her perfume burns my eyes,
pushes me to her mind.
it swims all around me with strange grace.

burning flowers push me to their mouths,
whispering in unsung syllables
the fragile sweetness of their unseen face.

someone sexy smoking a cigarette.
a waterfall crashing into the sky.
a sheer silk curtain twisting in summer breeze.

loose hair in suspended dance by a fan.
writing too ornate to understand.
mathematical snakes, turned in on X Y Zís.

a miniature smokestack whose factory pumps pleasure.
a breathing spectrum, seeing the world through veils.
a flag pole burning, ashes on ceramic flower

gift wrap to capture the excess, unfurling,
embers fall; the light has gone.
but memories remain to remind me of her power.

amazing lines through out this piece, loved the poem.  

It's in your eyes a fire that's wild and glorious
Unhibited, unfinished in everything I do Let the morning rise like our hearts desire" whipping boy

bsquirrel,
fan-tastic, sheer silk and it pushes the limits

ahhh my squirrel prince of imagery ...
things are so poetically cool when seen thru your eyes...
this is awesome Mike ...
poetic perfection in your combination of metaphor and unique imagery
very cool indeed

Am I loved by my words
Will my vows weather the tide
Bended knees can forsee
all the rhythms of life
And a heart can be held without pride

I'm stubbornly trying to bump you back into my reality.
