Cassiopeia's Lovechild


Harlequin horizons
Waltzing on Egyptian cotton
Parting with careless whispers
In the midsummer wind

Chartreuse beads
With a hint of absinthe
Glistening like fireflies
On molten ivory skin

Dappled orbs of fire
On milky white terraces
Windows to your springs
Of an unheralded affection

Constellations and satellites
Veiled by dominions of vermillion
Reconciling to my lips
For a protracted kiss

Vulnerable is the soul
To your nascent summer glory
As beneath your rainbow sundress
Lies the doorway to paradise

Poem of the Day

poet Robert William Service

Just Home and Love! the words are small
Four little letters unto each;
And yet you will not find in all
The wide and gracious range of speech
Two more so tenderly complete:
