Bonnie Collins Poems

Happy Birthday to someone who
is celebrating it very soon

If I could send a bouquet of

Wandering alone in this empty
forest of darkness, stumbling
and falling as I go wondering
if the darkness now will be

When the parting comes to view
and it is apparent that now all
is said and done, why is it that
there is such a need to forget

Did you ever look inside a sea
shell, and see the beauty, then
magicly hold it to your ear,
and how you can hear the

Watching your face, and looking
at you while you are napping, eye
glasses proped down to your nose
with book in hand where the last

Take me back in time
Open my timeless capsule of
your soul

Tides came and washed away
the empitiness inside my vacant
heart, the waves came with a thrash
and washed all the remains only leaving

Encaptured in my mind still stands
the moment of the time when our
hearts were young and painted
with all the colours of youth

Searching in the darkeness of the
hidden walls of your heart, are the
memories that have grown to haunt
you as days now have become decades

Freshly fallen winters virgin snow
casting small white particles of
angel dust against the pane of
my broken heart

As I walked passed you today
as we accidentaly ran into one
another, made a feeling inside
of me, feel like time had stood still

When the fullest of the moons shine so
brightly is trully when I look up and wonder
how many moons have been and gone

Stollen moments in the night as
the kaddie dids were singing
We danced to their music

Tides have rushed in and taken
the time that was given to us, it
marched in and captured the very
epitomy of our souls, and left us

Did you ever stop and listen to
the rain fall, or listen to the sound
of the summers gentle wind blowing
against your window

Wispering pines and weaping willows
all hold the secret to my soul, as they
were the first to know of the night
we first kissed, we first held each

Looking in my old room, cleaning out
the house after my mother entered her
final rest, as I looked at the walls that
once knew every secret in my tender heart

Enchanting days of bliss are
the one commodity that still lingers
within my shadow wherever I go

Home is where your heart lies
even if it is not a palace of
glittering golden staircase
bronzed with the ivory of

Forty years of bliss and non bliss how do
you ever try to marinate all the non harmony
moments, to tenderize its foundation

Bonnie Collins Biography

I am married, with one daughter and 3 grandsons who are the light of my life. I enjoy writting, my personal writtings, essays, and just plain THUOUGHTS OF THE DAY, Chicken soup for the soul kind of therapy. I enjoy the writtings of Sara Teasdale, some of Emily Dickinson, not all, some. I really have no favorites, as the talant of a writter in my oppion, is what the indivdual person preceives it to be. I love life, and the simple things in life. Still living in New York area and looking forward someday to move to Fla to be near our daughter. I really dont have any special hobbies, I enjoy gardening, I love flowers, and tending to them, like writting a sonet....)

The Best Poem Of Bonnie Collins

A Birthday Wish For Our Own Robert Frost

Happy Birthday to someone who
is celebrating it very soon

If I could send a bouquet of
sunshine, I would, however
this wish from my heart will
have to do

The enjoyment you have
given us through your tender
words of natures crest
and fill our hearts with happiness
at the same moment can take
a small item, a lonely accorn and
transform its life to the fallen ground

All of nature comes through your eyes,
and shows throughout your heart,
so on this day comming forth on
the new year, may I say Happy Birthday

Written for one of our special Poets...
