see what happens. If I can sell it elsewhere, I surely will.

      My own impression is that any Hub over 65 could find a commercial sale somewhere. So a 71, in my opinion, is saleable. That has to be weighed against what it has and could make on HP. As to the "has made," you can figure out what the present 24 Comments and "X" views have returned, and might return, if you leave it here for the future.

      Thanks for reading it, perspy, as I know that you will always be truthful with me. That means a great deal.

    • aviannovice profile imageAUTHOR

      Deb Hirt 

      3 years ago from Stillwater, OK

      AT he moment, it is at 71, whatever that really means. I have never been sure, if you want to know the truth.

    • Perspycacious profile image

      Demas W Jasper 

      3 years ago from Today's America and The World Beyond

      HP always seems to score poems in the 60's. This is a great poem, and I am curious how HP scored it, if you feel like sharing that with me.

    • Perspycacious profile image

      Demas W Jasper 

      3 years ago from Today's America and The World Beyond

      I am sure, Deb, that this has to be the second or the third time I have read and admired what I consider to be your heartfelt words. I must have been so thought-filled each time that I left without commenting;

      though the second and third times I probably presumed that I had commented the first time.

      Now I am going back to score, and if I am doing that more than once (as some other Hubbers do repeatedly for each other) you deserve it.

      One who can write poetry is akin to one who paints those great works of art (an most all are 'great works' to my eyes). It is a talent that either one has or does not...clearly you are blessed with the gift.
