Southern Cross

Someone commented, wondering if I wrote the last poem. I write everything that is posted here and if I don't I will give credit to the author. The last poem actually happened. I did learn to swim in Wales at the base of a broken down castle. I used the swimmies as well. We had gone to Wales with another family and because my father was called away, he was in the Air Force, he was unable to come. My mother was there to encourage as it says. The house we stayed was a Roman stable that had been converted to a cottage. The only "license" taken was the year it took place. Needed the rhyme........

Southern Cross

They met in an unusual way,
Two worlds apart, didn't sway.

The feelings that grew between,
Tried to resist, but soon seen.

No one knows when they will find,
The love that happens, one of a kind.

Unfullfilled, not unrequited,
Wishing for more, to be united.

Time will tell what is in store
For these two, who dream of more.

Do the stars decide the fate?
Of how long the lovers have to wait.

The touch, the hugs they miss
Under the Southern Cross their first kiss
dedicated to a couple I know.

That's a beautiful poem. I liked the lines - "Unfullfilled, not unrequited,
Wishing for more, to be united.

Time will tell what is in store
For these two, who dream of more. "

Very well written!

Funny someone would ask you if you wrote the poem since it clearly states that you did in the first sentence of your post. Oh well, either they weren't paying attention or they have no idea how awesome you are:)! Nice work!

Sophia's Mom said...

what a beautiful poem!
You are so talented!

is it the vodka or does it come naturally? ;-P

Theta Mom said...

I love your poems, and I am cracking up right now reading Sophia's Mom's last commment! LOL

Vodka Logic said...

In most cases I would like to think it came naturally. but there have been some vodka induced poems before..... funny Sophie.

It was pretty "epic" living in the UK when i was I look back on it. Was just the way it was then.

And MiMi no gators or dragons etc in Wales. They were all slain years ago by the knights..

I do appreciate all the comments and the fact I might inspire or move someone really makes happy. Sounds corny but it is true. It is very humbling to think people actually like the poems.

Blogging for the most part is easy but the poems come from a different place. Thank you all for reading.
