Anthony Desmond at dversepoets.com is moving on with a new book in the works. He leaves us with several lines of his. We are to incorporate at least 3 of them into a new poem. His words are underlined below; the rest is mine. Have a good day.
Once, your sweet love enveloped me, we played in the noonday sun; golden grass has grown taller - our story had just begun Then you moved and I went away;
the sun departed and rain came to stay,
neon goldfish flashing in the pavement waterway Shade like shadow engulfed me
and like a lioness with belladonna in her eyes,
I craved images of you
Today I felt the fluidity of your presence
when I heard the loons call your name
It's been a long, long time -
but you are just like you used to be, the same
You came back into my life for a day,
a lost love found me, in you
and flooded me like a lone streetlight amongst the darkness to shine on what is true
