Holly Blue's Song

  

Rope Orion and stretch it across the Milky Way
Paint fields of blossoms on the canvas of heaven
Use a thousand languages to find the words to say
Take a numeral in infinity and multiply it times seven



Capture a midnight tornado in the power of all it's might
Visualize the world as you would see through an eagles eye
Bottle the brightness from every star in this Autumn's night
Take the beautiful song of unicorns and mermaids that cry



Dive the depths of darkness encased in the bottomless sea
Pan for gold in the streams of angelwings in threads of lace
Count the needles in every haystack upon your bended knee
Peer into blackholes sharing tunnels from regions in space



If you were to do all of this with open eyes and tender heart
If you could just imagine the touch of what all of this brings
If you were to look into a butterflies soul each and every part
Then you would hear the song that Holly Blue's heart sings

Mark Bohannan

Mark,
You have done it again. So much effort, even though it seems effortless for you. You are a credit to Passions.

Respond to my call and let the waves of my heart fill your life with the wonders of love

Mark my friend, just wait until the MBOOPAS see this, I can say without fear of contradiction that they will love this one. As if it wasn't enough that you've posted beauty on the site, you cap it again and again. Utterly amazing, if I were to scour the works of every master poet, I'd still not find one with half the ability you consistently display. Awesome, it truly is.
Take care

Marsha-Just who is paying you to come up with these replies cause I know it ain't me my friend.   Thank you much...I don't have the proper words for you comments...

Karilea-You????  Put down your pen???  I think not my friend or you will have at least one mad poet pounding on your door.  Thank you dearly.

Victoria-Thank you for reading not only once but twice and next time you are around the golden nugget....drop one in the slot for me.

Deb-Thank you and I am glad you liked the flow in this one.

serenity-Thank you my friend....especially for that wonderful hug...come back ANYTIME...

Holly-No thanks needed and as you know, I only pen what is in my heart....so we all know it is true don't we?  (say yes, and then just )  Thank you for inspiring this one as well as so many of my others my friend.

Wow...I'm spellbound...breathless, even.  This is wonderful!  You've taken words and spun them perfectly together to create a gem of a poem.
