Circling




Look through my shadows of dim frosted fright
See through my wardrobe bereft of love's light
Know that you know me in spite of my heart
You know that you have
from the start.

Walk near the moments of mellower moons
Glimpse the first glowing of late afternoon
Artfully share how our storm's raging force
has brought to us
treasured discourse.

Release me to soar through the wind driven rain
Stronger and fuller and fertile again
Now fly with me, circling and sweeping the sea
Yes, this is what
loving can be.


Dear LadyClaire

Claire-
I love anything that encompasses the circle or the circling event.

This was simply lyrical.
What a talent you have shared with us all.

This was wonderfully and wisely written, and your choice of meter complimented the content to perfection.

Thank you, Claire, for brightening my morning with this.

 Full fathom five thy father lies,
Of his bones are coral made,
Those are pearls that were his eyes;
Nothing of him that doth fade
But doth suffer a sea-change
Into something rich and strange...

Not sappy at all! It's what romantics live for

Which way is right for you,
Stop and softly ask yourself,

Thank you, everyone, for reading and letting me know what you think. This poem actually kind of wrote itself, as does most of my work. I'm glad you've enjoyed it!

Clair, If your poems just write themselves, then please pass my comments on. Tell them that they write themselves so beautifully.
