"Self Portraits"

Our creator planned it well
Choosing exactly what to do
For he used the same brush
To paint me and you

He started with a soft red
Then added wide strokes of blue
And finished with heart shades
That soaked us right through

He played music for our souls
While left in the sun to dry
Then sprinkled us with a love
That made the Angels cry

Then he spelled out the wisdom
Of how to hear the others heart
Saying, If you want a happy ending
This is the only way to start

Finally he called upon the wind
And sailed us separately down to Earth
Whispering, If you find each other
Your lives will become a new birth.


This was a Valentine poem I wrote for the love of my life..

My gift to all the young and old love sharing the day for lovers,

Thank you miss Nat -

Very kind words (sorry for your tears)
My heart is that of a poet, and my soul the palette I paint my words with.

Soon - I expect your words to grace this poetry contest

Poetry is something I've always been drawn to since I was a little girl. I keep a lil notebook in my purse or near me at all times cause sometimes just one line will come to my head and if I don't write it down, I will forget. Then I can go back to that line and sometimes more words come and sometimes nothing.. Which is fine.

And tears are good for the soul. My best friend who actually joined this site not too long ago... She always tells me, when I'm scared to cry, that I've gotta let my eyes rain in order to grow. I find that statement to be so true and it helps me to cry more when I don't want to.

Hopefully words will find their way into my mind and I can join this contest as well.
Take care
