It was the first day of Spring,

I took off my shoes and toed the grass

Morning dew still within

Tickled my toes and calmed my soul.

A lonely yellow flower

Poked its head through the ground,

I patted it and murmured,

‘Welcome back, dear old friend’ !

Children played on the swings,

Happy families all around

I looked about and met your eye

A chord twanged in my heart.

The wind was playing with your hair,

You smiled and I smiled back

In your bright blue eyes,

I saw an ocean storm swell.

Your thoughts wove a canvas

Flared up my daydreams and nights

Your touch like an ember

That lit a fire under my skin.

This seems like a moment of truth,

Is it a passing fancy,

Or dare I say the word,

‘Love’ in all its fury ?

Where do we go from here,

To the pastures of everlasting joy,

To love and to keep forever

Or the glass case of broken dreams

To forget and be forgotten…

  1. Yes, a precarious place, absolutely! Love does not make us invincible. Thanks for linking up with dVerse. Try to read and comment on the other poems, as well. And for future reference, when you enter your link to your blog, make sure it’s not from the WordPress reader but from your internet browser, such as Safari. When others clicked on your name in the Mr Linky, the link was broken as the WordPress one will never work. I went in and entered your correct link so now readers can find your poem. Thanks again and let me know if you have any questions about this.

  2. “Where do we go from here, To the pastures of everlasting joy, To love and to keep forever, Or the glass case of broken dreams” Beautiful reflections on love and life. I adore your communion with the “lonely yellow flower.”
