Afterglow


if a scientist fell in love with a poet-

would the stars still be ...
self-luminous spheroidal celestial bodies
or the starry sparkles in a lover's eyes,
starlight emanating from warm embraces

would the moon still be ...
a natural satellite revolving around the earth
or smiles as incandescent as crescent moons,
hair braided with ribbons of moonbeams

would the sky still be ...
the expanse of space arching over the planet
or the vastness of sky-filled hearts,
the infinity of eternal love

oh, to believe in the invisible!

I had so much fun composing this poem! The lines in italic are strictly scientific definitions of the stars, moon and sky. The rest is my own poetic vision. I love science as it gives me a greater understanding and appreciation of the wonders of the universe. But I also believe in a deeper sense of spirituality, and that there is a lot more than just what the eyes can see. And poetry to me enhances the experience! Enjoy!

at last ...


i waited so long for everything
to unfold as it should

leaving no stone unturned

for the right time to stop asking why
and start saying
yes  

to soar into the sky
surrender!
no longer fearing
it would only last as long as
Spring blooms

to know the difference
between love that burns out
and love that keeps on burning

and now this flame is still ablaze
within me, between us

i waited so long for this
rebirth of hope
of what is holy and sacred-
this bond
that sprouts from the earth
and carries us to the heavens

we have risen in love


Spring has sprung even in New York City! The tulips in my first photo seem as tall as the Empire State Building, don't you think? Daffodils are also blooming everywhere.


I also found a big Easter egg! I wonder if there is a surprise inside? Smiles. There are many colorful egg sculptures like this all around the city. So fun! I'm sharing my poem and post with Poets United for the "Midweek Motif on Holy Days and Holidays."

Happy Holidays to all! xx

Spring Break


My dear friends, I'm taking a Spring break and will be back in a week or so. By that time, Spring should be in full bloom and I will be rested and refreshed. New posts will blossom soon. This is a great time of the year to do some Spring cleaning. I tend to be a minimalist and I try to get rid of clutter as much as possible, both in my poetry and in life. It's also a good time to get rid of mental clutter. Let go of any negative emotions and welcome a new season with renewed hope. I plan on doing a little re-organizing, decorating, and daydreaming. But you already know I'm a dreamer! Thanks for the love!


Happy Spring! xx
