he

he

A Poem by Lydia


artwork by jose pacheco






the dandelions he picks
instantly become roses
he

finds meaning in café windows
then writes poetry with clouds
on the inky sky


kisses my mind with inspiration
tickles my tongue
with the perfect mélange
of naughty and nice


intrigues my curiosity
with a smile
makes me blush the color of wine
till i feel my own pulse beneath my skin


dresses me in acceptance
accessorizes me with understanding
hands me the carnelian sunset
he loves me

Dandelions becoming roses just because they are from him - says it all really Lydia.

love this line -
"kisses my mind with inspiration"

and I loved 'carnelian sunset' - another new word today - yehaa!

the final stanza is so filled with what it means to be not just the lover but also the friend, the confidant, the support that we all need.
excellent wordsmithing dear poet !

"He", the pronoun, is heavier now Lydia, "that male one who is neither speaker or hearer" (Webster).
But you have taken the word, unplowed it from the land of human segmentation and made it
spiritual. And only a few among us know how.

"tickles my tongue
with the perfect mélange
of naughty and nice".

The "he" you speak of never brags about himself. Never agonizes over the football team
or how many beers are left in the fridge. Your "he" is the he of inspiration. And how wonderful is that?
I love this.......dana
