Linda Ori Poems
There was a little fairy Sat beneath a tree - Humming to her tiny self A haunting melody;
' One Bright Star
One bright star in the vast unknown A blazing ember in the night sky shone Reminding me that I'm not alone............... One bright star;
! DO YOU EVER WONDER..................
Do you ever wonder............... Why lives intersect, React to one another - What makes our hearts connect?
There are consequences to everything Intentions have their purpose - So don't deny Or justify -
! A Light In The Darkness
In the darkness of your thoughts Created by circumstances Both complex and overwhelming, When no amount of spirits
' How Do I Reach You?
If I could put it into words - All that my heart is feeling, Would they help to warm your heart Or would they send you reeling?
' Lean On Me
Sure, you're tough and resilient - able to keep your feelings under control, when everyone around you
FOOTBALL! ! !
Football is my favorite game I love to watch them play - Those tightly muscled butts and legs On an awesome autumn day;
! When All Is Said And Done !
Is this what life is all about? All there is to know... I can't believe I've come this far And still so far to go;
' Infinite Depths Of Heaven
From infinite depths of heaven, warrior clouds ignite the universe to flame.....................
! Baby Haiku
A human blossom Blooming with the breath of life - Totally awesome
Alone in the velvet darkness, a soul dwells in ignorance
You alone reveal my soul, The intimacy of my deepest thoughts Wrapped around each emotion, Each beat of my heart;
Take A Chance
I'm not the one you long for, that you worship and adore I'm not the one your heart is crying for I'm not that pretty sweet young lass that colors all your dreams I'm not your cute angelic girl next door

There was a little fairy
Sat beneath a tree -
Humming to her tiny self
A haunting melody;
Just a little tinkle
Was all that I could hear
Floating on the evening breeze
High and crystal clear;
Surrounded by a rainbow,
Sparkles lit the air -
Tiny wings did flutter
Sprinkling gold dust in her hair;
A tiny little forest sprite
Had slipped the bonds of space,
Perhaps a mere imagined thought
Had brought her to this place;
How sweet the sound she echoed
Within this forest spot -
Though I had never seen a sprite
Her image now I caught; ...
