Birdsong

I awakened to syllables
in musical notes
from the window sill;

a glistening hue of scarlett
through sheer bedroom curtains.

You traced my steps,
followed droplets of tears
and dried each one
with the hem of your garment;

ivory,

with shades
of scarlett.

Petalled Kiss

Let your love wash over me;
cleanse the deceit from my hair,
the suffering from my hands
of those who let go

and left me in pieces.

Cover this blue
with the pink hue
of camellias,
soft, subtle
like your whisper;

like your petalled kiss
upon my cheek.

Love Letter #65: Your Name

Gold ribbons, swirling
upon waking flowers,
yellow as dew laced daffodils

and I can imagine you
conducting the symphony.

Wings flutter as birds
sing the sweet syllables
of your name. I lift it up,
from the rooftops, weep;

psalms sung of a love-
an affection like no other;
a joy found only

through the innocence
of your eyes.

Attempting to Flower

I love the way your light
brings out my petals
reflecting your image
in my sway;

weeds all around ,

I found a way
to bloom.

Light Show

Pieces of time swirl
in shades of periwinkle;
seas of juniper
catch the light
of midnight stars,

swooning

to the ebb and flow
of us.

Love Letter #64: Shadow

I can still smell the honeysuckles
hanging over grandma’s front porch
like sweet memories to cling to
when life breaks your heart.
I felt like that weeping willow
on some rainy days

when I thought you didn’t hear.

I remember violets tickling bare feet
hanging my eight year old troubles
on the clothesline,
between unmatched socks,
but, I still didn’t know you were close.

These days,
he brings me pink carnations
and white calla lilies,
holds my hands, gentle, like petals.
Watching our love flower, I realize,
all those nights, I cried out,

you were listening all along.

Transformation

She stepped out of shadows
with a new willingness
to bend, to flower,

to fall
and rise again
like the waves
that stormed her path;

the unpaved road they traveled
where boulders were transformed
to mere stones

by the move;
the perseverance

of love and faith alone.
