the miracle of you [included in my upcoming book-Passions: Love Poems and Other Writings] #poem #poetry

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. Up coming (vs upcoming) book to take you right into sprig! Yours will take me there too.
      Are the grand kids having fun? Did it snow?

       
      1. Mine now brought forward from June to May – you’ll be out there March/April (my guess?) – the snow was in the air yet no covering – the grandkids hardly lifted their eyes from their screens! Another stormy weekend ahead, so many parts of the UK still seriously flooded and the press asking ‘Boris – where are you?’ Have as good a weekend as you can do with all you need to be and do.

         
      2. Great news. So I will read you in May. Perhaps. More likely in May.
        Another stormy weekend ahead, so many parts of the UK still seriously flooded and the press asking ‘Boris – where are you?’ I am v ery sorry to hear about that, Eric. Did not read the news coming from across the pond yet.
        Thank you for the kind wishes. Have a great weekend too.
        G.

         
  5. Oh my! ❤️
    The imagery pierced right into my heart. It’s so, so beautiful, Gabriela. I’m completely enamoured by your poetry and this one goes straight to my favourites.

     
    1. Thank you so much, dear. I am so humbled by your words.
      Sending you plenty of love and happiness.
      Gabriela

       
  6. I love how the imagery echoes from one stanza to the next. The subtle tying together of unlike images is delicious. Your word choices are luxurious and playful. I am, at once and always, amazed by your gift! Much love! ☀

     
    1. And I am once and always amazed by your kind support and your beautiful commentaries. Thank you so much Brad.
      xoxo right back at you

       
    1. Thank you so much, David. I told you so many times that your praise and your generosity mean so much to me. I am going to tell you again: I am really humbled by your wonderful words and the praise. Thank you again.
      On a different note, please do not forget to keep me updated.
      Have a fabulous weekend.
      G

       
      1. You are, now and forever, welcome.

        I haven’t forgotten to keep you updated. For the past few weeks there has been no update to give. I am still in the cycle of submitting my manuscript to different people, getting rejected by some, and waiting to hear back from others. I will let you know if anything positive changes.

        You have a fabulous weekend as well.
        David

         
  7. Poetry is like love. They take over our soul and leave us crazy. They even make our forms disappear and take us to heaven asleep and the inexplicable, it is clear in its silence. Magnificent your poem. A deroche of poetic talent. Greetings.

     
    1. Ah, this is beautiful “they take over our soul and leave us crazy.” Thank you so much for your fabulous words and for the praise.
      The inexplicable; the silence…. You touched my heart this evening. Thank you. Thank you. Thank you
      May your weekend be filled with magic
      Gabriela .

       
  8. The miracle of you…. G, what complete magnificence this is. You, and this poem. I love the ending, I love the way you spin the axis of the world and our hearts like you’re spinning a globe. These lines, I read over and over.

    “within the loneliness of you
my heart
rotates five equinoxes on a wooden spindle”

    I think my heart leaps out of my chest. Five equinoxes, a miracle indeed.

    Happy weekend dear G. I hope you’re getting some rest xoxox

     
    1. Hi Al. Thank you for the reblog. Your generosity is limitless. I hope you are having a great weekend too. 🤗

       
  9. G, it is the way you paint emotions. You add texture, colors, and a depth to feelings like no one else can. Love, longing, melancholy all live and breathe in your work as if they were real life people.
    Bravo Amiga. I will always be in awe.

     
    1. Thank you from the bottom of my heart, Drew. I am thrilled you think so.
      “I will always be in awe.” And I will always be grateful to you.
      Muchas gracias amigo 🙂

      Looking forward to your next post.
      G.

       
    1. Oh, that’s very kind of you to say. Thank you from the bottom of my heart.
