Love's Patient Joy

Love's Patient Joy

She kneels by the sky's benighted reminder
Its paler moonlight should shine much kinder
She prays for the sun to brighten the night
Cause the stars to realign, marred by dark sight

For she longs for a day of security
Where his eyes comprise her safe place to be
And complications fall away with the stars
As their hearts pulsate energy of quasars

Love gives no distracting refracted reason
Why it abides in time, through each season
It simply knows its place in stubborn stance
Taking affection's hand in accepted dance
Β 
So, instinctively, she knows to wait it out
Even as the storms of life thrash about
He is the promise of love's silkscreen sky
An unfinished picture where the paint can't lieΒ 

Let there be a day without threat of nightfall
When stars shine with the sun in love's sweet callΒ 
Proving a conquering spirit in faithful stay
And problems part the sky and fade away

She kneels, once again, with one lasting plea
To never take for granted his company
Storms may advance but never stand a chance
To destroy the patient joy of true romanceΒ

Hi Greg. Thank you. I am glad you liked it.
I am at the end of season 1 of "Medici," but I may not get to watch it until later this week because I have a lot going on with my kids, but I like it too, and it has much that I can learn for writing my book set in the Renaissance period. I agree that "Medici" is confusing to know who to feel compassion for and who to trust to like or dislike...lol...I keep seeing such betrayals within the family...Thanks for telling me about it. ;)Β  xo

Thank you, Jill. Sometimes we wait for miracles to happen in love..like the night allowing the sun to shine and scatter the stars....for that patient joy. I appreciate your support. xo Love n Hugs

Hi Cherie you're welcome 😘...I just love the emphasis on moon, stars, sun etc in writing and I loved the underlying meaning to - a unfinished painting - to emphasise this true story is still developing...

Pre-comment Interjection:Β 
Cheerie, I rhyme in my sleep! I can't write without rhyming either! Even my spreadsheets have to rhyme! So, sometimes the numbers come out all wrong because of the rhyming thing! lol. For instance, here's a cell formula: Nine plus eleven equals six plus SEVEN! See? I had to rhyme the eleven, so I put seven, even though it doesn't equal! It should be two, but it doesn't rhyme!(I think it should be two, I'm not very good at math either). Anyway, it's OK for you to rhyme, you do it beautifully.Β

Lol...You are funny, Matthew. If I was forced to do math, I would always end up rhyming too. You are lucky that you are both right and left brained, and can do both equally well....I justΒ  hang all on the right side of my brain..and shake and shiver if a number comes anywhere near me...lolΒ  I just wrote a poem that I am getting ready to post, that is freestyle, but it still has some rhymes in there and alliteration...I just can't help it!Β  Oh well....at least it is not a formulated rhyme scheme. I guess we stick to what is our comfort zone.Β  ;) xoΒ  Love n HugsΒ

OK, Jillian Jr., stop writing so quickly! I haven't even had time to comment on this beautiful poem, and now I have another to assess gorgeous beauty upon??!! Did you take a Jill Speed Poetry Writing class? No fair. As far as the two halves of my brain, I actually don't have either(I had to have my brain removed as a youngster because I contracted mange. However, I'm still able to function in life, as I had an Alexa installed inside there(my cranium). It works pretty well, except when I go out with my friends, one of which name's is Alexa, then it gets really confusing. OK, I've written 2 comments on here, and haven't commented on your poem yet! Soon, I promise. It's lovely...like you.Β

Lol...Well, that explains a lot.Β  Does the Alexa in your head play music too?Β  That would be a nice feature. I bet it would get confused if you have a friend named Alexa.Β  My poem is not going anywhere, so take your time. I already posted another one just to keep you further behind. ;) xoΒ
