Love poem #1 (although there have been others)



The pink and purple bled through the clouds this morning
color wicking on every strand of vapor melting across the sky
and I knew it
inside of that moment

but I also knew it
that night in our youth
when minutes stretched far and wide
and you reached through fear and longing
to hang your heart on a hook
that bore your name

or
that time when heaven cracked open
and rained grace and fairies
on the both of us below
twice

but then again
it happened just a week or so ago
You and me
gazing past the present reflected in our eyes
for a moment, seeing a future
that made us cling wildly
to the rock
that we had become

it is every day
really
all gathered up
one by one

and in one
alone
I know it

my whole life long

  7. Holly I am working through my wonky computer issues and come here now to breathe in these words, lovely on love. Your art takes me away to a thin place and captures me in the net of your making, you do make beauty with your words. And this is glorious. Oh to write a book of poetry simply on love...what joy, no?

  8. Reading poetry requires you to slow down and focus. Not my strong suit, by a long shot, so I often just skip trying to read it. I'm glad I took the time to read this one, it is really lovely. Thank you for sharing.

  9. that one who loves you, who reaches through fear and longing over and over, he must be quite a guy.

  12. each time i used to read smaller articles or reviews that also clear their motive, and that is
    also happening with this piece of writing which I
    am reading at this place.

  14. Awesome blog! Is your theme custom made or did you download it
    from somewhere? A design like yours with a few simple adjustements
    would really make my blog shine. Please let me know where you got your theme.

    Thanks

  15. Howdy just wanted to give you a quick heads up and let you know a few of the images aren't loading correctly. I'm not sure
    why but I think its a linking issue. I've tried it in two different internet browsers and both show the same outcome.

  17. I'm curious to find out what blog system you are utilizing? I'm having some small security problems with my latest blog and I'd like to find something more risk-free. Do you have any suggestions?

  18. My developer is trying to persuade me to move
    to .net from PHP. I have always disliked the idea
    because of the costs. But he's tryiong none the less. I've been using Movable-type on a number of websites
    for about a year and am concerned about switching to another platform.
    I have heard great things about blogengine.net.
    Is there a way I can transfer all my wordpress posts
    into it? Any kind of help would be really appreciated!
