Evergreen

Hey      you said, turning
at the sight of your smile, your arms and your hazel green eyes

My world returned to life,           full color
blossoming ever evergreen.

“How is it that you’re so strong?”
A laugh escapes my lips
dancing like a wisp

A hundred eyes watch me
a thousand hands reach
reach

I wish I was a dandelion
blown into an invisible draft
free to run, to fly

a soaring bird, never ever
putting a foot down onto the lush,
plentiful earth.

Honey lips

One last word
One last moment
you said

your breath painting
a spectrum of fireworks
in the dark, dark sky.

Your lips brushed
mine
like morning dew

with a hint of day
and the brilliance of
stars
of honey.

Dream.

Looking back
it
never mattered anyway

If your sparks grew into a fire
or were put out
when fanned;

You
were the northern lights
and I was the north star,

baffled
by your outrageous glow as you danced
before my eyes.

 Closer, I thought, closer

Yet
I couldn’t help
but drown in the distance between us.

Won’t you stay a while with me?

Your laughter
slips
through my fingers like sand,

scattered
like soft petals
in the wind.

Slumber

Like the rolling waves
you washed ashore
You laugh
like a torrent of droplets on yellow brown leaves

Dragging fragments back into the deep blue
           My fragments–

disappeared like dust blown into spring’s breeze
Scattered
and laid to rest in the deep sea.

 

 

Who

Like the night swallows the day,
your light corrodes my heart.

It withers like the pages of an ancient novel,

your touch scattering
a field of dandelions in the chilly black.
