Of Love and Such

Updated on August 16, 2012

Oh sweet, my valentine
With ease and youth we lay

In the greenest patch of sod
More time for clouds and lazy smiles
Red, a love for red

A rose, nature's blush across
Your cheek supposing kisses
Just supposed

Mornings, the heart wakes to itself
Rising as a lark, harmoniously.
No song but your scent, no dance but your eyes
No desire but to be near you
And feel your cozy laughter ignite
In my chest with the sun.

My sweet horizon, there will never be enough
World or time to drink you up
Or ever get my fill.
I want to make you know how glad I am
To have you stirring up my heart
With the trembling of larger things.

We should take flight; still
Hand in hand, heart in clamoring heart
Just we and soft warm air
Each day together a marvel
Wherein your happiness is mine.

      Though time insists on teasing safely, then on passing by,

      abandoning a wake of wonderment and questions why,

      your long imagined kisses still impress upon my cheek,

      your poetry still motivates my heart and soul to speak.

      Yours always,

      Happiness for me on Monday morning, August 20, is finding this fresh new poetry from Northwest Starr "stirring up my heart with the trembling of larger things." She reminds all good hearts how wise and beautiful it is to wake up everyday with the "cozy laughter" of love in their lives and with one's own "sweet horizon" near at hand yet everywhere else abounding as well.
