Love Poem No.27

A gentle thought occurred to me

to fashion you a rosary

from sunflower blooms.

I know your love of summer’s spell,

your sorrow that the sounds and smells

cannot last longer, or forever.

The golden blossoms you could pray

on every fall and winter day

and so assauge your sadness.

Maybe God would bend the ear

to take note of your longings dear,

and let us live to live another.

    the way you assemble syllables and sentences into words of wisdom and wonder
    always leaves me warmer and more settled than before i read the resulting poem
    thank you!
    then i share
