~As I Recall

~As I Recall

A Poem by Frieda P

...and you fluttered by me,
       the sweet little thing that you were
 landed in a puddle of crimson tears
             that had pooled around my feet
the moon was full and the air still crisp
             yet I couldn't see clearly
you shared with me the secrets of the ages,
            how colors dance,  that fireflies & stars are related, 
                      and feathers are really secret messages from angels
i listened in utter amazement 
                  my eyes no longer a somber shade of grief
you touched my hand 
         and the universe had begun to sparkle
when you touched my heart 
              is when the music began to happen
                        i danced fearlessly
 on these puddles  that had become crystalline  comfort
my spirit roared with the fervor of galaxy's exploding
   a simple moment,
        a shared touched, a revival of soul
 it was then I realized the dead of winter had passed, 
spring had sprung wildflowers
     colored in zest, painted by sunshine
     that danced in fields of liquid fire
 my rapture was ignited
       in shades of destiny & hues of lusty acceptance
as I recall now, I never even caught your name

Would the woeful secret whispers of the universe be love? The ecstatic jumping of two spirits longing to join, as if destined? Love, at first site?
Twists like yours simply amaze me, and I scarcely have the brain to match. Wondrous poetry, as are all of them~

a simple moment,

You do this so well. This bursting emotion.

Wow! So beautifully crafted phrases and lines, that tell about the mother nature's changing forms :) Though I like more of the rhyming style of poetry, still this "free form poetry" was a pleasure to read and kept me attracted till the very last word!

i would drop the "is" in "is when the music began to happen" It interrupts the smooth flow in this piece. You always write with such great imagery and description. Thanks for sharing!
