The light of you
twinkles on your skin
sends shooting stars crackling from the top of your head.
The light of you
glows blue green like phosphorescence
You are bio-luminescence
shimmering on an ocean,
trails flowing after you like an evening gown.
I reach to dip my hand into the water and watch the light
die in my palm.
I long to live in your light,
bathe in the beauty,
float in the flotilla of the mesmerized, microscopic worshipers
flowing after you.
But you go your way
and I go home.
I gaze after you, and wonder if you’ve shared enough of you,
for me to generate light
of my own.
It’s always a let down at the end of a conference to leave the like minds of other writers, and return home to quotidian life. This was a particularly good conference for me, with lots of messages from the universe (or rather one that just kept coming up over and over). I am hopeful the words will be off on interesting journeys as a result of the learning.
The words, the emotions & the imagery were in perfect sync thanks for sharing such a delightful post 😊 According to your convenience please do read some of my writings would love to know what you think about them!
Your own bio-luminescence comes naturally. Let it shine!
Apparently, this is quite literally true. 🙂
Aaah, lovely. Really enjoyed it. Loved the last few lines especially. Lovely images.
Beautiful poem. I hope you could visit my site too and give feedback on how i can improve it. Thank you.
Hi Aspirantgoth. I may visit, but improvement is subjective. Watch what gets action and move in that direction if it matters. Thanks for stopping by!
Thank you for your advice.❤ happy blogging😊
