    I am new and I have read some of what you all posted as far as the unofficial rules. Here is one of my pieces I wrote I hope you enjoy.


    Distant Love

    He is like a vague dream
    a distant memory that creeps up now and again.
    His voice is like a whisper that you hear on the wind.
    His eyes appear in the clouds and follow me on a sunny day.
    And at night he winks at me with the stars.
    In my mind's eye I see places and faces that all relive the moments that were shared.
    And yet I can't quite speak his name.
    It is like the word that is on the tip of my tongue that I can't quite remember.
    But my heart beats in recognition of his invisible presence.
    My body reacts to his feathery kisses that the summer rain drops place on my neck .
    It seems that I must have loved him in another life.
    And I long to revisit this love that has stirred me so deeply that it envelopes my living.
    And yet I know that it is impossible so I mourn for the love I will never realize in this life time.
