"For now we see through a glass darkly ..."


Love moves ever silently,
In grace wooing as a gentle light,
Reaching beyond all dark riffling shadows
Blended along random edges,

Love speaks softly,
And willingly, in wisdoms serenity
Steering the heartsick from their sorrows,
As a billowing wind filling sails

Love sates the heart,
In fullness of purpose drawing
Near when we hide wounded eyes and weep,
Love offers cool water in our struggles,

As the fires of life lessen,
Never forsaking us when our dying
Embers whiten; He strengthens us, with
Assurances that love remains eternal…

Words never so true, i miss my Thomas very much, but eternal love will dwell with me anyways.

Richard,
This is tender and inspiring. I like the imagery you created along the way, too, especially the embers in the last verse. That image stuck with me. Great writing. Hugs,
Sheila

"...drawing/Near when we hide wounded eyes and weep,/ I value the nurture nature of awareness in these lines. This defines such vulnerability. I also like, "Never forsaking us when our dying/Embers whiten;/" What a novel way to express this stage of life.

Underlying the wisdom of your poem is the oft times ignored value of "respect" in allowing love to flourish. And... what a photo you've posted to remind us.
Reviewed by Michael Hollingsworth 2/12/2012
Eternal indeed! His love is the only perfect love. A quote of mine: "Human love is to devote a part of ourselves to the providence of another existence. To be without this devotion is to be void of love."

Richard Your talent is boundless. Thank you for sharing.

Sir Richard the Invincible

Beautiful and self fulfilling words that aptly describe the mystery and magnificence of love eternal.You touch a spot with velvet assuredness that not many of us ever reach or realize.

Never let your quill run dry my friend or the world will become a darker place without your gracious presence.

Onwards and upwards

Love comes in many sizes, shapes and forms but ALL love remains forever. (I especially like the picture you've chosen for these words.)

Reviewed by Kate Burnside 1/30/2012
Quite simply, love never fails - at least, not the love you speak of here. It is unquenchable and irresistible. It's what makes the jigsaw puzzle of our lives complete and erodes the edges between all the myriad pieces, bringing the whole into totality. The stillness and purity inherent in your final stanza is both satisfying and intensely moving. Bless you, Richard LC xx

Sad and beautiful Richard. I especially love the ending "He strengthens us, with
Assurances that love remains forever…"

I'm in shell shock
Blown apart
This poem really touches the heart
Heard a wise man say
"One day
Hope and faith will fade away
But CHARITY will always stay."

Amazing poetry Richard

U speak of love like a soothsayer with great knowledge to impart to those of us less fortunates who were at the end of the line when God handed out brains...;-) e

Reviewed by RWE SAYS BYE 1/29/2012
I like the way your poem progresses from darker images, airy images, liquid images to images of fading flames... this progression shows the idea of gradations of love as well as giving a sense of its durable, adaptable nature. This is a fine poem, full of meaning, wisdom and simple understated eloquence... excellent work, richard...

Be well and at peace with all those you meet.

Roger
