Love and Andromeda


A soothing overtness of latent feelings
Entranced by dreams of an alchemic affection
An honesty that surpasses
The nakedness of the full moon
As gregarious as Aurora’s presence at dawn
Consumed by the impression
Of an empowering and all-consuming love
Unconditional in her labor
A damsel in distress
Yearning to be rescued by the occupancy of her heart
She is the princess Andromeda
Legends claim sits on a rocky terrace by the ocean
Chained to her dreams
As she waits for her savior Perseus
To harmonize their destinies
Like the congruence of two semi circles
To summon a love as perfect as a circle
To resonate to each other’s pulsating heart beats
To consummate a love
That will ripple in the waters of time
As the epitome of a mythical romance
As the alchemic dreams of a pelagic maiden
Incarnated to her philosopher’s stone
The comforting arms of Perseus

Poem of the Day

poet George Gordon Byron

It is the hour when from the boughs
The nightingale's high note is heard;
It is the hour -- when lover's vows
Seem sweet in every whisper'd word;
And gentle winds and waters near,
