The air was full of you


*

In the instant
you raised your arms
to enfold my shoulders
my feet lost touch
with the ground.

You placed me
on a swing
and pushed me
into the current
of ascension.
I gathered speed
while the wind
got wild
with my hair
and sighed
into my ears.

I shed all my worries
and let them fly away,
in loose fragments
never to assemble again.
The air was full of you.
Your grace guided me
to the source
of your fragrance.

You kept me airborne
in those heights of
weightlessness
in the very center
of Love.

Just a moment in time
but you labelled it
with your name.
This song will dwell
forevermore
within my core.

It will not fade
it is a duet now
played by
your heartstrings
and mine
out of time
in this present moment
of incorruptible beauty
which generates
only Love
in its most
brilliant colors.

Oh my, Margherita, this is just pure joy within each line. You expressions straight from your heart. This stood out to me . . .

Love this Margherita. You overwhelm me with your beautiful words and story.I pictured you as a child with your father pushing you on a swing but it could just as well be an adult situation as one flashed before me that I felt deeply also, Thank you for this one. Jo

You are free-verse at its finest M...So many great lines trickle with emotion here!

loved this:

"...Just a moment in time
but you labelled it
with your name.
This song will dwell
forevermore
within my core..."

what a pleasure, ty!

Open arms can be the most fragile in the world...

Thank you, dear Jerry, for your very kind and generous comment. I am glad you felt the joy  I tried to convey.

"To touch the soul of the poet" is a wonderful comment, dear Yann, thank you so much!

Dear Jo, I much enjoyed your interpretation, thank you dearly. I admit that I always associated being on a swing with total happiness, joy and a great sense of blissful freedom. I could never resist to a swing and I have beautiful childhood memories related to this. Not with my father though, as he was already in heaven, but in dreams ... oh yes!

Thank you so much, dear devina, for your loving comment. Yes, free-verse is my favorite poetic expression, but I deeply admire those who possess the key and the talent to combine great harmony with rhyming forms, just like you.

Love and joy.
Margherita

Thank you so much, my dear Poet friends, for your kind and generous comments. I am melting here in Rome and I have been busy, but I miss you too and I do hope to be back soon.

Dear James your words brought a big smile, thank you! Yes, that's exactly where I am in quiet hours!!

Love to all.

Warm, sensitive writing dear Margherita. An honor it's been, to have known you.

Touch, but don't look

Margherita - I'm a fan and I loved it and also the air around it which reminded  me of long ago wonderful moments. Thanks for the memories resurrected by your poet's pen which now have me feeling just a wee bit younger. Hallelujah! Namyh
