Drops of love
Dripping with terror
Impatience and anger
Longing for tenderness
Waterfall of desire
As sweet as comfort
Bliss to the soul
The thirst of life
All consuming harvest
Carry my heart
Breathe into the fire
Written for Poetry Jam
I guess we are all longing for tenderness in one way or another. I like the progression in your poem, Alan, and how you end on beautiful and positive images.
i like the journey from dark to light in this….from the tension of the beginning to the relief i feel in the end….nice job on the prompt this week alan
Admittedly I am a bit confused about the drops of love dripping with terror; but the image, in the second stanza, of such bliss heartens me. And the last stanza lifts me up! Great prompt this week.
from fear of losing love to that precious light is one long but satisfying journey…nicely done..
Lovely… I especially like the 2nd verse, Alan.
At the end, things are good, right? I like how you ended up with those nice lines!
We definitely thirst for light, don’t we? The longing palpable here. k.
Beautiful words Alan ~ My favorite is the 4th stanza, breathe into the fire ~
“All consuming harvest
Carry my heart
Breathe into the fire”
…sounds very healing…nice!
loved this a lot alan..journey from dark to light is beautiful:)
I love this poem and the way it starts with dark, depressing and negative words to end with such wonderful concepts. Very nice take on the prompt, Alan! And thanks for stopping by.
Wonderful poem, Alan. Laconic and expansive at the same time.
Great stuff. I can relate to the fear turning into something positive in the end. Ever optimistic, the light will find a way to enter the darkest crevices of our minds. Hopefully. Otherwise there is chocolate.
