Love sent

Piecing together elements,

Words and sentences from so long ago

Give illusions life to mind

Another place

Another time,

Spent with ink stained hands

Penning letters to be sent

Across seas and oceans deep

To lands unknown,

Yet only dreamed

In a child’s eyes

Letters sent with love.

Take care and God speed

And all good blessings in between

Where your travels sent you,

Young men to wars

On desolate beaches and sandy shores,

Remember those whose ghost remains

A hundred years gone

Where do those names reside now?

On ledgers faded and yellowing pages

And bow tied stacks

Tucked away

In case he comes back,

Yet fragrance lingers

Of rose petals and crumbling sage

Remembrances of passion

And sun filled garden days

Who were you my friend

Whose life was gone

Long before it ever began,

And is she there to see you through

In the light of stars

Dancing again at the ball,

Where she gave you her hand

And love had been all.

I am a sometimes poet and an author of fiction novels (K.L.Laettner) on a quest to master the universe of my mind. My writing runs the gamut of nature, off beat, life and basically the world as I see it through the windows of my eyes. Welcome to my blog. Sit a spell in your big comfy armchair or favorite spot and read for a while if it suits and don't forget to leave a comment to let me know who you are and all that jazz. Looking forward to what each day brings and catch you on the flip side of the stars. Peace and blessings.

    1. Thank you for the reblog. I haven’t added anything to this blog for quite awhile, mostly use my peace, love and patchouli blog on WP. Thank you and just popped into your site, very cool reading 😊 Following with pleasure😊

  1. Nice words. Made me think of my grandfather, who went to war, the first one, with his six or seven brothers. Only three came back, my grandfather and two brothers. His brother-in-law, my grandmother’s baby brother was killed in 1914, in the first weeks.
    I think it’s your word “ledgers” that reminded me, there is a site in france that digitalized all the certificates of those “Fallen for France”, close to a million. So I have a copy of those certificates, issued by the ministry of war, of great-uncles I never met.
    Regardless, have a lovely week-end
