Like Love


The gentle breeze,
working to soften & appease
the angry heat
at the height of summer,
is much like love.

The arduous & gruelling crawl
of miniscule
trying to return to their nests,
is much like negotiating
the sea
of dull humanity,
the traffic of passion;
to get to you.

Colour saturating the blank canvas,
bleeding into the thick paper;
creating landscapes or
abstract visions & dreams,
is much like your succulent smile;
revealing more than you care to admit,
when you think it’s full of guile,
but actually
it’s travelled through the final mile
from your eyes to mine

    wonderful imagery!
    indeed, so much of attraction
    comes down to that 'final mile'
    in a fleetingly shared, 'enticing smile'
    of our magnetically instinctive, communication
    and its gift of a meaningful: connection...
    (another, unapologetic - modern ode
    to that romantic wondrousness of love
    thanks for sharing, dear poet)

      Haha I know I should write about something other than day...probs not. But it's so boundlessly fascinating to me. There is so little I understand about anything. I don't have a discerning eye to turn upon many things. I feel my frequent state is one of constant astonishment. Like that wonderful lyric 'how strange it is to be anything at all...'

      • L. B. Mek

        I rather read a lifetime of meaningful love poetry
        than a single, 'wannabe' pseudo artistic depiction
        of ............
        do - you, dear poet! always
        live no room for belated regret πŸ’ͺ😎

          Ah I don't know if I am in love yet & if I am, it's a secret, but my poetry keeps giving me away haha. Love is different for everyone. Here's a wonderful poem on that theme:
