Our New Eden



I wish to gather every storm cloud
seen lurking in your eyes,
release the weight of unshed tears
and lighten sorrow's sighs.

I'll bring them down one by one,
till all that will remain
are your clear blue eyes shining
~ free from yesterday's pain.

Tomorrow beckons with a smile-
the breeze sings songs of freedom.
Let's hold our hands up to the sky
and bask in our new Eden.

Storm Claim this poet

~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~ NOTE: 5 Feb 2011 - Dear All, I have deleted and then reinstated all my poems on my page so I could get rid of the bad atmosphere, 1-ratings and nasty tags there have been of late. I know this means I won't be in the leaderboard but that's OK.I want to start anew and more importantly, see if the number of rates match the reviews. If poems continue to be 1-rated, then I will know that Ian is/was not the only one cheating here.I apologise to all those who have previously commented on my poems. I am sorry your comments are no longer there.I regret any inconvenience caused. Happy writing to all! :)~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~I am an enigma wrapped in a mystery ~ a flowerchild of the Universe. I am well travelled and love learning about different cultures.I have been writing poetry for 30 years, the last three of which I have written in earnest.I laugh my way through life and tears, searching for enlightenment. I don't suffer fools gladly.I am here to write, it is my passion. I am influenced by music, lyrics and the poetry of many people, too many to mention.I don't like pedestrian poetry or purple prose. I am never content with my poems, always striving to improve. I welcome critique. more…
