Maybe

Looking into the cavern

of my soul

there lies

my inner most

desires

dreams

and loves

But it is sometimes hard to define.

How are you?

And I say fine.

Because the cavern

it is

farther down than

I remember

and its too difficult to

to climb

and uncover

the lost gems of my past

hopes and dreams

How are you?

And I call

Hello?

 


After reflecting and meditating on my personal dreams, I have realized that it is hard for me to define what my goals once were. Although I don’t feel lost at the moment, I am ready and waiting to understand what my purpose really is in this life. Drifting through moments of maybe and who knows, I have found joy in letting go of the past and focusing on the present. Photo by marc liu on Unsplash.

 

Colors of Love: Violet

You called me

once

twice

three times

before I knew that it

was my name

on your lips

Where are you waiting for me?

.

I called your name

once

twice

three times

before I knew

that it was you

I wanted to choose

Where are you waiting for me?

.

Galaxies and far distant planets

aligned

so we met

in that rich velvet light

almost violet

as we sang into each others

souls and

tasted the wine

rippled sweet riches

that only a love

can provide

 


This is poem 7 in a series of poems titled “Colors of Love”. I felt like writing about love but also having some sort of structure to my inspiration regarding this word. So I used ROYGIBV (Red,orange,yellow,green,indigo,violet) as inspiration for each day. Luckily there are seven colors and seven days of the week: each day corresponds with a color.  Photo by JR Korpa on Unsplash.

Colors of Love: Indigo

Crisp apple bites

and warm pumpkin pie

all remind me of that

blue indigo sky

where the horizon met the sun

and kissed the dawn

with pale colors of love.

where we looked at the stars

before the day began

and dreamed up

every possibility

our lives could hold.

how your denim jacket

felt against my cheek as I

warmed my face in the crook

of your neck.

where you told me the fears you had as a child

and how you never thought

you could be a man

where I told you my heart’s true desire

to live as a storyteller

beyond my time.

we laughed at our dreams

as the night sky faded to light

as the inky dyed hours turned to

a symphony of morning doves.

Colors of Love: Blue

As the shadows

fill my vision

of the misty sandy shores

I wonder how far away

you really are

Even this rain

makes me wish

for the blue

deep blue of your eyes

The thunder and

lightning

never relenting stormy

emotions

that swell with all the fervor

of a mad

typhoon

When will you arrive?

With battered bridges and sails tied down

in the raging ocean

I fall into the dark

deep blue sea

only to forget

your siren song

Colors of Love: Green

Quickly

I jumped

to conclusions

when I read

your eyes

as you looked down

at our hands

held tightly

as if to say

“There’s no reason

to be jealous

when you know

I am already

your chosen kind”

.

Even as your smile curled

Even as I knew the truth

I picked up a ginko leaf

from the ground

.

“Never depart from me

while the trees shade our home

constantly”

Colors of Love: Yellow

The dew clung to the

light pale petals

as I hummed a hopeful

song to you

clouds drifted toward the sun

.

Your maritime life

never gave you the patience

to stumble into rest

.

I noticed how the clean light

smoothed any wrinkles

your eyes and forehead

held

so many stories you could tell

but never did

.

Will you remember my heart song

even in your dreams?

.

The easy way your breath fell

the warm way the rays slid

toward your face

and I wondered at

the sunshine of it all.

Colors of Love: Orange

As the rain falls

upon the sidewalk,

I snuggle closer to

you

Your arm holding me close,

closer than

I thought

possible.

And I notice

the light

filter through

your ruddy orange

umbrella

giving you

a warm sunny look

that made me

giggle back

at your smile.

Colors of Love: Red

In dreams

I see

how your warm heart

beats against my palm

and burns through

my ardent defenses

You dance like a flame

Mouth and lashes

making

my mind

melt

the pinks, blushes and red hues

of your love

tickle each and every thought

I whisper

only

so that you can hear

“What time is it?”
