Did my words
  just drip
    from you

Honey from a comb?

Fallen
  to your sterile earth
   driven in
     distraught flesh
    
      And I

the undone
  the alone
     am stung
       by tiny thoughts
of you

I just work
    fly
flit through life

and not pause
  questioning
    the color of flowers
       or the nectar
of you

You are such giant
  a mass
   of love
    and distance
          
       And I

have lost my
  flight path

spinning driftily
  without your scent
    to draw me
       for summer has gone
         and the flowers
dead
      
       And I

so small

am vanished

I am much impressed with the formatting work done with this. It adds to the feeling of flight depicted in words. It likes me much.

 Now and forever, my heart hears ~one voice~.

Excellent! This reads so easily in the format you've chosen and emphasizes each line!

I know that I should stop being surprised, each time I read upon a new facet of your amazing talent.  Excellent verse, as always.  

 May I never be too busy to help another's load,
Then I'll be drinking from the saucer 'cause my cup has overflowed.

Severn, this is a beautiful poem.  I read it again and again and was drawn back.  You have a great talent.

Severn, my man, good poem. (Just kidding about the "man" thing ... gotcha, though, didn't I?).  You'll find no disagreements with the above here.  Beautiful poem, excellent format, fine words.

Liz - what do you mean by poet's poet? Forgive my ignorance!! Thanks hon.

*S* - thankyou!!!!!

Satiate - that means much. Thankyou.

Severn, you could never be a small thing by any standards. Another excellent example of your talent.

 To the world you might be just one person but to one person you might just be the world.
