Moving On

Poem By Jo Lynn EhnesAllen

The bumpy road we traveled down
had reached a fork where dreams would split.
My fading smile produced a frown
as gloom arose from havoc's pit.

The right displayed a brighter path
illuming His eternal plan.
The left would lead us into wrath
where sin consumes the souls of man.

The choice was difficult to make;
enticed by life's seducing hand.
The evil path, my mate would take
no longer heeding my command.

Temptation's call would overthrow
the force which forged and joined our hearts.
Alone, I'm left with seeds to grow
and wond'ring why true love departs.

With courage I will carry on
while wiping tears from bitter eyes.
Renewing strength begins at dawn;
my reformed love will be the prize.

Love Is (Found) Is Love

Love
is found;
enraptured
are two, then shared

In Solitude

Alone, awaiting warmth to show,
I'm stroked by autumn's final breeze.
These vibrant branches once aglow
are now suppressed by time's disease.

Keeper Of The Key

Revealed unto my waiting soul;
the secret keeper of the key.
A tender touch unveils his role
as rings of love encompass me.

A Seasonal Affair

A frigid spell of arctic air
adorns this tranquil western scene;
a stunning glimpse of Fall's affair
with Spring's vivacious flower queen.

A Change Of Seasons

Autumnal winds caress my face
as summer's heated breeze expires.
The years have quickened in their pace,
foregoing my misplaced desires.

Don't Rewind

back in the deepest
recesses
(where no one wants to go)
inside a mind
