She is

Posted in Expression in poetry on 11/09/2010 by markcalles

She is a cherry tree

Full in ageless blossom

A gift to offer your own device in every branch of lissome


Fruits smooth and supple

Let her yield tempt

Least it take of you, so should you take of the flesh


She is a falling flower

Stricken from her perch

With which the wind made no promise of fame in turn of curse


Her perfume is robust

It lies on every breath

And weighs its siren anchors across already heavy breast
