and beauty just happens
if you will wait
long enough -
the sound of plants
breathing under the snow,
of red petals
and green leaves
bursting on the vine
and climbing up over the roof,
the sight of rain
washing the hillside -
a mosaic
on the window
and the scent
that buries the laundry,
fresh picked
from the line
on a june morning
and how it feels
on your skin
when you first wake up
lazy with the last dream
and how she tastes -
she tastes
supple and fragile,
something blooming
just for you.
For Victoria

You have a very lovely way with words. I've read a few of your poems for the first time tonight and I do believe that I am in love with your style. Though I usually do not favor romantic poetry the flow and your choice of words is breathtaking and I thoroughly enjoyed this.

Thanks very much. I think romantic poetry woks when it is not cliche...or at least reworks the cliches.

I love the flow from moment to moment, the series of instants of beauty all adding up to the woman you've dedicated it to. I also love how you tied it all back together, going from the image of plants (cleverly not using the word 'blooming' there; thank you so much for that) to the image of her "blooming / just for you." Personally, I don't like the repetition of "she tastes"--it throws me out of the flow. But all together, this is a truly lovely poem. I like it very much. :heart:

I'm not usually captured so easily by poetry -- even though I write it myself -- but this just caught my eye, and as I began to read it I couldn't stop.
