Beauty from a far

O’ distant flower

By Jack Ivey

 

O’ distant flower, perfect bloom

Thy beauty full is shown

I stand beneath yon crescent moon

Yet, I am not alone

 

O’er moments saved my heart so deep

I breathe this evening air

To whisper thoughts of endless keep

With dreams that thee shall share

 

So bright the beams that meet my face

Of shadows long behind

If but your lips my love doth trace

In longings sent to find

 

I drink of sweet desire's wine

My cup doth overflow

To reach my arms as you are mine

In soft reflection's glow

 

O’ come to me my petals pure

My skin your touch doth need

Of only you I do adore

Emotions breath I  feed

 

O’ silent evening dances round

This valley high above

For on this night my heart hath found

Your precious perfect love

Thank you so much my friend.
Jack this one is by far my favorite of the last couple of days.. (not counting our collab of course) This just took on a life of its own as I read.. The feel was mesmerizing.. The imagery strong, metaphor beautifully placed.. From start to finish just perfect... A Rose always loves to read about flowers being this special.. Thank you for the rr.. This is another going into the favs. xo Rose

Thanks so muc Rose. I am happy you enjoyed this. Your smile is my reward.
You realize you are the only writer on this site I allow to get away with RRing me romantic poetry, right? xD Not my favorite genre, you know, but I am always blown away by your pieces, Jack. You have such a romantic soul and smooth voice...I'm so pleased with myself that I was smart enough to make you the exception to the rule *laugh* Really beautiful work. Thank you for sharing it with us.

I sank into this one, it just lulls the senses into surrender.

Thank you so much. I do truly appreciate your kind words.
Your writing is so 'other worldly' I feel like I've been swept back in time to a more gentle era where love is still real and true romance exists in the hearts of man. Beautiful Jack.

So romance isn't dead after all. I feel like I am dissapearing into the words as I read this, such compassionate writing.
