Almedia Knight-Oliver Poems

Love is like a wild wind
Am I just a howling wildness?
or maybe a howling triumph!

In evening's solitude sipping a glass of wine, or
maybe two, and listening to Roberta's love songs
Being spirited away dizzily to dream land

Her First born that seems so long ago:

Peering into my mind
Look at what I see!

Early on: the radiance morning sun
infusing space and exposing me unbound
I lay beside him, marveling aura waltzing
behind my eyelids

We found each other under the evening sky
the moon sat directly over our heads and sent
tidal waves that made our hearts bulge with love.

Your friendship likens the sun-
it lights up the world

Your friendship likens a fruit-

She with child waged a fight
But baby won outright

Then she struggled with self

There they lay watching the rising sun.
No more can night see daylight
than the darkness hide her anymore.
Desiring a new beginning, as the old world

Red and white garlands draped the treasure chest.
They marched in tandem in the quietness of
The cathedral, offering up sorrowful
Tears to her crimson dressed body

My dear, every journey
Begins with one single step,
then another, they alternate
with each other, and the body

Here, here, here, Princess
My little puffball
My baby girl wants
a Christmas tree, yet

We found each other, hungry,
thirsty, and singed by love.
I'm charred by love again, then
you left this rapacious lioness

"Mother You have A Baby Boy" while laying
Seven pounds of flesh on my throbbing
heart, tears streaming down my face, drops
falling on his light brown hair, and the crease

Cloud and gloom hang low
Sunshine nowhere in sight
Herein lies autumn mood

Fourth Born

While they were carefully restoring

Man dressed in black
Holding high and tight
His scythe.
Teasing me

Time occupies her beauty
Few gaze upon her in awe
Age like a winter day, too,
a wilted flower in May

Joy, Joy, Joy

J oy-filled cornucopia that

</>How long,
should it matter
or is it just desire
out-living performance?


I was inspired to write "I Shall Dote Myself" Mother's Day, after noticing I had not received one card from my four (4) children! I thought, perhaps they cannot -after so many Mother's Days-find the words to express their sentiments. Her, my children, I shall dote myself:

The Best Poem Of Almedia Knight-Oliver

A Rush Of Wild Wind

Love is like a wild wind
Am I just a howling wildness?
or maybe a howling triumph!

Twirling and twisting into a knot
Ought I pull this way or not?
Head spinning, heart running,
and I'm following its path.

Oh sweet heart see the flowers
hanging over the picket fence,
five lovely petals crying
out for-get-me-not!
In the never-ending heaven hangs
as many shinning stars as angels!

Having slept nights alone
Desire crests, overflowing
waves over waves

Sitting alone on the riverbank
Pondering the long dive
Billows beckoning me to ride

Having no buds in waiting
can love bloom at any age?
Growing older against your junior-
wasn't well thought out
years between us are felt,
and distance to be dealt with
