My life‘s Atlantis…

My life‘s Atlantis…

to gingerly describe a dreamy notion
on a shaded vellum sheet…
in metaphors of sweetness
merely mythical and probably
as tender…tender as a zephyr
from another distant world, another age…

to gently hold the humble page
and fold it into something nice and small…
much like a child would make a little ship
a silky Chinese lantern or a gogglebox
to save a sigh of light…
awaiting any voice to whispercall…

rivers seem to silently set out off
just a glance, a sudden flowerdance
a blush, a thought, a hue…
oh yes, my man, I think of you
the only way I can…so deeply still here
in a hush of purpleblue…

the load inside my little ship
is warm of precious memories…
I see my caring parents
theirs and theirs and there’s no gem
no inner pray’r they brought about
I could not touch…
much like a musing girl would look

at shiny seashells by a waterline
at pictures in an evercherished book…
to gingerly describe my life’s Atlantis
on the mirror of our love…
the one reflecting what you’re giving me
from where you are in heaven up above…
