Time, so precious here and now in the winter of my life as I ponder what I've done and what I'll leave behind I hope that I'm remembered with love and gentle grace, not by the infinite number of lines now present on this face Instead, I beg you see the beauty that lies within … Continue reading Drifting Time
Burdened by the weight of a thousand petaled thoughts mired in muddy memories of a love lost... she abides the bitter torment from what's broken and gone remembering the moments of bliss in his warm arms. Their world... once painted bright colors on her innocent soul now her life alone in shades of ash … Continue reading Weight

Good Morning Everyone- I am thrilled to announce that my poem- ‘Under The Plum Tree’ has been published today at Vita Brevis.
Happy Reading! Linda
Submitted by Linda Lee Lyberg
When you see white clover sprawling in the meadow
do you still think of me even though our love
once treasured, is now with regret over?
As for me I can tell you, the plum is blooming now
I remember the promises we made
underneath its burgeoning boughs
And I will wonder ever after
if you remember too.
The yellow roses came today and I read the message within
Can we please forgive and forget all we said back then
I beg you my love can we renew our cherished love again?
And so today, I measured and took stock of all we shared
with my heart still longing, and my lonesome soul laid bare
I sent to you the dried red rose you first gave to me
with this simple note, let’s meet tonight
when the moon is bright under the plum tree.

In my sleep I whimper as you whisper my name calling me to come hither in the shushing haze while the hypnotic pitter patter of the morning rain plinks upon the piano keys of my ragged pain I mumble and moan, tossing and turning in the cold bed I pluck a fluttering feather from … Continue reading In My Sleep
If I gathered each dewdrop glistening on the rose put them to music and with my pen compose a symphony of our souls, a song that holds the key would you stay forever and listen to the notes as we solve the mystery of how we came to be? Would you take my hand, … Continue reading Symphony
