One Shot Wednesday....


.

.

To hold her hand
To smell her hair
To feel her touch
But, she's NOT there...

I hear her breathe
I hear her scream
I hear her laugh
Is she a dream?

You hope against hope,
That it's Not foolish to feel...
...that one day you'll discover
The illusion is REAL!

.

.
Have some poetry or prose that you have written?
Post it on your blog, then please go visit One Shot Wednesday
Presented by the Very talented crew over at One Stop Poetry!
You'll be glad you did.
Peace...!!!

G-Man

You are a versatile soul. Beautifully written from your heart. There is a longing and a bit of sadness in your poetic voice. I hope she returns.

Hard sometimes to separate dream from waking.

Any more news on the move to Turkey? I was there a couple of years ago - Istanbul is pretty amazing.

Getting to know you
Getting to know all about you.....

Mr G-Man, what a pleasant surprise! (I knew all along you were a romantic dreamer...and so did everyone else. We just kept it a secret from YOU!)

Dear man, this was a Good Shot!

Thanks one last time for the privilege of hosting while you were playing possum.

Hope it was a great trip.

ok, we know you are a poet,
where is the naturalist and photographer of the wilderness you braved,
