November Love Song

I had a blue-eyed love--
In the heart of winter, we'd meet;
Crystal snow spread across our bed,
And river ice beneath.
I'm reminded by the cold and leaden sky--
My blue-eyed love and I.

I had a green-eyed love--
In the heart of summer we'd meet;
Lilies spread across our bed,
And drowning depths beneath.
I'm reminded by unforgiving July--
My green-eyed love and I.

I had a black-eyed love--
In the heart of autumn, we'd meet;
Windblown leaves spread across our bed,
And only the earth beneath.
Cruel the desire that lives nor dies--
My black-eyed love and I.

The more I explore your blogs the more I am intrigued. This poem was vivid and tantalizing. I love your photos and the sultriness of your style. I have to wonder what lies beyond the walls of the private blog lol. Thank you for sharing your poems. I loved the image that this had in the first stanza.

JRM said...

This was marvellously constructed.

Mory said...

simply fantastic. i love the way you change the eye's color in different season to reflect your emotions.

Brian Miller said...

love the progression through the seasons as well as the color...and as always you capture the senses and send them realing...nicely done.

Us hazel-eyed girls need love, too!

This read in my head as a song. I love the different portrayals of the loves!

And what of Spring? She would have to be the hazel eyes, I think ;).

The flow between the seasons, the colors and the accompaniement of all things natural is just beautiful, Shay.

Black wings upon
an angle dark
Three lovers
did you see
leaden skies
unforgiving July
that lives nor dies
across the bed with thē

I like this one a lot. I see it and feel it. I could almost hear Ingrid Michelson singing it.

The Bug said...

Oh yeah - Ingrid Michaelson would do a GREAT job singing this!

I was going to ask about spring too. Maybe that's the one that stayed...

Claudia said...

Ahhh - the love of the seasons - so nicely written -so well put!

Fireblossom said...

Kind readers--I am trying to get around to all of your blogs, but my old comp has decided to play Carnival Of Error Messages and so I am having difficulties. Please bear with me. I appreciate all of your comments! :-)

soundoffreedom said...

makes me anticipate spring..your writing is beautiful!

kavisionz said...

My my my!!! What fantabulous imagery and awesome words to go with it!

Now I am in love with your blog...

I now have a brown-eyed love
In the heart of monsoon, we'd meet;
Blooming flora spread across our bed,
And splashy puddles beneath.
Those tuneful songs that make me sigh--
My brown-eyed love and I... :)

Good God.. I LOVED YOUR POEM!
Very soulful... and oozing with style!!!

PattiKen said...

Very nice trip through the seasons of love, but I too wonder about Spring. Must be that Spring was the love one wants to forget.

Caty said...

I really enjoyed the captivity of this poem! enjoyed the passage through the seasons

Captivating, kept my interest through the seasons, and wanted to hear more of your poetry.
