Fay Slimm

(Ageless. / in Cornwall U.K.)

A Windowpane Wait.

Windy grey day blowing blue veins of rain.
My windowpane-heart starts to weep, lonely
For you. Then change of direction, and same
Window is floating with buds of unknown
Pink flowered hue. Is it bringing more news
Perhaps of us two? Discerning connections
I watch for sensation, 'though refusing
To believe you are gone. Now yellows reflect
A summertime-bright flash on my pane, love's
Explosion brings flames of warmth, and at last
You arrive. My window swings wide then 'bove
Dark mists, lights with blazoning sun, gasping
As whispered, long waited messages start,
I run to your arms, and melt in your heart.

    You use the emotional weight of color (grey, pink and summertime yellow) to great effect in this fascinating poem about waiting and longing and joining together. Some fine original images too - 'blue veins of rain' and 'windowpane heart'. Love, Allie ♥ ♥ ♥ ♥ (Report) Reply

    Suberb imagery. Exquisite, Fay. You are indeed a poet worthy of the name.

    Always your friend,

    Sublime is right. Fay, I told you before, there is love in them thar' souls.

    If there is ever any doubt in your mind, think of the Sound of Music's 'she's got it'

    A brilliant look at life throught the windowpane, I felt as though I was waiting with you,

    Fay, this is simply sublime...I actually felt the chill at the beginning being chased by the heat at the end...wonderful (Report) Reply

poet Dante Gabriel Rossetti

Young Love lies sleeping
In May-time of the year,
Among the lilies,
Lapped in the tender light:
White lambs come grazing,
White doves come building there:
