Marifosque

I write with quill and ink

Garden

 

The days are kind; we opened to taste

Luxurious breath caressing our skin

Love has never been this sweeter

For departed with temporary sorrow

She introduced us to hold, and live for

The quiet understanding between us

Upon which door the future we may take

Learning, she is teaching us to move

Together or against, yet with each other

She is teaching us that love ends not

Like the isolated feel of wintry tundra

But stirs again like the gardens in spring

She is teaching us should we will it so

Flowers will bloom brighter in adversity

Then she encourages us to our hands

Our heart beats single in pleasing tunes

We dance to the swirl of calm romance

Leaving a wake of roses farmed in affection

We bloom rare like late flowers in autumn

And In her quiet heady-scented spring garden

Planted firmly she will watch us grow in Love

  1. Metaphorical poem, Mari. I like the use of “garden” as the seat of wisdom. Her is my fav:

    “We dance to the swirl of calm romance
    Leaving a wake of roses farmed in affection
    We bloom rare like late flowers in autumn
    And In her quiet heady-scented spring garden
    Planted firmly she will watch us grow in Love.”

    There is a tremendous activity going on in this poem, alongside the excitement being “groomed” by good hands.

  2. Wow! It’s been a while, but well worth the wait – this was brilliant!
