“Love Letter”

by D.G. Vachal

At the end of winter daylight
when lemon passion glows
with the ardor of periwinkle,
at unexpected moments
I remember

a melody long forgotten,
jubilant as a nightingale’s song,
that led my fledgling
heart to soar
towards the blazing stars
once upon the sands of time —

Now, when it matters no more,
I recall the scribbled ink upon the paper,
a voice that called my name,
at twilight’s edge
when my heart beholds the colors,
the warm farewell
of the setting sun.

    • Dear Bobbie, Yes, sometimes, out of the blue, memories of the past come back, and though feelings and meanings have dissipated, we stand bemused as we are transported to the places and times of long ago. We remember, for the past is part of us. Thank you, Bobbie for reading and understanding. Love, Dee

    • Thank you, Ellen for your lovely comment, and I am glad we share the same aesthetic in photography. I was able to capture this scene with my camera, traveling at highway speed, while passing through Connecticut on our way back from Massachusetts to NJ. Blessings, Dee

  1. There is something special about this poem. I remember the first time I read it when you first posted it. If I recall, it was also that time of day, with the sun going down.

    When we have productive days we feel especially good about winter sunsets and the cool air, and this is magnified if loved ones are around. But even alone, the Lord is around.

    Thanks Dee, for reading my stuff. The Lord bless you real good.

  2. Thank you so much, RJ for your kind words. I have been away from writing the past few weeks due to the demands and pressures of business. The “cares of this world” impinge upon us Christians, but I often think about what you mean by “Real Christianity”. It is a fight, the fight of faith, while centering our lives upon the Lord, and casting all our cares upon Him for He cares for us.

    I hope to write again, after I maneuver the waves, and the winds calm down. God bless you.
