Friday 55 (plus some extra)

Before I say anything else, I'd like to thank all those who left condolences for my cousin Lisa. She is with her mom right now and not hooked up to the net but I spoke to her and let her know about all the well-wishes. She was very appreciative of the kindness expressed by so many of you and will read the comments when she returns. Thanks for taking the time to do so. It lifted a grieving heart. Peace to each of you. Love you, cuz. Big hugs and a soft shoulder any time you need it.




Ok, It's Friday and my contribution to Friday 55 is more than 55 words. It's poetry of questionable quality, not fiction of equally debatable merit. You'll live. Just deal with it, ok??




starmoon



He watches his far away mistress, the moon.
Her soft light gives hope in the night.
Ever his
Yet never to be reached.

She reaches for her falling star lover
His bright glory rains wishes in the dark.
Ever hers
Yet never to be grasped.

Beheld together by lovers below
The mistress moon
And king of stars
Ever roam
Yet never meet.
