Charles M. Moore

(1953 june / Glasgow Scotland.)

Where the passion flower grows


Lay down on your pillow
and turn the lights down low
let me take you to the garden
where the passion flower grows

Close your eyes and enter dreams
as love's emotion sets the scene
and flitters through the garden
where the passion flower grows

Touch the tender petals
of the flower as she grows
a tentative endeavour
as your feelings overflow

Let me draw you to the place
where ecstasy can be embraced
the beauty of the garden
where the passion flower grows

Feel your mind exploding
in the heavy scented air
experience the shiver
as your captured unaware

A little touch of heaven
where imagination flows
the valley in the garden
where the passion flower grows.

    The passion flower is, indeed, an exotic and fragrant bloom. It travels far to find a suitable place to climb, flourishing from shaded root to sunlit glory. A passionate and beautiful flower of a poem. (Report) Reply

    going into the interior
    universe of delight
    and then the inevitable happens
    swift joy
    lingers
    then
    refuses to leave
    a fine poem (Report) Reply

poet Christina Georgina Rossetti

Where sunless rivers weep
Their waves into the deep,
She sleeps a charmed sleep:
Awake her not.
Led by a single star,
She came from very far
