Flavor of Love

Morning whispers a promise
thawing all that has gone
as the sun’s first-sweet-breath
kisses trembling trees
leaving them all a quiver.

I am silent witness to days
arrival after nights tenderness
held the face of millennia
within its cosmic truth.

The flavor of love
plays cold across my tongue
(reminds)
this is what it is
no more, no less.

I wonder,

what ancient wisdom is
there hidden, the eye doesn’t see
yet, the heart knows.
What ancient truths still
to be revealed.

Bending to life’s wishes
I keep the flame and
dream alive
inside the flight of
a peaceful warrior
knowing
someone, somewhere in time
is saying my name
again, again and
again

Onward gentle dreamer

Onward.

  1. Bending to life’s wishes
    I keep the flame and
    dream alive
    inside the flight of
    a peaceful warrior
    knowing
    someone, somewhere in time
    is saying my name
    again, again and
    again…. there’s a tender magic in these lines…

  2. i like so much about this, beginning with morning, picking up the sweet breeze, your stillness, even though your tongue is very much alive. the wish of someone somewhere is utterly beautiful. that sort of image, that sort of mystical possibility you just stamped into my own imagination. thank you.

  3. Okay, this is FOR SURE my favorite poem of yours. I SO LOVE IT! “the heart knows”…keeping the dream alive…..”someone…..is saying my name”….the peaceful warrior and “Onward, gentle dreamer. Onward.” O!M!G! Could this BE any more beautiful??????

  4. bren, love it…the flavor of love on the tongue is a great touch but my absolute fav part is…

    I keep the flame and
    dream alive
    inside the flight of
    a peaceful warrior
    knowing
    someone, somewhere in time
    is saying my name
    again, again and
    again

    that is a bit of magic there…nicely done…

  5. Played like a movie type adventure, searching somewhere for the one to say thy name, although when that person is found lets hope they aren’t a nut job..haha

  6. The words flowed right into one another making it smooth. I don’t know if you’re speaking to a future soldier fighting for you or not but it nicely done.
