Things Said To Be Ineffable

Spread the love

Your
image
haunts me and
silently sings
as a roseate sunset floods the sea
hopelessly I sigh your name into wind
soothing sweet ache
and in vain
compose
self
thoughts
plague me
day and night
I kiss the sky
love’s a storm that arrives unexpected

In
heart of
emerald
sea whisper dreams
lest the stars tonight flutter into dust
I stand amidst calm – chaos of city
understand woe
as a friend
without
help
feel
the sun
soft, stealing
breath of evening
as possibilities spread before us

    It’s cool how the appearance of your longer tetractys poem flows in curves, like the dress in the painting. Really beautiful. Also, I love “love’s a storm that arrives unexpected.” Such a simple observation, wonderful.

    Ineffable, indeed–love and loss and kissing the sky!
    “love’s a storm that arrives unexpected” Indeed! Thanks.
