A Special Occasion

Poem By Almedia Knight Oliver

While observing the gathering guest
and remembering eleven years past, when
She made her first debut on the world stage.
Wearing a soft juicy peach birth-day dress;
silk light brown threads capped her tiny head;
those little pink feet bicycling
as if readying to lead.

On this eve looking out on the mist
hovering the Hudson River, even daylight
couldn't clear the huddled clouds nor
the thick mist holding onto its place.
Everyone slowly crowded the hall
to await the second coming.

Heads turn toward a refreshed face
strolling down the aisle adorning
a pale blue gown
free-swinging
about her ankle.
A radiant beauty and
grace unparalling all...

grandma watches her
beautiful Junior Debutante
in delight!

Comments about A Special Occasion

‘Grandma watches in delight-‘ it is bottomline of poetry…because joyous wheeling back always tickling nostalgia …vicarious delight Grandma may be subconsciously regurgitating… Thanks Ma’am for sharing… Ms. Nivedita UK 10/10
Beautiful poetic picture of a most special occasion.
Down the aisle she strolls Adorning a pale blue gown That flails around her ankle. Her radiance and beauty unparallel others Grandma just stares at the Junior Debutante..envisioning and recollecting the past is something one longs inthe life...beautiful theme....10 read mine.............innocence regained....
really a fantastic poem visualizing the past 2006.........recaptivating down the memoirs............

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

Evening's Solitude

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

The Power Of Love

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

A Loving Partner

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-
