Poem -



How can I describe
The reflection of you in every star
Or dream I see
A winsome look into
The delicacies of raindrops
And their pristine purity...

I can find you there
Between the drops
A marvelous minuet
With seventeenth century pleasure
The merriment...

Of love's inevitable
Trials and tribulations
Leading to rose-colored brooks
That wind their way through
Loving kisses
And wishes
Through longing looks...

From angelic places
And Davinci faces
That are but reflections of you
And your subtle features
Universally described
As Empyrean Views...

Seen through the eyes
Of fairy tale princes
And the holiest of men
Praying for your love
To engulf them
And enchant them
All over again...

For in the eyes
Of divine implication
Yours is the bloom of perfection
An alabaster ballerina
On the spinning wheel
Of a carousel's rotation...

So graceful that
The entire world stops to cheer
And pay homage to you
For the endless hours
On your labor of love
So inventively, precisely, produced...

So when the wind blows
And your essence glows
Like an orchestral maneuver
My heart drums a beat
And my love's incomplete
Without the ability to touch you...

For I am shot from a cannon
Of your delicacy
And soar
On the wings
Of your attention...

For: Cherie (On our 1st Anniversary)

Hey T....I cannot believe a year has gone by already since that beautiful day on the shore of Lake Norman when we said our vows as the subtle waves lapped in.  It is so hard for me to read your romantic poetry without blushing, because I have such a surreal feeling of how you portray me through your eyes, and in such a lovely way that touches me.  This is really beautiful!  Thank you!  This is such a gorgeous write.  What woman would not be moved by such romantic flattering words?  Wow!  Thank you for being so attentive and caring today....I love you. xo ;)  


A beautiful poem Tony. Happy anniversary to you both.

Our Dear Tony,

All our love and congratulations on yours and Cheries first Anniversary.  We just responded to her beautiful poem to you.  Now, we must try to send words that will make an attempt, to portray the beauty that you have created in your unbelievable tribute to her.

"Empyrean" is how he describes her
His gift from God above
Who reunited him with his dear Soulmate
To ever share pure love

She has brought him to Nirvana
Her perfection unparalleled
She has taken him to Paradise
And delivered him from Hell

All my love,
Larry xxx

You (my dear Friend) are one who is In, of, and Beyond
His Time. You have your own voice which is like an echo
of the Past making amends with itself, and planning a better
future. Not only for yourself, but for a fledgling world which will
know you soon. (and likely evolve in the process because of

great work man.
