Spirits in Heaven


 

Tomorrow as beginning -- a future untold

creation of wonderment -- their lives' to share

Pledged in heart -- spirits entwined

forward with dreams -- love always there

 

Suns each in rise -- bringing days to years

untouched by  time -- endearments strong

Forever beside -- with clasp of hands

each giving all -- carrying them along

 

Wake of moons -- cast by night

eyes that witness -- which heaven bears

Ones who follow -- mirrors of souls

shadows to self -- the future's heirs

 

Babes in cradle -- teetered for while

bundles of wonder -- making the home

Past now gone -- memories shine on

parted the children -- own roads to roam

 

Tomorrow as beginning -- a future untold

filled with wonderment -- lives to share

One to other -- pledged by hearts

forward their dreams -- love always there

 

Together in age-- final memories fade

sun to rise - brings last goodbyes

On  wakened  moon -- a haloed  light

both dreaming forever-- through angel's eyes

 

Mother to children -- eternal through time

father as always -- strength in kind

Arms of comfort -- a whisper away

looking toward Heaven -- their spirits you'll find

Thank you ever so much. After viewing an old photograph of my grandparents I just closed my eyes and imagined. This was the outcome.

Wow! I read tis amazing poem

Wow! I read tis amazing poem in three different ways and it all still flowed beautifully! 

 

first I read it the right side going down like this:

(yeah I'm crazy like that I guess I'm just too curious to find some hidden anomalies) 

 

 

 -- a future untold

-- their lives' to share

 -- spirits entwined

 -- love always there

 

 -- bringing days to years

 -- endearments strong

 -- with clasp of hands

 -- carrying them along

 

-- cast by night

 -- which heaven bears

 -- mirrors of souls

-- the future's heirs

 

-- teetered for while

 -- making the home

-- memories shine on

 -- own roads to roam

 

 -- a future untold

 -- lives to share

 -- pledged by hearts

 -- love always there

 

-- final memories fade

 -- brings last goodbyes

 -- a haloed  light

-- through angel's eyes

 

 -- eternal through time

-- strength in kind

-- a whisper away

 -- their spirits you'll find


Then I read it like this left side down 

 

Tomorrow as beginning -- 

creation of wonderment -- 

Pledged in heart -- 

forward with dreams -- 

 

Suns each in rise -- 

untouched by  time -- 

Forever beside -- 

each giving all -- 

 

Wake of moons -- 

eyes that witness -- 

Ones who follow -- 

shadows to self -- 

 

Babes in cradle -- 

bundles of wonder -- 

Past now gone -- 

parted the children -- 

 

Tomorrow as beginning -- 

filled with wonderment -- 

One to other -- 

forward their dreams -- 

 

Together in age-- 

sun to rise - 

On  wakened  moon -- 

both dreaming forever-- 

 

Mother to children -- 

father as always -- 

Arms of comfort -- 

looking toward Heaven --

Usually when I write I pay

Usually when I write I pay attention to the measure of syllables in a sentence to keep things somewhat in sync. On this piece I wanted the rhythm to be fairly consistent throughout, so I chose my wording a bit more carefully.

 

Thank you for noticing. I'm glad you enjoyed one of my handful of words.

What a lovely ode

What a lovely ode !! But somehow your skull and rose doesn't attract readers.... You ARE a decent person. Crush the skull and keep the flower. Its your option. Just a friendly suggestion.Please ignore.

Thank you for the nice

Thank you for the nice comment.  As for the skull and rose, I think it rightly symbolizes my perspective on life. A rose and skull--for thoughts of beauty and the macabre.
