Marion Made

Crush
infatuation weight
soul freight
in fool's gold
even real gold.

-c-r-u-s-h-
I heft the letters
each by each.
Even the vowel weighs
several ounces.

30 years of my
lady's alchemy
transforming gold
to feathers
light as a lark. Wings
for my skylarking soul.

I love the last stanza and I think it almost works on its own. I like the gold turned into feathers. A beautiful and fragile image.

Inc, It's difficult to write about the good stuff without sounding sacrine or twee. I am blessed by the lady in my life, and grateful.

Beautiful. I love it when people give eachother wings!

Inconsequential said...

Too right Ish, I've tried and tried to write stuff specially for 'Rain, but it always looks silly mushy, it's very frustrating, and when I do get something i don't mind, well, it never really says enough...

Oh well, I shall have to stick to gruesome :) Just about got the hang of that :)
