Rapture


A challenge from Victoria over at dVerse is to write an erasure poem this is a form of poetry created by erasing words from an existing text in prose or verse and framing the result on the page as a poem.
Here is my 2nd go round:)

you make perfect the present
thought feeling soul sense
you around me
beneath me
above me
you love me!
we clutch at the core
cheeks burn
arms open
eyes shut
and lips meet!

Erasure poem from:

NOW

Out of your whole life give but a moment!
All of your life that has gone before,
All to come after it,—so you ignore,
So you make perfect the present,—condense,
In a rapture of rage, for perfection’s endowment,

Thought
and feeling and soul and sense
Merged in a moment which gives me at last

You around me for once, you beneath me, above me

Me—sure that despite of time future, time past,—
This tick of our life-time’s one moment you love me!
How long such suspension may linger? Ah, Sweet—
The moment eternal—just that and no more—
When ecstasy’s utmost we clutch at the core
While cheeks burn, arms open, eyes shut and lips meet!

By Robert Browning (1812 – 1889)

to passion’s fire –
an old flame

One Of

20170504_105400.jpg

You know the “one of” in your garden. The one with no brothers or sisters, here is mine. I know I  planted more than one of this type. But in my yard, the squirrels reign and made a fast meal of them in their early days. So now my “one of” stands alone.

Love


on this life journey
we have navigated all
we laughed and we cried –
autumn of our lives now filled
with warm loving reflections
