Read introduction

this was an exercise to use a line from a poem we admire and make a new poem that is our own.

So Close.

Water_witch-2by Abigael29 Jun 2014

The flame of our love burns without fear
it enlightens our route to new horizons

love is the fire and sweetness in our kiss
our enduring affection fills life with bliss

I am your lover , friend, brother and sister,
old and wrinkly our smiles will wear one face.

together: a song sounds sweeter, laughter
lasts for longer and the wine tastes divine.

When we are silent an easy intimacy falls
we know what no conversation can reveal

loving you, distance and closeness dissolve
into a sea , fathoms deep in complicicity ;

so close,that your hand on my breast is mine,
so close that your eyes close with my dreams.


with a nod to Pablo Neruda -
so close that your hand upon my chest is mine,
so close that your eyes close with my dreams.”

From Pablo Neruda a love sonnet
