* David - Poem by Adryan Rotica

Your name still echoes
in stars-
gems, cool against
inky blackness
where space looks at earth
and earth peers back at me
inside your binary planets
blue as frost, melting me
to an overture of mossy sodden
stones, drenched
in tune to our winter stream
while hickory breaths
steal away our silence
filling lungs deep into
our hearts
merging warmth
as we break our
stony crosses
and love so wholly
in the freshness of
our youth.

(For D.H., Wilkinsonville, Mass.; ''Qualm'')

    A lot of beautiful sensory images, Adrienne, and I really felt the release, the freeing, in the last few lines! One of the best closures I've ever read, I think. (Report) Reply

    This is what a poem should be...unusual, rich imagery, little pieces of a poet's soul, and an ending where the reader says with a voice choked in emotion, 'Oh YES! '
