TRIBUTE TO LEONARD

TRIBUTE TO LEONARD

You were never a Vulcan
But an extraordinary human

Now you've gone

To where no man has returned
New pilgrim in other dimensions
Seeking new plains of existence
“Live long and prosper”
My childhood friend

LEONARD NIMOY

Born: Mar 26, 1931 • Boston, Massachusetts
Died: Feb 27, 2015
Leonard Nimoy was known for his acting.  Particularly for his role as the unemotional Spock.  But what many people don’t know that Nimoy was a student, and a writer, of poetry.  He was also a skilled narrator of other’s poetic works. What is interesting is the poet, unlike his famous character Spock, was skilled at describing a prism of different colored human emotions.
“Live long and prosper.”

Pictures of You
By Leonard Nimoy

You’re surrounded by pictures of you.
 Here you are so young and handsome
 Here you are with a wife or two
 Here you are, so happy and then some
 Surrounded by pictures of you.

Your walls are covered
 No more space
 Too bad, you’re such a pretty face
 And so adored
 Do you ever get bored
 Looking at pictures of you ?

You’re hit with a spotlight from above
 Your fans are screaming words of love
 You’re always so busy
 Don’t you get dizzy
 Looking at pictures of you ?

(Want to venture a guess as to who, this poem was dedicated too?)

Thanks for sharing, Kimmy.  I sad loss.  I respect the poet in Leonard Nimoy.  He was a versatile actor and philosopher.  Star Trek will always be his claim to fame.  Nice tribute.  xox C

Great write Kimmy, tribute to a legend in Leonard Nimoy, yeah he was a poet and did some singing; if I'm not mistaken; the one and only Mr. Spock will be missed; he def. had a few more cameos in the new and great Star Trek movies with our boy Chris Pine, as always great job with this write....I'm guessing the poem  Leonard Nimoy wrote is about Captain Kirk, Bill Shatner; wild guess ;D....cheers man

Nimoy's last poem was in the form of a tweet written on Feb. 22.

"A life is like a garden. Perfect moments can be had, but not preserved, except in memory. LLAP."

LLAP to you too, my friend.

Leonard Nimoy will be missed. 

When William Shatner dies will he receive the same amount of warm thoughts and kind words that Leonard Nmoy did? I have my doubts.
