She is more magical

than a sticky-winged butterfly

unfolding from its hard shell,

the vivid arc of a bright rainbow

after the storm,

the muscular power of a thoroughbred

thundering across a field,

a full silver moon sailing

across a velvet night sky,

a virgin fall of powdery snow

awaiting my skis,

the scent of freshly cut grass

at the end of a summer’s day,

a glass of brunello di montalcino

sipped by the fire,

the staccato gunfire of high heels

crossing a marble floor,

a newly emerged desert flower

ephemeral in the sand.


She is more magical

than fervent wishes

unexpectedly coming true.

    Hmmm did you mean skis or kiss. 😉 This is definitely one of your most romantic poems ever. I’ve noticed a difference in your writing these days and all signs point to love. Your poem is so very relatable to me and your words remind me of the way I feel about a certain someone. I think that’s why I always look forward to your poems so much, as they resonate completely (not to mention they’re divinely beautiful as well.).

    Such soft words, like butterfly-wing flutter. Where do you do most of your writing?
