The Splendor

I'm a writer, a poet, a dreamer. Born and raised in New York City. I now live in Daytona Beach, Florida with my wonderful cat Sid.


The beauty and the splendor,

of majestic mountains,


and makes my heart and soul sing.

It is there that I can climb up high,

to be nearer to you my love,

in your heavenly home.

I can hear the wind whisper your name to me

and the mountain echoes my joy –

being closer to you.

Deep down in a lush valley,

a river flows,

sourced from a waterfall,

gushing down from above.

There by the pool.

I throw flowers in,

each one like a lovely natural boat bobs,

down the river, they go,

hoping to send greetings to you,

when out to the sea they float.

Down by the sea,

the golden sand sparkles,

the gulls fly through the skies,

the breezes blow all around,

reminding me of our days in the sun.

Seashells play music,

from other shores,

the wind caresses my cheek,

I hear your voice so clear –

as I blow kisses up toward the heavens above.

This beauty and splendor always inspires,

I know love is eternal.

Someday there’ll be a bridge to cross,

where you’ll reach out your hand to me –

together forever we’ll be.

The bridge of love is always there...and you have captured it beautifully!

Rasma, I think this is one of my favorites. I especially like the line "seashells play music from other shores". What poetry!

One day you and your love will be reunited. Until then, he speaks to you from Nature's splendor.

This is so very beautiful. A true love never ends. Knowing you'll be together throughout eternity is heavenly.

This poem beautifully paints a picture of nature and love, yet there is some sadness as you wait for his hand.
