Goodies from the World: A Poem for Me!

Hello hello!

You know, I've said it a few times before, but one of the biggest things I'm grateful for since I started blogging are the people I've met. The fabulous Cher...she is one of the friends that I keep close to my heart and I when she surprised me with a poem. I was lost for words. You can meet tons of people across the web, but some really are just true gems. I was so honored by this and I want to share it with all of you! I strongly suggest to check out both her blogs AskCherlock and Poems by Cher. Cher is a brilliant poet and writer. Her poems take you to another world and her posts are always filled with interesting thoughts. Whenever you've visited her blogs you leave with a sense of content, knowing a bit more than when you came there. Plus! She always have a little comment for you! You're not talking to thin air. Cher is an absolute pleasure to know and I don't think I've come across anyone sweeter and caring than her. I'm sure that everyone who meets her, feels the same way. I just love her ^_^.

La Danse du Jour
For our very own TJ Lubrano who allows us to see life through her eyes.

Parting early morning sunlit curtains
She sails through an open window,
Shimmers like crystalline dewdrops
Floating lithely above far away fields
Colors of lavender, yellow, and pink,
Rainbow through hues of indigo blue
She alights upon grass to twirl and whirl
Arms swaying, fingers reaching skyward,
An overture to her delicate ballet with life
She laces on and on through thickets of rye
Then wheat, then lush greenness, and soon
Symbiosis of being one with whimsy and
Mystical, magical, colors occurs sublimely
For today is her Danse and through it
Her mind absorbs each dollop as art and
When morn has ended, she will draw upon
Her visions and paint with supplicant joy
