"The Ways of Love" Tonight's open mic...now with audio...
The touch of your hand
The look in your eyes
The way you speak to me

They say
I love you

And they make me love you
More

Its not as though I didnt
For I do

It reinforces the bond
We have
We two

So special to me
The love you bear
So tender the words
They float in the air
Over my head

They surround my heart
They hold me close
In the tender way
You do

The bond is so strong
It survives all the blows
Time delivers
It will withstand the hurt
Life brings

We have woven it
Together
Not even death hurts
Us

All your ways
Tell me
So much love is
Here

9. That's great
I couldnt get the last one to work, but this one did.

I liked hearing it better than my reading it. I get to hear how it is supposed to sound.

10. My dear suninvited!
I'm sorry the last one didn't work for you...

And yes, poetry is meant to be heard...

When you hear it, you hear the meaning much more clearly than when you just read it...

The words come alive when they're spoken!

Thank you sweetie!

If you want, PM me your email, and I'll send you the original link of the MP3 so you can hear it...

11. Yes, it sounded much better coming from you
than the way it sounded in my head.

When I was in school I always competed in the UIL prose interpretation, and my teachers always wanted me to try poetry, but I wouldn't. I am just not good at it.

Indeed yes, the cadence does more clearly show when you hear it...

I love reading my stuff when it has those!

I am most fortunate to have such love in my life...

17. My dear crim son...
Oh, thank you, sweetie...

That's just the way it emerged...

I read it last night at the open mic reading I go to every week, and I didn't realize just what I had till I was partway through...

The applause at the end told me.

18. Is there a way to hear you?
You have a rather magnificent voice and I imagine you read well.

25. Well...I could have put the link for the audio in a more obvious spot...
And I think I'll start putting it above the poem...

Hopefully that'll make it more obvious!

No worries, sweetie...

23. Oh, my dear CaliforniaPeggy!
I am not much for poetry, but listening to you really kept my attention.

What a gift you have. And how generous you are to share it.

Thank you!

24. My dear question everything!
Wow, you just knocked me over!

Thank you so much...

Poetry is meant to be heard...

With your encouragement (and I was going to anyway, lol) I plan to keep on posting the recordings. It's a lot of fun, now that I've got it set up!

Really though...you are too kind, sweetie...

26. I still remember the movie "Dead Poets Society"
where the assignment for the kids was to write poetry. Robin Williams in a really non-comic touchy role - and I remember thinking then that I would never be able to do this.

Perhaps, with the right coach...
