♥ Rachel♥   (i_got_a_jar_of_dirt) When Is A Ring Not Just A Ring
by Rachel

When is a ring not just a ring
though gorgeous it may be?
When every time you see it
you remember a whole history.

Rings that graced an Aunt I so love
that were to her a special pleasure,
given by her sweetheart to his wife
tokens of their loves treasure.

For many years they had their place
sparkling diamonds on her hands
till came the day they were put away
because of life’s ill shifting sands.

Eventually those lovely rings
that had been such a loving token
came to be handed down to me
with more love than could ever be spoken.

To some they would be a royal find
because of their valued worth
but they are far more in my mind
from the beloved Aunt of my birth.

I see her hands back through the years
on her organ as she would play,
I recall the late night laughter and tears
when I had the chance to go stay.

So when is a ring not just a ring?
When loved ones are attached.
They carry sweet memories on a wing
because they take you back.

Diamond Ring
By: Rocio

The diamond ring glimmered
in the shimmering light.
In the bedside table
near the gentle hand.
The man stood up
still not quite awake,
and held the small ring
waiting for her to wake up.
He touched her gently
bringing her to reality,
arousing her from her dreams,
those sweet and innocent dreams.
She opened her eyes slowly
and her face adopted confusion
as she stood up sleepily,
flopping into her slippers.
The man kneeled down,
something hidden in his hand.
Then he revealed it,
a little diamond ring.
The woman gasped
eyes growing big.
Her breath caught in her throat,
her mouth hanging open.
The man asked the question,
the one that'd change their lives.
The girl gazed into his eyes,
deeply lost in those deep blue seas.
A simple word escaped her mouth,
a word simple and true
and the man jumped to his feet,
throwing his fist into the air.
Then he leaned closer,
smelling her flowery scent.
He kissed her in the lips,
her red and blossoming petals.
They held hands and went outside
gazing into the morning sun
thinking about their future,
the one theyd share forever.

Left at the Altar
by Sarah M.

He gave me the ring
on a cool summer day
we ate our picnic
by Windover Way

He told me he loved me
he wished for my hand
said I was the prettiest
girl in the land

I soaked up the words
believed in his grin
I asked, "When will
the wedding begin?"

Now I search for my groom
while the wedding bells ring
My guests are all happy
the children run and sing

Yet they'll soon be frowning
for my groom, it appears,
has missed his own wedding
he isn't here.

mic | 82 comments Black Orbit
my mic

needle scratches round and round
black rings going by
music jumps from the disk
energizing breathless bodies
he lifts her high above his head
spinning her round the sky
she touches down, never ceasing
dancing rings round him
her dark blur orbits his pale star
as dancers press in around them
she and the record are one
in music and color
but the dancers don’t see her skin
unlike the world
they see skill that could fill a galaxy
with its brightly dark beauty

Orbit Made Her Gaga
by Hanzle

Silver ring must make her dizzy everyday,
a halo that swivels and keeps her blonde head at bay,
don't blame the hair,
don't blame the lyrics,
don't blame the outfits,
although it'll cost her some merits,

It's the orbit,
the orbit made her gaga,
often mistaken for a neck brace,
maybe that's what it was,
until she blamed it,
she blamed it and named it,
she named it her orbit.
