Of unwed dreams
And uncharted virtues
Of restless fingers
And moon-eyed detours
The present for more
Also for those who did realize I posted to Carbon Noise poetry

Excellent post. Photo is also very appropriate, and awesome.
Thank Samina =)
Great poem on a great topic. Good work!
Love it, and it’s perfect for the I age!! 🙂 🙂
Thank you for clarifying and thank you for the compliment I wondered if I had interpreted this oddly haha
That should say perfect for the image… LOL 🙂
Love the idea of “moon-eyed detours”. Beautiful poem! 🙂
Thanks Sonya =)
Hello Sonya, so nice to see you! 🙂
This is any older poem so I am afraid Sonya is still missing in so much as I know
Ah…I was so hoping that she’d at least begun to read again, sigh…I should have looked at the date. Thanks for letting me know.
I wish she had returned I really miss her and I have been quite worried
I know what you mean and I’ve written awhile back, but no answer.
I think she would have written if she could have that is what worries me most
Me too. I just hope she pulls through whatever is keeping her away. She was the highlight of each day for me and her writing is really superb. Yes, i agree that she would have written, not only her poems but she would have replied to my email as well as wh had in the past…
I hope she is well. She is immensely talented and always very kind and encouraging
🙂 I love how you even make destroying beauty beautiful “Desiccated dandelions”
lol thank you, you are first one to ever say that to me
🙂 Itis one of the many things I love about you 🙂
I loved your pic writing! Once again, trying to pick out a favourite part would be an insult to the greatness of the piece and emotion it carries.
Awww thank you sweetie!
‘a lifetime of unwed dreams’… very rich in imagery and so despondent. beautiful.
Thank you very much =)
Love both the words and the picture! Well done, Dear Friend!!
Thank you Skye! The image is fantastic =)

Magical thoughts dancing through my head as I read your words, but also such truth in every single line, you captured his whole right here, right now.
Thank you very much Karen =)
‘His mornings are antiquated’ – how fitting indeed!
Thank you so much Sara =)
Great poem. Love the wordiness 🙂
Thank you =)
Such wonderful heightened language, literal, yet completely not. I aspire to this.
Thank you so much that is so sweet =)
How is that poetry book coming along. I want a book of your writing. xoxo
My editor doesn’t seem to be done yet
Loved the poetry.
“His mornings / Are antiquated / Having neglected / The present for more / Hypothetical dives”
I think those lines will stay with me for while… wonderful… just wonderful! 🙂
Thank you very much Lettie =)
Lovely Yves, one must be careful not to neglect the present.
Indeed Michael but often we do get so caught up we forget what is right in front of us
So true, the most obvious is what we don’t see.
Lovely poem…and liked how you developed the idea of living the present!
Thank you so much =)
Great words, beautiful musings, loved: “moon-eyed detours.”
Thank you Brenda =)
