on air windblown




through shimmering clouds
she hears a whisper
a murmur calling her name
that reaches down
with soft white rays
brushes her skin and lays claim
to the chambers
of her heart
his essence rises through
the misty tendrils
caressing her soul
affirming his love as dew
touches her cheeks
with his tears
from a world that’s not her own
devotion endures
eternally
their love on air windblown

  6. Excelent poem, it is elegant and romantic, and talks about love in a really stilish way, which is not an easy think to make.

    What A coincidence I just made a post called mad love where we discuss, although not that beautifully writen as you do, the same topics you talk about in this text. Here are some extracts from the post:

    In the thrill and passion of a new romance, it is only natural to see a lover through rose-colored glasses. We go out of our way to see only what we want to see, filtering our perceptions through romantic expectations and dreams. This optimistic filtering of reality is called "idealization.

    What is interesting to me is the period in a long-term relationship when the lust segues into the more romantic love with affection.

    My opinion is that the fantasy about the other person being perfect disapears and you start seeing the other more like it is. Which I think it is a fantastic stage also. Maybe even better than the fantasy.

    Hope you enjoy the pieces of text, if you want to check it all it is at: http://singyourownlullaby.blogspot.com/2009/08/madly-in-love.html

  14. This one gave me goosebumps, Shadow. Just stunning!
    A mystical song of love...

    "soft white rays brushes her skin and lays claim to the chambers of her heart" ...just wow!

    and..."with his tears from a world that's not her own"..."devotion endures"...

    sorry i'm paraphrasing so much here, it's just your words have had quite the effect on me this day!
