  Her Twisted Silky Threads


Love is such folly voice,
singing tangled bars that
drain rhythm’s sweet tempestuous storm,
like a heart song given
across parched perception
that changes true to need.

Love gladly touches whispers
in glade’s bend and bow,
rising to the redwood’s strength,
but such a height is dizzying
and falling  on tundra
that protests its very loveliness
seems more safe.

Why is a heart so careful it
careens, falling as it stands
next to tattered need
expecting Suresh from languid sand
that holds no echo but gives into itself?

She would gladly open,
show her twisted silky threads
to you of noble
and sweet vibrant core,
but listen, still the sound
is silent and withered,
has dwindled into stone
in cold and hardened lack,
to sit and gaze across the
meadow-land of earth and light,
for the song for want has ended,
waiting.


 In the dew of little things,
the heart finds its morning
and is refreshed.
(ee cummings)

Martie -

I could fairly hear a violin playing ...
Mesmerizing ..
truly lovely and melodic.

Another lovely poem.

~Astraea

"Sorrow's crown of sorrow is remembering happier things."

Each one of your poems seems more beautiful than the last - yet I cannot fairly compare them, my friend.

'to sit and gaze across the
meadow-land of earth and light'

Wow - a dream.

Thank you Marge-to be compared to a violin, what a compliment.

Astraea and Tamera, thank you so much for reading and comenting.

Kamla--Thank you, the "my friend" part I liked the best.

 In the dew of little things,
the heart finds its morning
and is refreshed.

Simply beautiful!
