At first sight

You sprung in me like chrysanthemums pearly,
with an unexpected sense of calm,
rounded petals blushing, inculcating into blood
reciting a prayer of psalm.

Would that the sky lend me its grey,
in exchange for velvet emotions that pour—
I feel you despite the distance,  the rest assured
peculiar this world at four o clock in the morn.

With a desire to serve, to belong and adore,
I can imagine no other throat—
such is my state, heaven and torture, one and the same
dare I venture here and quote.

I knew long before you did of longing,
like darkness both intimate and frightening
Care to explore? And want completely,
as season grows with eager boughs ripening.

Lucy is our guest host today and wishes us to pen
a ballad. (I hope I got it right!) 🙂
