I Feel Creative Today


You Are So Far Away

How can I touch you

Reach in and grab you

Maybe I should try using a more gentle approach

I slight tap on your shoulder

A light whisper in your ear

A gentle hello my dear

It is so nice to see you

I can't believe it has been so long since last time we spoke

You are looking good

Your shirt complements your soft blue eyes

Hidden behind the dark sunglasses

How have you been ?

I have been fine and the weather is getting nicer and nicer

This is my favorite time of the year

A little bit warmer with an afternoon breeze

I won't keep you any longer

I know you probably have a thousand things to do

It's my day off today

So I tend to get carried away

I have no plans

Just off to enjoy the day

Maybe take in a movie

I heard you like movies

No let me correct that

I heard you live and die for movies

Movies are truly something special

They capture our dreams on the big screen

I could get easily hooked

Then I would never get any writing done

I am happy to know a movie buff

Who can not only talk about the movie

She gives me the deep meaning

Sees things that I have missed

Tells me the Hollywood stars who played so many different roles

Rates the movie by the critics

From the biggest blockbusters to the unexpected flops

Then gives her honest opinion

I think about many things in my writings

Coffee Queen comes to mind

In far away England

Louise Powles sitting for hours

Twirling your long blonde hair

A person who loves a good plot

Is looking for the twist in the story

Has tears in her eyes on the sad scenes

Heart pounding in a passionate love story

Loves a good jaw dropper

As well as the classic happy ending

Take the mystery and the suspense

Gritting your teeth and holding on to the edge of your seat

Powerful documentaries who tell it like it is

In between the dramas and the good family humor

I can see you watching

Absorbing each movie like one great big sponge

Looking for the villain

Rooting for the underdog

Heart broken in tragedy

Coming back time and time again

Pass the popcorn and my drink please

Hurry, hurry

The movie is about to start

I know you don't want to miss one word

From the previews to the ending credits

Thank you again

For being a lovely friend

Chitrangada Sharan I am glad you enjoyed my stoem story/poem. So many people make a difference in our lives. Some we try to tell others we think they know. If we work really hard and keep trying to show how special all the people in our lives are we would have no time to dislike, hate or be angry at anything. Thank you so much for making my day extra special with such beautiful praise. I hope you also have a fabulous weekend. As always happy writing.

Gypsy Rose Lee It is so nice to feel your comments. They keep me writing so one day I might be able to do what you did by putting your poems in a book. Your dedication and your love for poetry both are starting to pay off. I am pleased to see you following your dreams. I love good news in spurts because it shows me how the process works. Thank you so much for sharing and caring. I have to work but I am sure this Memorial Day weekend will turn out just fine. Have a great day.

Wonderful poetic thoughts. Hey, more good news. Not very much yet of course, but I got a notice from Amazon that some proceeds from my book are heading into my account. Makes all the hard work worthwhile. Hope you and yours have a wonderful Memorial Day weekend.
