Voices on september winds ......Verse

Updated on September 10, 2014

And as sounds become voices and
those voices
turn to laughter
your image comes to mind
your eyes
that reflected the autumn blue

I hear your voice in the wind that
turns up the silver sides of willow
and poplar leaves
the tree tops sway in a teasing
wind to remind
me of your laughter
crazy huh?

The love of brothers lost to us
is eternal and in those eternal
hours of memory
I will think of you again
and feel no sadness
"this life was never meant for
one as beautiful as you"

Yet even the beauty of music could
never match your sounds
the one where you would laugh
at a joke or even
when God called on you
here on earth
and you cried out
yes.....I am yours

And even as September symbolically
claims my own years
I will still smile at these winds
that spread your memories like ashes
of a campfire against
these hardwood ridgelines
of autumns colors

      hi Ed I hope all is well. After countless Hackings, and mishaps with old and wearied pc I am on a new Toshiba 8.1 so pray for me. I lost lists and my old Facebook pages..and trying again. One of my new emails is imlaw6666@gmail if you would like to write. miss being in touch and wasn't prepared with names and addresses so my fb page, is rather scant. I'm no longer on hub pages..and no desire to be again but miss you and the friends I made there...hope to hear from you.. I've missed your elegant and eloquent poetry. hugs my friend. take care

      I second Eric, "beautiful" Ed. Memories of Don McLean and "Vincent" as well as "When September Ends" by Green Day spring to mind. Voted up.
