Pearl (poem)

What is this swirl that has a hold of me

My mind’s awhirl as reason starts to go

A dance a twirl my heart how can this be

A special pearl just said she loves me so


And so I swirl in hopes to find my feet

In such a whirl I wonder what to do

I dance and twirl and barely miss a beat

My precious pearl please know I love you too


Into this swirl these thoughts which lovers share

This unknown whirl which challenged their delight

It danced a twirl a show that it was there

This wisdom’s pearl to keep our love in sight


And so we swirl to give our love a whirl

I danced this twirl for you my little pearl

Oh my, I played the sultry video as I was reading your poem. It was soooo beautiful. The feeling rushing through my veins. The beat and tune just merged smoothly and perfectly with your poem. The video was still playing while I was done reading, so I went back to feel both the tango mode inside my head while your words twirled in my heart. I love it. I love how the word "pearl" symbolizes the woman, precious! The bottom photo also has the shade of a pearl. So beautiful!

Voted up, awesome and beautiful! I would like to share this right now. Thanks. :)
