Seed's Poetry Corner: A Love Letter

Seed's picture
The poem is the explanation for the poem, I think; Only stopping to note that this has been on my mind.
A note from a later date: I suppose I should at least give some context, for a reader besides myself. As Sage, my love, is so often away, I've tried my hoof at writing letters to her, and she seems most fond of the notion. And so...

A Love Letter

I read the breeze that rushes
along the feathers of birds aflight
as an omen that, rising, hushes
me to silence. I think I might

take pen to sheet of bark pulled tight
and thinly beaten to take ink.
Oh, to use that voice you praise and write
to form between our distant hearts a link.

When the moment's come, I balk, I shrink;
my mind draws naught but clumsy, idle words,
scratched out out and pressed too far, I think:
I've no letter to send, even on the flight of birds.

Except to say simply "You are in my thoughts,
sending my breath into sighs, my words into knots."

Well, I am writing a novel at

Well, I am writing a novel at the moment ^^
But thank you -- I'm always happy to receive such fine praise.

..Of course, it occurs to me now that there is rather some work Seed's commentary could be doing, in terms of explaining context -- I've let that slip some, and should edit accordingly.
