"And your very flesh shall be a great poem..."

~ Walt Whitman

 

 

We form a villanelle

Two rhymes, in you I dwell…

Alliteration on my lips…

 

Creating liquid lines

Dripping meter in rich designs

Poetic honey sensuality…

 

Your Haiku hands

A 5-7-5 rhythm we understand

Couplets of pressing forms…

 

A stanza in your arms

Laughing in your limerick charms

Quatrain nights of bliss…

 

Read no lyric sweeter

Dancing in iambic-pentameter

Free verse over me…

 

My fingers reach

For your sonnet skin of peach

Your lullaby-lyric lips…

 

My words a rune

Uttered in a prose blue moon

An epic to your beauty…

 

And in your eyes

I listen for unwritten sighs

You are my poetry…

wit and beauty - intertwined --- I love the beginning the middle and the end --- the nod to Whitman is a nice touch -- words becomeing flesh becoming words again - we are what we say - an incarnation -- and what better time to read this than on the verge of Christ mass day ~
