A Lover’s Face #poetry #photography #nature

Is she not beautiful…

Her beauty blooms over me

a sighing red lipstick kiss

I am caught

gazing upon your blushing smile

the heat rises as I ponder

“Can such beauty be held in a mortal’s fingertips?

will my touch cause her to brown and wither?”

I dare not risk the sacrifice

I entreat “Never turn your face”

I remain content

Imagining the silk like fluttering

graze against a waiting lover’s lips

 

Inspired by the beauty of this lovely hibiscus I had to write a poem in her honor.

The Final Call #poem

Look at the stage

for the final bow

as the cast says adieu

to the last show

***

Look into the sky

as the last of the sparks

on the forth of July

fall to the ground

***

Look in the lake

smooth as glass

as the ripple

circles its last

***

Look in the eyes

of a lover

the tear that falls

on the final goodbye
