LIFE IS BEAUTIFUL



LIFE IS BEAUTIFUL

 early morning
no warning,
she drifted away
into break of day

merged herself
in mountain fog,
beyond where lay
swirling sands and
depths of sea 

my misting eyes followed
her into dawn's wetness

she without warning
always returned
on day four wearing nearly
what she wore...before

beaten and bloody--
one shoe gone,
stockings...missing.
whole body muddy
torn dress showing
nothing on, beneath

this time, walked away
to finally stay on distant shore
she suddenly, stealthily,
stole out from under
our warm place.

she kissed my face
with that judas embrace
and then gone
from now on

now another, who
leaves for south shore
beyond island's mountain.
she kisses my face, smiles and
says, "back in four--or more!"

in gladness i live, love, exist
west of mountain, fog, mist,
await sun's full reflection
and, without warning...
her wet kiss--
everywhere

  4. Okay, I am a little lost on this one. Through stanza four, I was with you, then I tumbled off into space somewhere and got lost. Then I think I found you again in the final stanza. Forgive my thickness. :)

  6. Your poetry always allows so much for the imagination! <3 Sometimes I imagine a woman, sometimes mother nature, sometimes spirits and memories of past loves.
