Hope Floats


She, a demi-goddess sculpted by the seed of god
As heaven and earth converged for divinity to laud
As god made love to a mystical lass by the ocean side
To consummate a mythical love blessed by the tranquil tide
From the womb of the lass arose a radiant beauty
A chimera of mystique mortality and corporeal divinity
Her legendary dimensions non navigable by the eyes of man
As only a sprinkle of imagination can embrace her mythical span
With generosity of curves that rise like the cascading tide
And succulent breasts that jiggle by the mistral’s side
Sprouting desire is her mortal visage of spring
The dressing of rouge unveiling a smile with a sassy zing
As arrays of dental stubs glisten like the star-lit sky
To sprinkle on her flawless face moonbeams vie
Yet, she is blessed with a golden heart of an archangel
Seeping inner beauty like a timeless ornate spangle
Here I lie, a fool dreaming that our crossroads will merge
To unravel a glimpse of perfection, as two destinies converge

Poem of the Day

poet Ralph Waldo Emerson

Knows he who tills this lonely field
To reap its scanty corn,
What mystic fruit his acres yield
At midnight and at morn?

In the long sunny afternoon,
