For My Truest of Loves

23

The day was grey-blue, echo of your eyes;

sky filled up with promise of rain,

and we waited for beloved petrichor.

Lemon yellow and speckled black,

a noble friend

clasped

your flaxen strands and flexed its wings.

What dreams did she bring, my darling?

Do you know how often

I dream of the daylight that dances

upon your face?

Formed inside my body, you are

living art,

gusting love from

honest lungs—

you speak your truths.

Honor your heart always, baby girl,

and you’ll always be rewarded with

self-respect.

Live kindly,

and the butterflies

will flock to you,

forever.

    1. Thank you, Lovely Lady. A friend of mine ‘challenged’ me to write something light and pretty. Nicole is my greatest inspiration for light and pretty. ❤

        1. I thought so! Unfortunately, she says it doesn’t count BECAUSE it’s about Nicole. What-the-fuck-ever, LOL!
