Wings Touching

Post by audiofool » Mon Aug 07, 2017 1:33 am

On the 24th of the seventh month
there was hiding
and there was seeking

in the vast unknown reaches
touched by destiny
waves cresting and peaking

a caterpillar on a green leaf
a rose in full bloom
gardens of pleasure take notice

swollen, sunken eyes now aglow
with a light internal
toad still on the lotus

on the 24th of the seventh month
there was day, there was night
and dawn so delicate

in the window of heart and soul
I saw you standing
wearing the silver amulet

iridescent orbs compel me forward
to meet you midflight
in a kiss for the ages

our bed is ready and waiting
the hour approaches
love's eternal wages.

Beautiful imagery.

This feels to me like a tribute...to the birth & life of love and to the 24th of the seventh month.

I was taken by these two verses:
"a caterpillar on a green leaf
a rose in full bloom
gardens of pleasure take notice

swollen, sunken eyes now aglow
with a light internal
toad still on the lotus"

I ended up googling and reading about toads on lotus flowers. :grin:

Thank you, nekot, for your thoughtful reply. It is indeed a tribute, as you noted.

Google has some cool pics of toads on lotus flowers.

Things appear as it is or as they are when the boat stops rocking or flows one with the sea.
Now I'm recalling my surfing days! I hope your prayer be heard and fulfilled.

It seems to me now that the only way is to let Nature take care of it all
or probably it's ever doing so.

Quiet, also vibrant images. Thanks for sharing.

Thanks, soular. "...let Nature take care of it all." Good advice, friend. I intend to do just that.

Thanks, heinzs. Inspired by people and events which make life an extraordinary journey.

Love to all. :angel:
