Far and Away




Far and Away


Stars exchange glances

moonlight pales
and I think of you
a distant echo
another realm

with me
nowhere to be found.

Jo, this makes me think of my friend, so very far away, in India. Such beautiful poetry.

the picture is astonishing...it feels like within your grasp and yet it is not, hence the poem explained.

i wonder if you create the poem after the image or the image after the poem?

I am wordless to explain the feeling about your lines of words.

Love the image and it fits the poem perfectly. Funny I should see this today, because that's sort of how I'm feeling right now.
Carmen, I thought of you while writing it and knew it would stir those feelings. You'll be seeing him soon...

eng, I actually wrote the poem then decided I wanted a photo to accompany the poem on the post so I rummaged through my photos and found the rose. I edited the picture and added the stars to fit with the poem. Thanks so much for your words.

Angel, your blog is often an inspiration to me and I thank you for sharing with all of us. You have a wonderful weekend as well.
Ann, Ah, then you were meant to visit. Thank you so much for your kind words and compliments.

Rainfield, You are speechless ? Wow ! :) Thank you.

I like this picture and the poem written to match. Space has always facinated me and I like to gaze at it, whether from the night skies or from inspirational pictures like yours. You are truly a poetic shutterbug!

Same here. I feel the urge to reconnect with my long lost friends that are so far in other lands....

It's beautiful! I suddenly missed my siblings who are both in the US.

Thanks for stopping over. Hope you have a fun weekend.

A very haunting piece that leaves the reader with an ache of urgent longing. Beautiful.

I can remember days that I felt that way. What a brilliant but melancholy verse.
So sad but beautifully written and eloquent.
