Unrequited Love

Poem By Ann Murrell

I reached out to touch you with words soft and entreating,
So close I felt that you could hear how fast my heart was beating.
The setting sun had rendez vous with twilights early gleam and slowly
intermingled to form a golden beam that shone warm through the window, clothing
us in its light, Now was the time to ask you, now the time was right!
I touched you gently, "How do you feel", Me dear, "You are the best".
"I want to share with you my joy the happiness in my life , I've finally asked
the one I love, today to be my wife"
My heartbeat slowed, my senses swirled, and I could barely see,
Through trembling lips I wished him joy, with his bride- to -be.

The Rainbow

My spirit was low, my body felt tense and dry, Relentlessly, unceasing rain pured from the sky like a faucet left untended, opened to full strength making muddy puddles across the back yards length
Then suddenly, the downpour stopped, In the west began to form an arc of may
colors, bright and clear and warm, my spirit rose, my body relaxed and thoughts
began to flow. A promise given to mankind many centuries ago, Never again

I Need Love

What the sun is to the flower,
nurturing it to grow,
What rain does for new grass seed,
with its warm persistent flow,
