It’s rather late on what has been an incredibly blustery Saturday, full of sidewalk music, reminiscing with childhood books, and a multitude of snuggles with a certain curly-headed, bright-eyed little girl. I wasn’t exactly sure what I wanted to share with you today, but then I stumbled upon this poem and decided on it for a few reasons…
- It uses bookish metaphors and I’ve been reading a lot of books recently.
- It talks about music and today has been full of it, from some rather unexpected corners.
- It references a sunset, and we had a softly magnificent one tonight.
So, for those reasons, here is a poem that I wrote, not really sure where I was going. But I went somewhere, and this is the result!
What a plot twist you were,
with your edelweiss soul and your waltzing eyes.
You dropped into my life with gentle, calloused hands
scattering heart-joy as you went.
I didn’t expect you,
you starry-eyed dancer,
you daughter of the dawn and all things new.
I didn’t know that I was missing
your whisper in the purpling dusk,
your lark-song of hope that soared with
wings of moonshine and midsummer madness.
When you came, the music
changed key and took me with it –
come love, let’s fly together into
this devoted sunset.
So there you go – I hope you enjoyed this poem of mine!
I’d love to chat about it with you in the comments! What plot twists have you encountered recently?
