another poet is born

I dreamed of
and you
secrets of the night
of stars stretched over
us like blankets
of ebon light

jealous of lovers
and lovers of poets
we ruled heaven
like gods awakening
into skin,

eyes of rain

i tasted your salt
i tasted your blood,
i fastened myself to your roots
like a ball of earth,

triumphant with the spirit of the lily
and the rose

to rivers of stones
I give birth.

There is such a dreamy and ethereal feel to this birthing. I don't know about yesterday's poem, but this one is simply lovely.

I loved the taste of salt, blood and the fastening of self to root. Wonderfully rich with visual and emotional holds that go beyond the physical. I felt like I took a breath of fresh air.

What would I change? Not a thing. This is simply beautiful poetry. ~Pamela

Every now and then, a piece of free verse comes at me and says..."please listen, I've something powerful to say".
"Like Gods awakening into skin."
This is quite beautiful.
