lavender lines

tumbleweeds thread the head of a pin

while the size of our love’s always been
reminiscent of the dreams laden in your hands

like the flavor of morning dew
know that I’ve always seen you

in my mind

a place in my heart you always reside

while lavender fills the lines
and the love within me shines

together with the sun, the moon, and the stars
awaiting the next time

we hold hands under a canopy of two hearts
forevermore entwined

      2. Dear Jeff,

        What a sweetly penned poem of delicate love and fond reminiscence!

        The chosen painting is also a very nice accent to the feel of your poem.

        I wonder why you have chosen to rhyme the following lines and not the rest:

        like the flavor of morning dew
        know that I’ve always seen you

        while lavender fills the lines
        and the love within me shines

        All in all, well done!

        Yours sincerely,
        SoundEagle

    Jeff your poem is delicate and a precious gift as is love itself. I absolutely love this line, «we hold hands under a canopy of two hearts
    forevermore entwined.» Each line more beautiful then the one before the next. BRAVO my friend and the painting is so perfect. Sending my love, Joni
