Lest I Forget ~

Let me feel this heart break open to sound 
to music playing everywhere, in everything 
from birdsong to baby's cry to laughter 
to the bursting of seed pods, suck of the bee _

the footfall of deer eating my garden 
reeds sipping water on the banks of sheltered ponds
waves slipping over the bar drinking sand 
the rustle and scrape of you dressing in the morning _

Let me see cloud feathers turn pink, the moon's wink 
trees blazing in Autumn, the gray of distant rain 
out over a freshly ploughed field, dirt kicked by wind 
pain in a young man's eyes when misunderstood _

see the way a smile carries everything higher 
tears catching light, the tiniest of flowers radiant 
your hand holding mine when life is too heavy or wonderful 
and words have shed their meaning _

Let me know the secrets, the doubts, the hidden 
inside of burrows, the nightlife of foxes 
grace in the wing, a sweet chord
blended to a voice echoing the ache of life, the joy _

reveal the pattern of desires, the weave and woof 
of change, growth of a cell, the give and take of love 
lest I forget 
the very source of my never-ending thirst for life, for love _

  5. I read the poem several times, Margie, and my response has to be, "Oh, I want all these sensations and experiences, too." The fullness of life revealed to me - as written by you.

  11. There will never be a day where I will read your poetry and not feel the magic that you write, prose that goes through my heart and stays, and I go back to read it again because surely it couldn't have been this, this art of life and love and song and tears, and I love it with my whole being ....

    PS Sorry angel I couldn't visit yesterday early enough but wow I'm going to read it again, no one, no one in the world is a better poet than you, your words lift me up so high, high up to the sky
