An ordinary day

Love came waltzing in on a very ordinary day, a whimsical step that was easy to learn, a chance meeting, a calling-card of confusing craving.
a crazed feeling
somewhere between brave
and a head-long tumble
into awakened reeling
attention and waiting
kissed and perfumed
unanswered questions
freedom with no escape
an unlocked prison
Love raged like a furnace. Ecstasy was five words and a name, an indescribable burning, a dizzy light-headedness.
a distant bird-like call
a telling ringing bell
a bouncing red ball
dreams and outpour
memory and lost recall
aching needs
and unopened doors
feelings and soul knowing
the tingle of unforgettable
Love was a single red poppy in a field of dandelions, a shimmering heat haze, followed by days of not knowing.
an imprisoned hawk
gliding in dazed freedom
a lone tumble weed
simply leaving
holding hurt in
a desperate yearn
a silky dress
never yet worn
a third degree burn
Love, like some distant star, is a burning light that never dims, pulsating with relentless optimism.
alone but not lonely
silently resilient
a sail set for singular survival
hope has planted a garden
blooms scenting every room
a heart that cannot be untrue
to its own mirror image
to nights painted in blue
to the music of having known you
