as love blossoms

Pixabay

seeing brokenness
within, without,
and everywhere about, I shout

at the sky…everywhere, I fly…

emotions high,
and the depths, deep, and dry

as spinning begins,
and the trees look at me
with a silent grin, speaking
of something I’ve missed, I stop…

digress…pause, and breathe life in…

slowing down now, I see

the moonlight cascade
off the tree, and, just then,
something else stirs from within

full of tears, and ready
to begin…this pool
of light glistens
off a reservoir,
felt, yet never been called

to sit in…while

the
moment
stretches out
to the east,
and west again…and

head meets heart
for the first time,
they bond together just fine…as

love blossoms,
they align,
and

time melts into the sublime…

love shines forth

broken wings,
soft and evergreen,
mended,
with the everlastingness
of the sun’s rays,
dancing yellow, and green, they seem

to heal

from
upside down,
as the pain is turned
inside out, and cleaned throughout…

cascading light,
wishing upon a star
from afar, yet
closer, than realization dawns

as the candle drops,
and, hints…by

speaking in
a language of love
forever kissed, I must admit

your scent lingers
in the air,
fair, as memories
become closer to me
than the breath of you near, and

in this instance,
brokenness becomes
something
altogether witnessed

as love
shines forth, and
we become more,
than you and I
have ever experienced…

a benevolent sky…

the rising tide
glides

as I surmise

the nature
of the
feelings serpentine…

coiled
throughout
my entire being,
just as I’m feeling

the breeze

overwhelm me,
one wave at a time…

I consider
love…and,

the feelings
that arise,
just like
the sun

rising

over a benevolent sky…

I hold a yellow petal

fight, fight,
fight, as the feelings
keep coming up,
a tirade that just won’t stop…

bleeding
from within,
associated
with a long ago, lost grin…

sans

the yellow petals
falling from the sky,
one at a time

making me
second guess, the minds
association
with the feelings
bubbling up, I stop

breathe in the aroma,
natures pandora, scent
from above, below my feet,
feeling beneath,
taking it all in

I almost feel free…

close the eyes,
concentrate
on the arising tide,
detach from them,
one at a time

I remind

myself
of the love
all around,
as I bound, up, and over
all the feelings,
plaguing my dreaming…

lightness of being
is now
what I’m feeling, as

the mind clears
itself of these fantasies,
and I hold
a yellow petal close to me,
and give thanks

for now, I’m truly seeing…

I am so pleased to announce that my poem, something altogether unbelievable, is now available at MasticadoresUSA. A big thank you to, Gabriela Marie Milton, and the team at MasticadoresUSA for their continued support, and for publishing this piece.

something altogether unbelievable

the iridescent
lamp
casts a shadow
over the carnage
seen, within the myriad
of moments
taken away from me…

I would be honored if you would go here and read the rest of my poem. Thank you!
