THE FIREFLY SMILED

THE FIREFLY SMILED

A Poem by kublakhan27
"

For the Queen of the dancing fireflies...08 05 14

"
Our respective promenades aligned
in the lime green expanse spread out
over an eavesdropping meadow
of prismatic memories
Feathers of poetic grass danced
in the splashes of kaleidoscopic dew
that coagulated to the tune
of fate's intermezzo breeze

In a bowl of cupped hands
you encased a member of the colony
of fireflies chaperoning the encounter
of marauding souls searching
for the purpose of tomorrow
A conscientious smile of magenta
preened upon your lips as I tilted
to immerse in its illumination

Suddenly I felt my weight elude me
Gravity rescinded its embedded obligation
Tomorrow's embryo untangled
the placenta fostering mortality's allotted form
Lemon yellow manifested in
my anatomic morph unbeknownst to me
until my effort to embrace you flickered on
the surface of vibrating little wings
swimming in the pillow of the redefined air
and we glowed in our first eye contact
through the synchronized suns
of our bioluminescent incarnations

See, I knew you would still be smiling and it seems also dancing.... hmmm, perhaps someone needs to "chaperone" if you are gonna do all this "fireflying"... HA!!

Enjoyed the image of these lines Steve: "Feathers of poetic grass danced
in the splashes of kaleidoscopic dew
that coagulated to the tune
of fate's intermezzo breeze" nice touch that "kaleidoscope dew"....

And I might also add, I think Frieda is smiling and firefly dancing too... There is no Dali here, just you and not surreal, but REAL!!!

I knew this was for Frieda as soon as I saw the title and what a great poem. Must be great to have a Muse like Frieda. She is a wonderful woman and friend to us all. Lovely poem, Steve!

I will forever view fireflies in a much different light. Maybe through a kaliedescope, then I might see them in the wonderful fashion that you do Kublakhan27. This danced and sang and filled the page with magic. I really enjoyed this today.
