A Short Love Poem For Her

She walks in stride with the sun, 
every day traversing the sky. 
Hovers above my head like a halo, 
eternally throwing light at my shadow; 
brightens my night when I've gone awry.

Fragile – A Sonnet

11209828874_fba9c0fa35

Beauty bathes like a new born babe,
swimming into the world in a¬†mother’s embrace.
Shinning like a light that quickly fades,
extinguished into nothing without a trace.
Beauty rests like a fresh, wet snow
blanketed over the frozen ground,
but with only the warning of the sun’s warm glow,
fades into silence without a sound.
For beauty’s not a crop for an idle harvester,
nor to be left blowing in the breeze,
but nurtured to life like the gardener –
love and patience worked and watered into seed.
Beauty…life…fragile like a world of glass –
all clutch onto lives doomed to pass so fast.
