Poetry from Kristy Raines

White middle aged woman with reading glasses and very blond straight hair resting her head on her hand.
Kristy Raines


Our emotions go so beautifully hand in hand
I am the calm in your heart, like the silent lake
You are the waves of words that bring out the excitement
and every emotion in me.. And you, like a brook that turns
into a river; creating  a strong current inside of me and
causing the beauty from within me to spill out for you 
I am the reflection of you like a mirror to your soul
And when I look in your eyes I see me looking back
You walked lightly into the beautiful garden of my life
It was so subtle that I didn't realize that you entered
my deepest dreams.. into the soul of my subconscious
So when I fall asleep, you wait there patiently for me;
Sitting on the shore of my dreams..
causing waves of words that stir the very core of my being.. .❤


My Treasure, My Jewel,  With eyes bluer than a tropical pool. 
Her heart as big as the sky.. 
She only knows love which she learned from the One above 
and hate has no room in her life. 
Her beauty is like no other which she inherited from my daughter; her mother, 
and her kindness shines clearly from her smile. 
She has crossed borders to other lands, stood side by side helping foreign hands, 
and all when she was only a young girl.  
She now is grown with a life of her own and no prouder could I be of my Pearl. 
With a servant's heart and a teacher's smarts,  and no fear of what lies ahead....  that's my girl. ❤


I lay among the blooms in a lush green glen waiting for you
under a blanket of starlight and a smiling moon
The diamond buds bloom beneath the sheer blossoms
As a golden bird sings to you the sweetest song of love
Floating on a silver cloud above me, I call to you 
and you swoop down to great me in this sky of blue
You take me where only hope remains and the petals 
of the beautiful bloom of the lotus never closes
Life on earth holds little magic for you and I
as the separation of our two hearts continues
to seek only disillusionment through rosy dreams.
