Poetic Moment

Updated on February 25, 2010

Come To Me

 
Come,
drink from the fountain.

Come
taste the water
from my well.
Treasure your soul
upon my chest
and come,
drink from the fountain.

Come,
climb the ancient tree.

Come into my nest,
settle your bones
into my silken skin,
nestle your fragile
luminous shell into
the restless night.
Come taste the
sweating sap,
seeping for
your every need,
desire of the
weeping tree.
Come,
climb the ancient tree.

Come,
come to the bower.

Come honour the
rising of the moon,
full and intense
in a ravenous glow,
gently stirring,
warming the breath
of a panting breeze.
Come dance beneath
the moonlight,
come conquer the
dying night,
lovers searching
the morning light.

Come,
come to me.

      Thank you jannyC, poetry is my life, but poetry is life, it is all around us, once you are one, with your senses and surroundings, then the word poetry doesn't exist, it is just, living.

      Sensual one I like.Once again your words really make you feel and see the poetry they are not just words were reading but images that instantly manifest in your head.

      I have read a lot of poetry and while most are all good yours has the "it" factor it has what true classic poetry is to be. Bravo my friend I am indeed a fan and enjoy reading your works. I added you to Stumble.

      Your words captivated me. Made me want to run away and follow my heart. Nothing moves me so much, other than the imagery of beautifully expressed words coming from experience and you have truly moved me. Amazing.
