Free Verse # 412 (the difficult art)

I go on loving you
past the total closure
of the heart,
for you are in me
as a ray of light in the flower
when it is still a seed
buried in the earth.

~

My poems go
where reason cannot follow,
entering that silence
where her breath lives,
dissolving in her light
the longing in my soul.

~

Dissolve…
the candle as it burned
sighed this secret
into my heart

~

Dusk descends…
my heart a pebble
hurled by rivers
coursing amid the stars

~

Love
ground me in the silence
of your heart,
teach me the difficult art
of opening again and again,
the grace of being a rose
in your garden of dawn.

~

No poem will ever capture the beauty of this moment, yet this moment is beauty steeped in poetry.

~

My heart
a cemetery of unheard sighs
and love whispers
lost in the wind

~

I exist in two places at once — in the poem, and in the silence of your heart.
