Free Verse # 217 (In my veins I feel you)

In my veins I feel you
As the parched earth
Feels the first autumn rain
Breathing through the air
Before it falls,
As the garden
Under heavy snow
Feels the thawing wind.

~

With poetry’s passion for thread
I weave the stars into a comb
And pass it through your hair,
Time and again, softly, tirelessly,
As waves lap the eternal shore.

~

The shards of her silence
Fell upon his lips
Like morning dew

~

As though they were
Two rays of a summer sun
They now merged,
Their bodies
In the heart of autumn
Folding and unfolding
Into a flower burning red.
