The Way We Were by Goff James

Through our eyes you will see
Through our ears you will hear

Through our thoughts you will dream

Through your feet we will walk
Through your blood we will bleed

Through our yesterdays you will see our deeds
Through our todays you will see our truths

Through our days you will see us just as one in unison
Through our nights you will see us as once we were

Through your dusk’s we will remember joy’s blessed fragrance
Through your nights we will feel the moon and stars

Upon our tombstone you’ll see writ

Anita Bacha

Every moment is a day
Every day is a moment
Life brings joy et al
and its share of downfall
Life is empty
without its spontaneity
As we grow old
our perspectives evolve
Autumn’s rose petals fall
for spring buds to sprout
Life doesn’t mean to possess
life means to let go

Why ask the rose?

From the bud to the sparkling full bloom

From the full bloom to the withering rose, the rose tells her story

Each stage of our life has a story to tell similar to the rose

Fervor of first kiss

Innocent as a mistake

Blush of a pink rose

Ardor of first crush

Burning fire rising to flame

Whiff of a red rose

A single pink rose

In my lone winter garden

Rich with love fragrance

Wanting to flower

Like the morning rose

Living life anew

A burnt orange rose

Pressed between crumbling pages

BLUE GRASS – A Poem by Anita Bacha

Anita Bacha

Today the sky is deep green,
The grass is sapphire blue,
I walk up the heath,
To say a last farewell to you,
A well kept secret is this flower,
That didn’t bloom in the blue grass,
Yet its sweet fragrance will linger,
As far as memories will last.
