Game

In the game of seasons,
if you had been the fall,
I would have been the spring
to inspire you with the fragrance of my roses.

In the game of this universe,
if you had been the sun,
I would have been the rising moon
to embrace you from time
to time.

In the game of the earth,
if you had been the mountain,
I would have been the valley
to hear all the blues of your river.


In the game of thoughts,
if you had been an abstract idea,
I would have been your value of judgment
to keep safe the great wisdom's treasure.

In the game of feelings,
if you had been my love,
I would have been your lost hemisphere
to search for you and only for you.
I wouldn't stop this game.

    Here Object [You] is in upper hand than the Subject [I] … and free flowing…and symbiosing.

    poem where abstraction and the 'value of judgement' have been personificated. Well done!

    This is an outstanding one, Marieta. Perhaps the best one of yours I've read so far.
    Reminds me a little of Dickinson and Donne.
