the miracle of you #poem #poetry #published

the moon’s right-hand
pours soul into my flesh
pigeons’ wings bring scents of lilac blooms
the air gets drunk with poetry
statuary women of the water
flaunt their hair

within the loneliness of you
my heart
rotates five equinoxes on a wooden spindle
your eyes pour flesh into my soul
my body germinates the sounds of growing leaves
I wash my hands into the waters of Guadalquivir
in the scented night of those who never sleep
I say
I love you
and in one single breath
our wedding is transformed
in an enraptured death

was it the moon?
was it the morning dew?
perhaps it was the miracle of you

  1. Good morning G. Your timing is impeccable. I was about to step out to enjoy the day.

    This was one of the most gorgeous things you have ever written. (I know, I sound like a broken record.) But that is what happens when one reads the poetry and prose of a master.
    As always, the flow, images, and sound (when read outloud)… stunning, breathtaking, and quite captivating.

    “with the loneliness of you” This entire poem resonated.

    1. Good morning Drew.

      Aw.. thank you for your kind comment ans your praise. You know how much it means to me (I sound like a broken record :))

      I don’t want to keep you long. Have a wonderful day in NYC and may the spring be your muse.
      Take care.

      1. Thank you for your lovely wishes, but landed in the Sunshine state yesterday. It is sunny and approaching high 80s today.

        Your writing is as brilliant as this early morning.
        Quite inspiring (both poetry and this early morning).

        Be well G. Thanks for this amazing start to the day.

      2. AW… Are you in the sunshine state? Enjoy the 80s and say hello to the most beautiful part of the Atlantic for me. The temperature of the water must be great by now.

        Don’t forget to get a Cuban sandwich 🙂
        Have fun!

      3. Oh, that’s so sweet of you to say 🙂
        Do they sell mojitos in Orlando? lol.
        Find that pirates’ trail or something like that in the park. I enjoyed that the most.

        Thank you for being so kind and taking the time to comment. I really appreciate that Andrew.

    1. Aw… thank you from the bottom of my heart for your kind words, Shantanu! It means a lot to me that you took the time to read my poem.

  2. Wonderful poem! Right on time – a cosmic wedding is announced these days!
    “within the loneliness of you
    my heart
    rotates five equinoxes on a wooden spindle
    your eyes pour flesh into my soul”
    And these lines are spiritually splendid! 🙂

      1. It’s stormy here. Perhaps the storm will bring some wonders 🙂

  3. “…in the scented night of those who never sleep
    i say
    i love you…” you put a spell within this woven words making them alive like a fresh memory like waking up form a dream… Beautifully expressed

    1. Thank you so much, my dear Valarie. I wish you could know how dear your comments are to me. They really touch my heart. They are like a dream; like a blessing.

  4. “The moon’s right-hand/pours soul into my flesh” stupefied me. As a soulful cosmos-lover, I have definitely felt that, and now the image is a part of me. What a blessing it is to have your poetic hands and voice paint such beautifully-crafted words upon our inner canvases!

    1. I am humbled by your words. Touching my readers’ souls is the most rewarding thing that can happen to me during my journey of writing.
      Thank you from the bottom of my heart for your wonderful comment. Tonight somewhere in depths of our universe your words lit a new moon.

      1. So are yours. The phases of the moon ending up in a smile. Gorgeous 🙂

    1. Thank you so much, my dear. Your words mean so much to me. I am humbled that my words captured your beautiful heart ❤️

  5. So good! I myself like writing poetry, but I’m having a writers block right now. I have Dystonia, so I like to use that as a source of inspiration to write. Mind checking my blog out? It’s mainly going to be about life’s blessings and my miracle journey with Dystonia
