Your name was inscribed in the lines of my palm
our love inscribed in the realms of storms
the coarseness of the sand I feel on your palms
brings the vast seas to my heart, roaring capriciously and then tranquil, by turns.
The tempestuous tides
with your heartbeats, respond
automatically to the pull and push of the moody moon
the unfathomable depth of the oceans reflects in your eyes
(from the stormy greys to the muddied browns)
hiding subtly the underlying passion
I savour the sweetness of the brackish seas
on your lips, my carnation lips atingle with
a taste defying any definition!
Even when your hand slips away from mine
our lines entwined bind us together
like the sea and the moon that are forever bound
sometimes close, at others afar
leaving my landlocked home awash with sea spray.
Today’s prompt challenges you to also write a love poem, one that names at least one flower, contains one parenthetical statement, and in which at least some lines break in unusual places.
Also for Sadje’s wdys.
