Me te aroha nui (with all my love)

I rise from your stillness

Spouting tornados of torrential words

Wet words that swirl around your quiet

Stirring the spring rain waters

down

 

Into hungry cracks of dry earth

Your hands following the shape of your heart

As your sun makes love to the sky

I feel you as you creak into my bones

With little more than moist whispers

Even though I’m growing old

But I imagine you hear young thoughts

As silent loneliness dissipates in exhales

Rain from your words begin draining

Into the pooling of this poet’s soul

Can you hear it?

Can you hear me as I begin breaking?

Me te aroha nui

As words turn from rain into snow

Cracks in my soul are awakening

So into your stillness I now go

You swept me away sir....nicely done. Makes my heart ache for the sun and the sky, the rain and the sea. Lovely.

I really felt this. I see it as some very old lover feeling tired, withered and all dried up and then along comes a beautiful memory of an old love and the memories make them feel like each poor has been enveloped with love, moist and refreshing, the kind that only young love feels. And for a moment they are transformed. <br />Well at least that's how it made me feel.
