A Poem by An owl on the moon

You are my poetry…































"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…

I read this poem twice and ended up saying "I LOVE this" out loud; so suffice it to say, this poem is exceptionally well done.

Thank you so much for stopping here.. and for your encouraging words!
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 ~
