Metamorphosis

Metamorphosis

A Poem by jacob erin-cilberto

Metamorphosis  

 

 

 

peaceful

in her garden,

she grows comfort

 

i pick greens 

of her kindness

her demeanor blossoms

 

in fall,

in winter

she stands tall

 

emitting a certain warmth

that ripens

with an early October breeze

 

i love the fruits

of her intensity

no storm can eradicate

 

she is beauty

she is a dozen roses

in one

 

opening to the song of the wind

i am a cloud

moved to a standstill

 

as i rain within her

smile

and become a clear sky.

A gentle velvety romantic write...and of course the metaphor is splendid. "I am a cloud moved to a standstill.".....heavy sigh! I really enjoy your romantic writes, Jacob. You don't write a lot of them. Lydi**

Something to learn from you when describing nature's beauty... It's so flowy and smooth.... I pick greens of her kindness.... Amazing

Again, your writing really brings the reader into a whole other world. I love the mentions of different seasons. Whenever poems happen to bring different times up, it feels so much more personal like I'm actually experiencing the story. Especially when it's so specific, like 'early October breeze.' It paints a mental picture that's so nice you reread the poem. Even the title of the poem adds another layer to it.
