Love Makes The World Go Flat Poem by Tom Billsborough

Love Makes The World Go Flat

Rating: 3.4

Love makes the world go flat,
Sparkling seascapes sweeping out
From rolling downs of wide horizons.
Shimmering skies absorbing eyes.
And the orisons of a lone lark
Suspended overhead signal
Our desire and hope to gather in
The supportive silence.
We grow like giant statues
In our love, so tall, so motionless,
In our embrace.

We grow like giant statues In our love, so tall, so motionless, In our embrace...... is so beautiful. Very nice.

A good play on words 'love makes the world go round'. You suggest the negative side of love in a tour de force.

I like the name Wild Flower. My garden is full of them, not to mention the frogs sunbathing on stones near the pond! Must check out your poems soon.

Wonderful. I too very often long to be embraced by absolute silence, having to put up with too much noise these days (right now there's a van going about with a megaphone blaring endlessly about their fresh-from-the-farm eggs!) . I will rate it with a 10, though I know Tom doesn't need my points, having already busted the scales. On second thought, if the blokes from 'Spinal Tap' did manage to go to 11 in their amps, why can't we go to 7 here? Will have to talk to the webmaster about that. Only drawback: now I'll have to keep on reading more of Tom's poems, just when I had it in my mind to sit down to work! ... Rod

Hi Rod, just you wait, I've drafted out five of Alejandro's poems. I'll give you the day off tomorrow! Generous of me. But we'll blame Alejandro, He's a really great poet. Intoxicating!

Thank you, Bharati. It can be all-encompassing, And even, though she died, love carries on and on.
