Once You Told Me - Poem by Judith Ann Kashuba

Once you told me, "Try to create with words
and sounds and hidden feelings."

You guided my hand on a white, spacious,
immaculate paper....and everything changed
into concrete shapes.

You showed me the way to creativity...and then,
you left me alone.

Alone in a marvelous world of fascinating shadows
yet...unclear in front of my blurred eyes.

Once you told me, "Try to create!"
and I picked up the raindrops-
and the red strands of the sunset-
and the crystalline music that once sounded
like a gentle water stream.

Now...
only one thing was mine,
one- only tear
irredescent
on my palm.

    Judith Ann Kashuba:

    I am so glad I came across your poem, 'once you told me'
    It stuck with me all nite long and these are the thoughts that
    I find you poem would mean if I was to write, these are for you
    to do as you so please;

    Dancing under Moonlite:
    Inspired by JudithAnn.

    When I dance under Moonlite my shadows dances
    too! .
    The moon, my shadow, it makes three.

    Alone in a marvelous world of facinating shadows,
    un-clear my blurred eyes, I begin to see.

    I try to creat words, sounds of hidden feelings
    that relate to me
