This Reverie

What lament, what memory need I find
Within this pensive pause of mind
What query am I to dismiss in this moment now
This heart to live love's vow
Echoes of heart I hear from deep within
And gone the despair, the daunting din
Songbirds call and knowing is my heart
From this reverie I shall not depart
Lilting moments in sweet sounding plea
Make my beloved ever known to me.

This Reverie/Ashante, Rose Marie Raccioppi, Watercolor,


  1. Hi Rose Marie,
    Love the poem,thanks for sharing.
    I just passed by to say hello.
    I hope you are doing well.

  2. Your watercolor is so very beautiful and your poem touched me deeply!

  3. RoseMarie-
    and so you have emerged, once again in to the hope of light restored - I was with you in the darkness - I hope you felt me there. I was quiet so you could understand the truth within - waiting to be known - you are amazing and I join you in the light - never having left your side in the dark search.
    Love Gail
