I lie upon my bed, pen and paper in hand
Wondering how ink could possibly express
Feelings not superfluous, but in every way essential
Devastation and creation, they’ve become elemental
The beauty of the sun’s first rays, kissing your face with warmth
Iridescent turquoise dragonfly lighting atop a winter’s perch
Pink cotton candy melting upon a first delectable taste
Mist covered green grasses, dewdrops clinging so chaste
A sidewalk café’s fragrant coffee after a downpour
Lost in a botanical garden, art blooming with life
Mounded sparkling presents in ribbon-tied perfection
Strong embrace, much-needed unsought protection
Hair flying through the wind, arms thrown wide,
Watercraft jumping capping waves, sea mist spraying
Standing on a mountaintop, the world spread below
Whispered tender secrets, wishes only two can know
Rollercoaster gripped hard, cars blazing down the rails
Peace of calmed oceans waves, lapping a lazy shore
A trillion stars glittering in diamond swath above
Yet… nothing quite compares to indescribable love
