November 2014 Poem-A-Day Chapbook Challenge: Day 30

As sure as night will fall and slowly blend
In with the dawning day, as sure as fall
Will lay her weapons down and cease to fend
Off winter, and the foes embrace, and all
The seasons come to pass, each in its turn
As sure as hungry hearts will ever yearn

If only for a glimpse of that July
That used to burn within them, that they failed
To keep, as sure as from the truths we try
To grasp, but one old truth will have prevailed
When all the days of ours are through and gone
As sure as life will end, love will go on.

Live for the Love of it,
Sasha A. Palmer (a.k.a. "Happy")

  1. This couldn't have ended more perfectly! Thank-you!:) Hope you enter your a chapbook! (the challenge will be knowing which 10 to omit!)

    1. Janet, my faithful reader and supporter, thank you very much! :-)
      I truly admire your poetry, and you're such an awesome person, your support means a lot to me.
      It was really about getting back to writing and about facing the challenge of writing a poem each day of November, but since I've managed to write those 30, albeit short, poems (Hurray!) I think I will be submitting. Hope you will, too, friend.
      Tomorrow's December - can you believe it?!!

  2. Sasha, I'm so happy the internet is working for now:) Merry Christmas, my dear encouraging friend. Your words have meant more than you can imagine. If/when I do a book expect to find your name in it;)

    God bless you both now and in the New year!

    I hope in 2015, to do more submitting. If you are selling this book send me a copy and I'll send you the money, 'kay?

    1. Merry Christmas, Janet, to you and your beautiful family!

      When (no "ifs") you do a book, I would LOVE to have an autographed copy :-)

      And if I do mine, I'll do the same for you - it's a deal!

      Best wishes for 2015 (2015 - can you believe it?), be well.
