night-blooming lovers

file0001371332238 maybe a thing about particles and waves
or wave-particles and the way light works
and moves, the way soulmates’ eyes ignite
into stardust, the way some ancient god

smiled and blinked, flicked an able wrist
to strew some billion stars across a darkly
barren sky, then asked his goddess to
suspend the yellow moon, a caress so

softly lighted, it stirred the hopeful hearts of
night-blooming lovers into endless devotion,
though for sure the years run like the cheetah
and soon-or-late all hearts quake asunder,
just as sure as moonlight and stardust and
the way a true love fills in the fault lines

  1. Ah, so much to love in this one, and so full of the spirit and passion that love evokes. Whatever Gods and Goddesses created the universe, they surely must have done it out of love of beauty and wonder. I have read it thrice already and could read it many more times! Well penned, Jamie. 🙂
