Cool breeze Blows

It is a beautiful morning.
The sun and the moon
form a coalescence between
night and day.
Together they share a frame in my eyes.

Over the blue horizon
of water supporting
the island, she sits under the tree.
Her hair is flowing.

I smile and think of beauty
as I see her soft bare hips
form an image of sensuality
as I touch the nape of her neck.


I see her silhouette fade
and I wonder if her essence
is gone.
She is the one that I love.
Our separation is flightless sometimes.

I cry as my eyes are
contained in my feeling.
I am very lonely.
I look and see my two hands.

The lines go nowhere
yet they end on my fingers.
I use my thumb to follow
the blue crooked vein
and wonder about movement.

I look out the window
and see the nighttime
come via a backdrop
of darkening grey blue vastness.
A couple stars poke holes
through the sky’s canvas.



The flash of a plane flickers
its light and pretends to be a star.
It move westward and I am
wishing myself inside.

Dark smoke clouds carry an eerie
image and remind me of those who
died before me.
Ghastly is the image.

Yet again I sleep
to find another day
and the woman I adore.
We make love until I wake.

Life is sweet in moment’s dialect.
Speak softly tomorrow.
I will leave the window open
and let the cool breeze blow..

This is beautiful and full of lots of metaphor. I like how the story unfolds and progresses through each stanza. You have done a great job and I enjoyed reading this very much
