On Warmth

by hiraeth   Jun 29, 2016

May April bring you the antonym of cruelty -
I know something more saccharine than

tender lips milking ambrosia from
a bakers-dozen bouquet of roses (red)
and lavenders,

lapping of wind on August nights
after love-confessionaries were
distributed like confectioneries,

summer solstice speaking
six short verses:

The continuity of blue breaks;
marigolds blossom in the horizon.
Carrying the root of your heart
to let it bud where it's needed.
Luna dawns to whisper sweet nothings
( you ),

it's this poem.


This was one of the pieces I've submitted for my final portfolio for a writing class. The final portfolio was a website I made that consisted of images (that included the poem), this is that image: http://i.imgur.com/9iSme86.png

    This poem by mark is truly breathtaking.

    The nature tones within this elegant piece is just the right touch of romance. Using months within a poem is very significant of the mood setting and I always have loved this angle when used in poetry.

    The play on words is very delightful and the end... just grabbed my heart!

    Nicely done, Senryu, very emotively expressed free verse.
    As I frequently try to tell those who criticize me for writing of darkness quite often, life has not promised anyone that ours will be a rose garden, nor is all that glitters always gold.
    Into EVERY life a little rain must fall, for it is water that gives our lives sustenance...
