Treasure Island

Fay Slimm

(Ageless. / in Cornwall U.K.)

A Pure Love.

As the snowdropp sea of glistening white
Envelopes and amazes me, I, standing
Here in a woodland clearing think of mighty
Love. This waving scene of purity hangs
It's every head of gleam shyly downward
In a modest pose, but lift each face and
Look at love so pure it takes us forward
In accepting states of grace that random
Fate never planned, but rather Godly love
Created. They glow with light, and scented
Subtly, are as fresh as dawn. Just above
This ocean of delight hangs, relentless,
January sky which now threatens rain.
Pure love is snowdropp white and gives itself.
I must away but I will come again
To find a presence here which can be felt.

    Such innocuous, delicate flowers and yet, en masse, they transform the consciousness of those with quiet minds and open hearts. Your poet's eye is sharp and focused. Your poet's heart is full. Your poet's spirit shines in every line. Love, Allie ♥ ♥ ♥ ♥ (Report) Reply

Poem of the Day

poet Henry David Thoreau

My books I'd fain cast off, I cannot read,
'Twixt every page my thoughts go stray at large
Down in the meadow, where is richer feed,
And will not mind to hit their proper targe.
