    Finding Me

    I will share with you my brokenness poignant her fledgling dawn, serenity held tween iron ribs acutely a fragile interlude cocoons unwind, unhinge, a collage brought of velveteen, deftly breathless blushing fields easy earth a rare pearl opalescent and a thimble half of stars
    Faith unwavering sagely fragrant, softly prudent, time unravelling, mesmerising, a morrow’s eloquence, jasmine blooms befallen
    Idyll reminisce the sweetness birdsong intrepidusly sows, dulcet tones woven intimate midst a love requited, conscious glee shalt entertain wakeful echoes beseeching empty boughs neath stained-glass panes
    Engaged intimately to a timeless paradox dreams swirl and stir a tawdry sullied broth
    Vibrant cyphers, cryptic solace
    Night and day poise resplendent
    swaying, slow dancing, gently hers
    Delve both hues ebony and black, exotic whites come tangerine
    Days sequential a jester's crown, forfeiting aces through knave till king each their other muted to an evocative mandala of handsome greys
    Stepping fearless her tearful heel, loyalty undefeated
    every step found resolute, forged infinite on stone
    Sweetly sung her promises, caught amongst the lyrical whimsy of darling chimes her cache of windswept pretty poetries to and fro, unequivocally an impassioned lover's tryst
    Her swiftly gentle reverie shyly musing time's quaint lullaby
    Regaling tales kind hither thy songster, minstrel and fine musician brandishing beautiful thine jangling tambourine with a magician's flurry of sprightly colours and a talisman of sterling stars
    Her longtime journaled prose and lyrics carefully scrolled and gently twined
    Cast devotion they transcend a trove of untold connotations stashed away somewhat lovelorn betwixt nectar, brambles, tall heather and heath
    Heartened beats gracefully harmonize every foregone truthfulness, art thee ploughed from grit and hallowed earth
    With mettle sound encrypted, wielding mortar and marble pestle a beloved starlet sadly grieves, lavender sprigs with heavy heart she bows her head to gently kneel
    Clasped hands murmur but a simple prayer laid solemnly bequeathed
    Breath billowing in a summer's rage, waning tempest caught by a wisp of silken sheath honouring wholly surrendering the wildly burden a caged hurricane ensues
    Spun fragments, ardent chords, variegated Autumn trill
    Melodic memories slightly singed, fraught benevolence, cloistered walls, twisted labyrinth, barefoot paths and bridges embrave the tangled dark
    Assuage her bevy of torrid gloom abode a plethora of fearsome phantoms
    Her lofty inspired pantomimes, giddy daydreaming and silly stories enough to chase away duelling beasts from shadow play
    Apologetic swilling streams yielding fractured sorrow
    Ivy thoughts meander back and forth, flute and fiddle waltz together vowed silence
    Fanciful she fondly paints patterned scars deeply etched beneath bare skin
    Indelible these count to seven, her seven stars, her seven tattooed sisters
    A fragile sigh survives pondering the fluent whisper of a wayward vagabond
    Hushed melodies and crescent lies drifting, stretching boundless constellations falling wistful to frequent crayoned conversation
    Each tomorrow wakes gilded exquisitely between her tender edges
    Elusively besotted, charmed by the night, captured soulful, bewitched, enchanted amid an artist's splendour
    With wings outstretched, unclipped, ornate
    Splayed here prettily for her halo lays
    Tips bleeding genteel tears of amethyst
    Brimming, glistening, shimmering an untamed avalanche
    Stillness adrift amidst unruly mindless clatter
    Melodious tides scooped up and held with quiet breath
    Empaths stargaze night's opulence her opened box brimming trinkets, studded light cradle threaded beads of topaz and gems of crystal, hearts eclipse both mystic moons
    Stardust rapturous in a snow globe storm doth the elegance of paper hearts persist
    Beneath quiet eyes of peridot, skipping stones and pirouettes
    Shades of authenticity rest on the rolling cusp of rising tides
    Petals orchid black bend lowly from a willow's crook
    Dance they may
    and dance they might
    dance with her in the twirling night
    A fallen penny sworn to peace cometh the unobtrusive humility of an organza sea
    Lost in folded ribbons beg aubergine, blind quietude be her calling, her unsung perpetual moonless love

    It is with many tears and a grieving heart I share my thoughts today. Recently hearing the news of Jack's passing it has saddened me greatly. He was humble and undoubtedly kind of heart, of strong faith and with sound integrity. I miss him as though the dawn might her morning birdsong, an empty sky devoid of colour and music. Prayers and love across the ocean to his Mom and family and dear friends. Jack was an inspiration to so many here, supporting new writers and encouraging everyone he was fortunate enough to read.

    This poem here was his very favourite of mine. He told me many times how it gave him peace and changed him in ways he couldn't explain and would go back to revisit and read it over again. Often he would direct other poets so they could enjoy it too. Countless conversations we had with much admiration and respect for each other and for the love and craft of poetry. He adored my style of free verse as I loved his way with words hence renowned as the much admired Haiku King.

    My darling Jack these words are eternally yours and I dearly hope they continue to bring you peace in the hereafter. In God's arms and my love, always your dearest Dale

    Presence

    Long after my last breath
    You will still hear my voice
    In my poetry
    Reaching out with my words
    Telling you I love you
    Nurturing your growth
    Encouraging with verse
    Cheering louder than the crowd

    A constance for your bright days and dark
    In every instance
    Seeing only the best of you
    Gripping your hand when you need it most
    Cradling when you stumble
    Buoying your spirits when desolate

    And when you feel
    the coolness of the breeze
    At your back in the eve
    Tis a whisper of hope for your every tomorrow

    That sweetness in the air
    Lingering for a moment
    teasing your senses without reason
    A reminder I am always here

    That swelling in your chest
    as the day dawns
    Abundance aboding in your heart
    This is the love I leave with you
    For always now
    And till always then

    I will share with you my brokenness
    Poignant as her fledgling dawn
    Faith comes softly fragrant perched once upon an early jasmine bloom
    Engaged intimately to a timeless paradox
    Dreams swirl and stir a tawdry sullied broth
    Ripples free, bleed unpretentious
    Vibrant cyphers, cryptic solace
    Night and day poise resplendent
    swaying, slow dancing, gently hers
    Delve both hues ebony and black, exotic whites come tangerine
    Days sequential a jester's crown, dealing aces through knave till king
    each their other muted to an evocative mandala of handsome greys
    Stepping fearless her tearful heel, loyalty steadfast

    Stashed away somewhat forlorn betwixt nectar, brambles, tall heather and heath
    Heartened beats gracefully harmonize every foregone truthfulness, art thee ploughed from grit and hallowed earth
    With mettle sound, once encrypted, wielding mortar and marble pestle she bows to bended knees
    Clasped hands murmur but a single prayer left solemnly bequeathed
    Breath billowing in a summer's rage
    Waning tempest caught by a wisp of silken sheath
    Spun fragments, wistful chords, veriegated Autumn trill
    Melodic memories slightly singed her fraught benevolence
    Apologetic swilling streams yielding fractured sorrow
