The Cypress

The Cypress

A Poem by Light



I think of You

as I hear the winds

Play with the woods outside

watching the branches lean

my heart leans

with each leaf that floats away

warm whispers from You

imagining myself to see the sky

with Your own eyes

 

You've become

my endless Joy

the fountain of tenderness

the reason why  I smile in silence

and cry with words

my inspiration

to turn the pain into beauty

and feel the essence of true love

between the tears and Your eyes

to endure

as I vision Your lips

uttering sweet love

Sealed forever

with a kiss over my heart

 

I close my eyes

and feel Your breath

as I hear the winds

I close my eyes

and see Your face

as I feel the wounds

I've learned from You

how to know I'm blessed

blending You with my heartbeats

and bleed You into my bliss.

GH,
There are love poems, and there are LOVE POEMS … and, you know which one this is for a poet like me, who feels every bliss-filled nuance of each heavenly metaphor, so vividly portrayed by your living, breathing, spiritually imbued ink.
No one paints romance and creatively imaginative imagery upon the canvas of our hearts and minds in the uniquely original ways you do.
I cannot say enough how deeply this work in sheer enthrallment touches, but know I simply adore this as one of my all-time favorites from your golden pen … thank you for sharing it, and that beautiful, thoughtfully chosen, and displayed picture speaks volumes, too, setting the perfect mood … bringing it all to life.

Warmest, most appreciative hugs to You! ⁓ Richard : )

Thank You again :)
Beautiful, GH, absolutely beautiful. This one reaches in with a warm, welcoming hug : )
As always, I love the gentle ambience and how your wonderful metaphors and images grab the reader's heart. This special poem, perhaps my favorite of all I've read by you, dances and sings with such life and vibrance. Too, I love how the unity of two lovers really shines through in your last stanza.
Lovely visual presentation to match. In all, this is incomparably breathtaking!

- William Liston
(PS: Did you intend to capitalize "Play" in the third line of the first stanza and "Sealed" in the second-to-last line of the second stanza? Also, in the second stanza, did you mean "as I *envision* your lips."

I see two golden threads winding through this profound and graceful poem-Divine love and human love. One bleeds into the other. Bliss...pain..touch..rapture. Both steeped in natural beauty. Both blessed...
