The leaf suspends,

spinning on its segue
it strains for voice,
as the outer world nears
the dormant season,

art is forsaken
and poetry cannot
be deciphered,

graffiti sketches
amid the torment
of your sudden
disappearance,

the sea swells in my belly;

begging to capture,
then release you
in the afterbirth
of its foam,

you rose once, within me,
a renaissance of waves,

and i seek no dissolution
of you yet,

feeling the glory of life,
though infused with the pain
of yet one more
star crossed love affair,

i gather up the embers
of our spring affair,
pinks and purples
that burn in bonfires now,

the scarlet leaf spins on her throne,

and i choose not to let go,

o pretty boy blue,

why couldn't you just wish me godspeed,
and kiss me a proper goodbye?

nicely.

Yes Michelle, I too see how your writing is changing as you venture further into your style.  I LOVE your style.  It's you, it captures the beauty in your soul gal.
Well done Mish.

The greatest beauty on earth, is
found in the hearts of those
who love....
