My new piece, “Shadows” up at Free Verse Revolution.

My indecipherable shadow on that faraway beach. You talked to it.
I did not hear what you said because I wasn’t there. I was…

    1. Brad, I am really happy you think so. Thank you from the bottom of my heart for your great comment 🙏
      Have a splendid day. No disembodied shadows 🌞

    1. Thank you, Bo. Coming from you, the word “perfect” makes me happy. It really does.
      As for the inspiration that a grave can bring… I’ll leave that for another time.
      Plenty of love form me to B&Co.

  1. ok, I mean this in the most respectful way, the first thought that popped into my head was, “are you kidding me?!” I honestly have no idea how you do this……….truly amazing.

    1. Oh, Wendi, I know you will never disrespect anybody. I am really humbled by your comment. Thank you from the bottom of my heart.
      How do I do this? Honestly I am not sure. However, I would venture to say that there are moments when love burns so deep, that only the breath of death can save me from “death by love”; at least for a while 🙂
      Is that a paradox? There are multiple levels and reasons for which I do not think it is.
      Anyway, sweetheart, thank you again for your comment.
      Have a blessed day.

    1. And you are a fantastic friend, aren’t you? Thank you so much for your support Francisco. Even if I can’t reply on FVR’s site it means a lot to me you took the time to leave a comment there too. Yes, the beach and the cemetery; beautiful interpretation of both.
      On a different note, I am going to write to you this weekend. I hope you will agree to be my guest again. Please feel free to reply when you feel like. No pressures. No timelines.
      Wishing you a lovely day in Valencia.

      1. Bon día my friend and 😊 thank you 😊 I would be honoured to be your guest. It’s a very exciting proposition and I truly appreciate your invitation and your wonderful support. Thank you for the well wishes and I’ll say that yes, it is quite a lovely morning here in the Levant! Wishing you a beautiful American day!
        Abrazos mi amiga Gabriela,

  2. Oh. My. Goodness. And. Seriously. Gabriela!!!! This, this this! You never ever stop amazing me. The unease that this creates, I feel haunted by this misplaced shadow, taken on its drifting and arduous journey. I want to carry it and help it find what it’s looking for..soothe those puffy feet. The atmosphere and emotion here is utterly compelling. WOW!!!

    Everything G. I’m sending you everything xoxoxox

    1. You are really making my night gorgeous. You never stop making me happy.
      “I want to carry it and help it …” I know you do. Do you remember the little bird you took care of? Oh, how I love that story. I’ll never forget it. You heart is the sweetest heart in the entire world, Rachel.
      “I’m sending you everything..” Thank you.
      I am sending you love, hugs, flowers, chocolates, the best red, the sunshine, the moon, the stars and everything else.

      1. Now it’s your turn to be making my night truly gorgeous!! I needed that red to go with it 😉, and everything else too. I had Japanese for dinner though and I am so full, I ate too much. What kind of food is your favourite, I’m curious?

        Love and hugs xoxo.

      2. Oh, Japanese. That’s good, when it is a good place. What did you have?
        Italian. Italian. Italian. I am saying that because I want to make sure I’am covering all the regions of Italy (per the EU map 🙂 ).
        Love and hugs to you too my fabulous Rachel.

      3. If I’d been asked to guess I would have guessed your favourite to be Italian. I love Italian food too.. tomatoes, basil, garlic, mozzarella…. red wine. Who could not love this combination? As for Japanese, I had ramen with miso and tofu. It was amazing.

        I,ll get the food, while you write the poetry. We’ll both be happy ❤️😘. Sending everything xoxo

      4. No, we both write poetry and then take care of the food together.
        Have a great week ahead sweetheart.

    1. Thank you so much Rene. I am so thrilled you liked this poem. I hope you are staying safe sweetheart. Sending you lots of blessings and love.
