Cranberry Leaves

Skipping lightly
through fog-filled air,
rose-petal scent,
lavendar sky,
holding hands,
just you
and I
touching,
touching,
cranberry leaves,
sweetly tart,
reddish fruit,
forbidden not,
where our love
took root.

Settling down
in grass filled glades,
mahogany leaves,
broadsword blades,
sofly,
softly,
touch our legs;
rose-petal scent,
lavender skies
dappled water,
shades of blue,
custard clouds,
golden sun,
my what days
I've spent with you.


W. James Beard, Jr.

Thanks folks, this type of "love" is a new style for me...only written two this way so far, this and "Flowers In The Sky", and intend to do more as they are really "fun" to write.

Again, thanks

A delightful portrait of freely given love. Really nice!
