A Russian Woman With a smile

A Russian Woman With a smile

A Russian Woman with a Smile

Her head rested on her hand
A scarf wove its way around her shoulders
She looked straight into the camera
And her smile
It was slight
And it was serene
But nonetheless it was a smile

What is she thinking
He wonders as he looks into her eyes
Is she dreaming
Is she thinking
Is she wondering
Or does she know
Know what it is she is looking for.
Or just waiting for it to happen.

Is she sure of herself
And of her destiny
Or is she apprehensive
About the things to come
Thinking of her future

Is she to be alone for the journey
Or with a mate
A mate who understands her soul her heart her feelings
Is that what she wants or does she yearn for something else
A life with just her thoughts to keep her company

Maybe she is not sure
Is it best to answer to herself alone
To be the captain of her own course
To think her own thoughts
And write her own poetry

But what is poetry if no one is there to read it
No one to share it with
To understand what she is saying
To care what she is writing
And thinking and doing

She has her thoughts
Many thoughts
Of love of happiness of a future
Of peace
Of serenity

And yet she wants someone to know all this
To know how she feels
To feel it along with her

The feelings of success of defeat
Of sorrow of joy
What are these feelings if there is no one to share them with
Are they without meaning
Without any footprints in the sand

No
She knows what she wants
And only time will tell if it all comes true
Or if she is left to ponder her thoughts for eternity

I Loved You

I loved you; and perhaps I love you still,

The flame, perhaps, is not extinguished; yet

It burns so quietly within my soul,

No longer should you feel distressed by it.

Silently and hopelessly I loved you,

At times too jealous and at times too shy.

God grant you find another who will love you

As tenderly and truthfully as I.

Alexander Sergeyevich Pushkin

A woman with a smile

Her head rested on her hand

A scarf wove its way around her shoulders

She looked straight into the camera

And her smile

It was slight

And it was serene

But nonetheless it was a smile

What is she thinking

He wonders, as he looks into her eyes

Is she dreaming

Is she thinking

Is she wondering

Or does she know

Know what it is she is looking for

Or just waiting for it to happen

Is she sure of herself

And of her destiny

Or is she apprehensive

About the things to come

Thinking of her future

Is she to be alone for the journey

Or with a mate

A mate who understands her soul her heart her feelings

Is that what she wants or does she yearn for something else

A life with just her thoughts to keep her company

Maybe she is not sure

Is it best to answer to herself alone

To be the captain of her own course

To think her own thoughts

And write her own poetry

But what is poetry if no one is there to read it

No one to share it with

To understand what she is saying

To care what she is writing

And thinking and doing

She has her thoughts

Many thoughts

Of love of happiness of a future

Of peace

Of serenity

And yet she wants someone to know all this

To know how she feels

To feel it along with her

The feelings of success of defeat

Of sorrow of joy

What are these feelings if there is no one to share them with

Are they without meaning

Without any footprints in the sand

No

She knows what she wants

And only time will tell if it all comes true

Or if she is left to ponder her thoughts for eternity

At times too jealous and at times too shy.
God grant you find another who will love you
