~ Art of the Soul ~

Wild flight across the horizon
has drawn me to your footsteps.
Elusively, I haunt your shadows,
roaming places you walk unseen,
enraptured in your light - for no
yearning sun could paint a shadow
only love can cast alone. Now, here,
underneath Eros' bright blessing, I
am found, gently sketching my soul,
realising forever in strokes and breaths, I
etch without need of any brush, for
my half is tinctured just - and even
Yemen's arid heart could thrive by the
sustaining colours of your loving art.

O my dove, your shadows are not so dark!
Unshuttered demons surface still, yet even they
limn the illustrations of your soul - I'd
dream their flight away to paint you peace, if
order was your desire, but such penumbra is
ever a part of the half of you: I could not erase
sweet anything from your masterpiece.

Da Vinci and Van Gogh knew not the passion
wrought by colour of a fired heart, and, to think, my
easel knows only mere shadows of you yet!
Love crafts here now, and you; yes:
Love's art abides in me, enduring past eternity.

A little early for voyeurism I see, but that's okay. I don't think Christopher will mind if I a bit early. Very complex and well done piece my friend, it likes me much.

Ok, WOW! (And, yes, I did notice it was an acrostic. Are you proud of me?) Stunning, heartsister. My only criticism (am I allowed to give one?) is that the first verse has only one fullstop - I got a little exhausted reading it! But other than that...

**WOW!**

Severn ..wonderfully crafted and oh so beautiful....imagine the pictures you will paint with word once you finally meet
"Da Vinci and Van Gogh knew not the passion
Wrought by colour of a fired heart, and, to think,"
Oh, I do like those lines

I think the best poetry comes from the heart!Doesn't matter about all the little stuff, it is the chosen words and their meaning from the depths of ones soul, to bring out to light, their deepest emotions.

You have done a wonderful job on this one! I Liked it very much!
Your heart and soul does speak!

It is a gift like this that makes me happy to be alive. That I could prompt such inspiration is beyond my ken, and likely will ever be. I feel honored, blessed, loved and more, by this K. You are indeed the greatest blessing in my life, one which has become much brighter as of late!
This epic work of art only scrathes the surface though my heart, for we have many many more stanzas to add to it!

Absolutely stunning in every respect. I am speechless, and that is a rare occasion indeed. My hat, were I wearing one, would be off to you.

And after you meet will the colors on your palette be longing, desire, passion, devotion, and happiness? I hope so. Fairy tales come true, in odd ways sometimes, but WOW! they do!! I wish you all the happiness I experienced in my meeting not long ago, but less of the suffering tho'. *sigh*
Good Luck!

P.S. wonderful poem (said rather jealously LOL for my acrostics are nothing but irritants when I attempt them LOL)

Martie - thanks!
Skyfyre - wow. Thankyou so much - blushing...
RG - hugs to you too, you huggy thing.
I.Skye - I think it will be almost a literal explosion! Hope the suffering wasn't/isn't too hard?
