First IPad Poem

If

 

What if, instead of dying flowers, perfume

smelled like mountaintops, like granite

 

and fir-filtered wind?  Breezes lift our feet

from the rock and fragrance-scented air

 

buoys us up over golden rows of mountains.

You laugh like a child taking his first step

 

out onto the taut surface of water

and instead of sinking, we skate

 

on that tensile surface that quivers

like my heart when you reach

 

the long pin freathers of your wings

and wrap them all light and tickle

 

and remember around me.

I'm sorry, allow me to translate my comment above:

"I read this over and over again. It always tugs at my heart strings. Such beautiful prose, thoughts sweet and tender."

I love the romance languages - no pun intended. I guess from my scientific background in Latin. I also might surprise you with a snippet of Russian or Japanese. HA!

Best wishes, ... D.
