Warren is a long-time member Fanstory who loves the challenge of rhymed and metered poetry. He loves to write sonnets, quatrains, and all the longer traditional forms of poetry. He is not a fan of the short forms, which are so prevalent on FS tod - more...

The Seal of Quality committee has rewarded him with 2 seals.

Portfolio | Become A Fan
I feel you in the waves that break,
unfolding gently by the scores.
Forever will each rippled wake
arrive from distant shining shores.

As dusk unrolls her amber skies
my steps pursue your constant rush.
I close my eyes to lay with you,
immersed inside the growing hush.

Surrendered to the silent swells,
on cresting caps of memory,
I wish the waves would wash aground,
and roll me out upon the sea.

Amidst the solitude of night
I feel your life still lives within.
But every breath I'd sacrifice,
to bring you back from Heaven's whim.

As dawn arrives to light the sky,
the surging tide has rushed away.
I'm grateful for the grace of light
to guide me through each golden day.


Earned A Seal Of Quality

The book continues with Peace In The Stars. We will provide a link to it when you review this below.

Author Notes
a,b,c,b rhyming in iambic tetrameter (8 syllables per line)

Inspiration gathered from a song by Barry Manilow entitled "Lay Me Down" in 1975. A little known song that I always felt was one of his best and has stayed with me for all these years. Thank you for reading and reviewing. Happy Mothers Day to all the mom's out there. Enjoy the day!
