To Be Loved ...

Services for Real Estate Pros with Auto & Home & Life Insurance throughout North Carolina

The tugs came rampant and vibrant and poetic and with that, I give you ... one of the best poems I've ever laid my soul upon:

I Will Wait

I am an arrow
Aimed with trust and devotion
Adrift in the falling dark,
Sailing above white fences
State lines and through the Milky Way

Seasons change and I disappear
Beyond the horizon
dissipating into oblivion.
Far into my flight there is
No turning back.
I watch the light break through the sky
My pilgrimage before me in the blue distance.

Flames break free and
Frightening spikes of passion become
Wedged between hours and months and
And if I don't stop,
It will be impossible to tell where I end
And you begin.
With only the here and now,
The once was,
And the soon to be...

I will wait for you.

~By Jennifer Monroe~

How can I not cuddle up to that?  Time to hit the sheets ... and the other half of my soul.  No worries, we got a room:)

She is just so beautiful in words that come from the depth of her soul ....ah, but the definite two souls who cannot mesh together...but have separate entities as to compliment each other.  Now...go cuddle :)

Make no mistake, this lyrical work here was the articulation of my bias (but hard to argue against case) choice for the best damn writer not published or Published for that matter ... Jennifer "F'N" Monroe!

And Bettag, never hold back with the smart-ass stuff.  An appropriate insert of humor can be just as beautiful.

And that was completely different, and worthwhile too!  You've hit the jackpot Mr. Sardi, but I believe you already know that!

You have fulfilled your duty. When words find the page following the gentle whisper of the muse, they are but petals on a flower at the stroke of midnight. They remain in the darkness until that time when the sunrise of sharing allows them to stand tall in our morning.

Once shared, they move beyond the realm of fantasy and privacy and give the world the opportunity to stop, look and listen. The reader is offered the opportunity to wander the vast network of their own experiences and give picture to prose, music to words and feeling to ambiguous emotions.

These thoughts cascading from first word to last are no longer Jennifer's. She has unlocked the tablet door and given them to you. Unselfishly you have given them to us. In return, some will comment, some will remain quiet, but all have benefited.

Our experience and growth through your sharing finally gives Jen access to the karma created. We are better for receiving this gift and she is better for opening that door.

Nice-- you know I love her writing. But it didn't explain the Sky Watcher name change.  Unless you are turning to astrology!   Still on my quest.
