Pearls At Your Feet

I search for expression of mind
All I wanted to say that I could not
Least you see by a cruel gaze,
And wipe from your mind.

Swallowed in bliss,
And sunset berry kisses
I, your secret admirer
Nameless on these pages.

Your eyes are like sunlight
Melting away dew drops of my soul,
Breathless, I watch you intently
I suppose, outside on the phone
Conversing with a friend simply.

Touched by a rose
Once free of thorns,
A memory
Sweet, innocent, and kind
If I should die-
I would be thankful to have known you.

You affect me by your movements
Every inch of you is beautiful
Passionate lines fall rapidly
Rains of pearls at your feet.

Your summer dress, I confess
Last I saw you, seductive
It’s my tragedy
Like sea-blue threads of tapestry
Your skirt mesmerized me.

How can I find my deepest thoughts
Secrets to your heart
Gem, delicate like porcelain
On November month.

Topaz, poetic ballads, strands
As sonnet sequence, listen
The depths of me since
Your name first mentioned.

I want to give endless motions
A profuse of notions
Shades of each emotion,
And strings, romantic, unbroken.

I can take you to ecstasy
Cause cascades of intensity,
And still be your dream lover
On beds of jasmine oceans.

You don’t know how you affect me
When I hear Cassie I freeze
Love’s shadow drives my soul
The sight of you takes hold of me.

Your fingertips drip of beauty
You have me in a trance
As when sun rain angels dance
On clouds of gold.

And though we will never meet again
Your smile was enough
One moment in your presence
Lingered with a touch.

I disappear into a sea of people
Again in the shadows,
But I wanted you to know me
Among the changing faces.

Woman of my thoughts.

Poem of the Day

poet John Clare

I love to see the old heath's withered brake
Mingle its crimpled leaves with furze and ling,
While the old heron from the lonely lake
Starts slow and flaps its melancholy wing,
