Moondustwriters Thursday - guest poem by Daniel Audet


Welcome to Moondustwriter Thursday.
It's a day I like to promote the poetry of friends.
Daniel Audet is a wonderful writer whom I have the privilege of knowing. He has an incredible back round: He writes fiction, writes songs, hosts a radio show (or two), and drove a truck. I am blown away with his writing and his poetry is...
Well you read it and tell him what you think.
Thanks Daniel!




She Waits
a poem by 
Daniel Audet

The fury of her love
threw her hair wild.
Light from a thousand stars
shone in her liquid eyes.
Echoes of laughter,
hard rain of kisses
all haunt me
still.

Blinded by the
brilliance of her spirit
I turned away, for a moment.
She whispered “close your eyes.”
“Open your heart and you will find me”
She was gone.

An anguished desert before me
for an endless season
I walk upon burning sands
til I reach the other side
Where she
waits







Jamais...
a poem by
I should never have…

Loved someone like you
saw the world in your eyes
freely laughed
cried some
 too
*

I should have…

Thought first
Run away
Held back my heart
not been caught in your
 embrace
**

I will  a l w a y s...

Remember your smile
Love your deep voice
Treasure your touch
Yearn for one 
more
*

Thanks A. Dombrowski for the Martini shot

Lovely pairing.

Two for the price of one.

I love these thursdays, always such wonderful pieces you leave us with, Moon! These are a touch on the sadder side, but no less beautiful for it. They go well together, these two.

Claudia said...

wow - two wonderful poems
thank you both so much

what i loved about daniel's poem is the vision - once you have seen "something" and know that's just the right thing - you will have all the energy and patience to cross the desert and walk over burning sands - cause - in the end - you know you'll get what you have longed for - and she waits…wow!

Daniel is a remarkable individual. Follow him on twitter @DanielAudet
I'm expecting his first novel to be a best seller.
I will beg to do a book review - I'm reading it - riveting


Keep an eye on this guy.
