Free Verse # 248 (gathering her smiles)

Well of silence,
your each whisper
in me finds home
as a star in the sky.

~

As a parched summer I am
nostalgic for the wetness
coursing her crimson lips

~

Brewing in her eyes
as far over the sea
a storm to drench my soul
in the waters of poetry

~

Here I want to live,
here I want to die
embracing the seasons
as they turn the sky.

~

I, an endless sea—eternally changing, eternally in harmony with itself.

~

Her smile
on his lips danced
as though it were a star

~

In this silence
I persevere,
a leaf falling
through endless skies.

~

All these stars
freckles in her skin,
along her curves
poems burning,
the forest of the nightsky.

~

The night
a ship of ghosts
all whispering her name

~

Gathering her smiles,
fragrant flowers
in the melting vase of memory,
their petals
the breath of dawn,
the hues of the dusk sky.
