David_Macleod said:A Picture of a Candle Flame

The poems was limned
by a digital art image, but
did the words illuminate the picture
or was the picture portrayed by the words
the balance on such a piece is invaluable
and the two were completely complimentary
words and art in harmony
.

Very nice David
Just beautiful
Thank you V

Wh1skeySwagger said:she holds the beauty of a field of sunflowers
And all these magical powers
That consume me again and again

Could it possibly be
That all that would want me
Or am I going out on a limn


Haha yes Swagger you're going out on a limb on this one
Thank you V

Sempiternal

today my mind and I visited  
the emerald grass  
of my grandmotherís yard;
its surface pregnant with moisture
and waxy, like my jelly shoes -
though the sound of them
rubbing together
sets off waves of goosebumps;
popsicles on sensitive teeth  
in the Florida sun
 
(inside the house
with its always dusty,
bare-vinyl floors;
dark to keep the heat  
at bay ~ windows open,
the breeze one millimeter
above hot and stale -  
box fans quietly rattling
against the tableís shiny surface
 
comforting, that sound
 
the children are somewhere,
~they know better than to be  
anywhere
they ainít allowed~
the women gather around  
to gossip about  
those unlucky enough
to have missed todayís
court session)
 
Mimi was a beautiful woman,
before she made the choices
that forever separated her
from herself -
thick wavy hair,
liquid midnight
down her back;
olive skin, a gift  
from the Blackfeet;  
exotic  
and not an inch over 5í2Ē
 
ďNo one wants to tangle
with your Mama
Ē,
my dad would say proudly;
I often wonder how  
he could have missed
the rage behind her smile -
her perfect teeth holding back
daggers
 
cushioned in the shade  
on my bed of soft lawn,
I can see her through the window;
she is laughing, mouth open  
head back;  
her eyes twinkling
full of fire and sly smiles;
she played dumb to keep peace
but she couldnít hide  
her slick humor  
 
she brought me cantaloupe,
cut in half, seeds scooped out
smoothing my hair -
raven as her own;
our matching eyes of onyx,
murky irises, unreadable
in the shade
 
I was hers
 
she snapped a picture
with her brand new  
Polaroid camera;
I was sad she didnít  
use the flash -  
I loved the burned boxes
 
I held that photograph of her
for far longer  
than she ever resembled it ~
I wanted to believe  
in forever;
but you and I know  
by now
nothing ever is
 
...except, perhaps
love  
 
a choice, a verb
not lust or admiration,
not even respect or adoration
holds the cosmosí attention
the way we do when we
decide
 
Intention is sempiternal;
it is everything

 
I have let go
finally
of that moment  
whereby I defined her
without accepting
the whole of her
 
and all that remains  
is
here,  
now
 
resting
 
in the lush peace
of my grandmotherís yard,
listening to my mother laugh

Sempiternal Love
Can only be
Granted by
The creator
If he exists
With humans
It is just
Wishful thinking
