Free Verse # 210 (the heart of a flower)

She offered him the ocean
in the chalice of her palms;
the night and its stars
in her obsidian eyes.

~

Love enters us like the storm
Troubles the waters of the sea,
Making its waves gush out unto the shore
Its heart’s hidden gems, its mysteries.

~

Waking
I felt you on my lips,
A tremor of infinite softness breaking
As the dawn in the sky.

~

Love whispers, but for you to hear you must have the heart of a flower, the ears of a butterfly.

~

Gazing into the ocean
Slowly, with the cadence of the waves,
Their gazes melted into one
As their fingers clutched deeper
Like the roots of an old tree.

~

She wore the sun
for a flower in her dark hair,
and lo!
the sun could not be more happy!

~

The poet must, above all else, be pure of heart.

~

The silent enigma –
Like a white flower
She weaves herself
In the very heart of dawn,
Soaked in the red tide
Of its infinite softness.

~

We touched
And something rose into me
As from within
I started to fill with water;
The outflow of this surge –
Light and poetry.

~

She wore the night for wings
and whenever she fluttered
the earth filled with stars
