Our Love…

“…so close that your sea rises with my heat.” C.Perez

Our love crescendos, turning us into liquid.

Oceans of your love crash and swell, then ebb

into calm retreat, painting the canvas bare…

*

Flowing across the layers of my electrocuted mind;

Covering all the shards of hurt from the past

with the joy of this glorious present moment in time;

Leaving only love’s fading footprints on the sand.

*

Our love grows in weeded beds of flowers sweet

with honey bees’ favorite blossoms, filled with nectar…

Without the taint of poisonous words that sting and dig

deep into the soul, leaving scars blight and spoil.

*

You. my love, are life’s precious fruit no longer forbidden

in the garden of beauty and perfection, delectable as

fresh peaches graced with rich sweet cream

*

Feeling you here in this moment, in this time of uncertainty,

Calms my storm of chaos that sit churning just off shore.

You are here now…

“so close your sea rises with my heat.” C.Perez

We are doing Poetics at d’Verse this evening that deal with endings! She gave us six ending lines from poems of various poets. We had to choose one, and take the ending line of that poem, to continue the thought of the poem, in the same manner as the original poem. I chose ending line of the poem,  C.Perez ~ Love in a Time of Climate Change to write my poem. Hopefully it is close to what she is asking us to do. We are to use the ending line as an epigraph (between the title and the body of the poem). Or at the end… I did both.

  1. Oh my ….. there is a deep love and passion in this.
    “Covering all the shards of hurt from the past
    with the joy of this glorious present moment in time;”
    The use of the word shards tells so much…there is a past to this relationship that has been difficult.
    And I love these lines:
    “delectable as
    fresh peaches graced with rich sweet cream”
    This I can taste….his is love that is present in that moment.
    A wonderful response to the prompt.
