In Beauty

In beauty we dwell
Blooming stark from spring,
Who moves with flight,
Seasons the air
In our abode
Concrete as gleam
Novelised with boons
Built in rock-like base
To glow as Eden.
Our hands knitted
With bond fixed glue-like,
Rendered firm as steel.

Close as we nurture
Our hearts ring-mutual,
Like in the garden
To sprout as flowers free
To ascend and sing.
No how the earthquakes,
The volcanoes,
The hurricanes,
The tsunamis,
The forest fire,
Can ever sever
The cord of our love.

    A lovely verse as I stroll through your garden seeing and feeling as my senses are teased! A pleasure to read.

    TRULY NICE but the line that says
    'Can ever sever The cord of our love' causes me to disagree.

    In this riot, i pray that nothing ever breaks the cord of love in the mighty name of Jesus. Time has come to have the right foundations of the GODLY institution built on the solid ROCK; Jesus.

    How is this my dear?

    B the way do you ever read any of my poems?

    The poem delivers a very romantic and creative view on love. It is wonderful how you can uncover love and fantasy out of nature. Nice imagery. Nice poem. I like your style.

    In beauty we dwell
    Blooming stark from spring, ... yes its true- the image says beauty as blooming from spring (flowers, green leaves, grasses) fullness of nature.

    nice imagery...

    however in the last part of the poem are nature's furry.
    and the truth again, 'love' is beyond all of these becasue everything has its meaning and reason. just like the typhone its can damage property and coust life but it has a deeper reason which only nature can reveal to her children, and to me it seems that we part of her that anytime she will sommond us into her bossom.

    nice poem
