 Poems For Debra3 comments

Debra was a very dear cyberfriend of mine who has recently passed on. Her online name was dawnis. I wrote these poems for her while she was still alive. She liked them. She was quite the poet herself. I miss her.

Faith in the Face of Disparity

Such is the nature of the times between
when old guard resort to unabashed force
trying to hold back a necessary dream
which chuckles and unfolds steady on course.

Beware the shadow projecting the past
a nightmare of warning rather than fact
as hindsight shows it simply cannot last
but as fertile soil for future extract.

Odd moments catch tears that release relief
ride the winds when not all is what it seems
silver wordless steam affirms your belief
when there is nothing left but primal screams.

Shining spirit light this path of strategy
salvation from nemisis and tragedy.


Visiting Dawn Is Waking Up

I clicked into your poem
and then in the reading through
visited a friend I've known
from long since I've forgotten when
and although we've never met
in the memory it feels as if
we had gone somewhere together
and shared an experience
in time and place
those things it takes
to make it all come real.

Lovely. Thanks. :-) I have quite a few friends at NCN of whom I could say that we share memories "as if it were real", though we have never met. Then, with one or two, we made the jump out of virtuality, and the cybermemories take their true place. All this is real. All of it.

to those people we have never met. The friends I have here at NCN have a special place in my heart. Gosh, we laugh and joke and fight and cry together, I would say that is pretty real. I am sorry for the loss of your friend Robert.
