For Jena, A Poem To Stop the World
Love, the restless breeze holds
soft shades of lost
blooms from many flowers
I planted for you.
Love, the busy sounds of the world
cannot drown out
the silent grace
I long have felt for you.
Do not disturb the placid seas.
Do not wake up the sleeping stars.
Do not put to flame the unlit candle
I have forever held for you.
Love, the seasons are made
of earths rotations around the sun
and I am made a full season
from how my love rotates around your beating
