I've seen some truly wondrous sights 

Total eclipse the northern lights 

I've held a hatching turtle in my hand 

A rare blue moon and one blood red

Creatures upon an ocean bed

A mother nurse her newborn baby lamb


I witnessed this magnificence 

Pale into insignificance 

And all she had to do was flash a smile 

She looked me in the eye and said 

I'm not expecting us to wed

But let's indulge each other for a while 


By the arm I was taken 

A feeling of bliss 

In my head 

Was a loosening vice


In her arms I was given 

A velvety kiss 

She had led me 

Into paradise

              I found that reading this poem aloud gave it a whole new dimension. Speak it quickly and feel its intensity. Speak it slowly and savour every nuance of its beauty. Stunning!

                'I witnessed this magnificence
                Pale into insignificance'
                To have such a deep love and reverence for a person is so beautiful, yet incredibly difficult I imagine. Your poetry always describes the visceral dichotomy so incredibly. Sometimes discreetly sometimes raw, all times brilliant!

                  I am humled by such a positive and kind comment
