Birds That Never Land, Stories that Don't End

Updated on February 20, 2011

Aloft she hovers on words he utters

Alone he watched as words break free

Castles forming, valleys greening

Rivers flowing, clouds as he

Speaks of beauty beyond comparing

Wonders glimpsed at edge of sight

Moons waning, stars weaving

Stagehands rolling out the night

Her hands trembling, darkness falling

Her heart creates inside her mind

He inviting, she receiving

Rising up the dance unwinds

And she thinks of midnight waiting

He enraptured, her mouth, her face

Heedless of the schemes they're weaving

She has chosen love's embrace

Ticker tape of stardust falling

Heaven's music keeping time

The story of their love in lyrics

Both composing, lost in rhyme

Even as they draw the curtain

As the silent crowds arise

Even when applause is thunder

Each is lost in the other's eyes

      Hi Winsome. I have been away for awhile, so I am hopping around trying to catch up with my favorite hubbers hubs.

      This is a lovely poem...art in words. A delight as always.

      Thank you Genna, you inspired me to include rhyme in this one and I'm delighted you enjoyed it. I think poets are a little like sowers who plant lovely and sometimes wild images in the green fields of the minds who find them. Keep sowing. =:)
