Butterfly Landings

Butterfly Landings 

It’s a precarious perch
High by a skydive
In such a leap of faith
A leap of love
Circumnavigates these boots of Earth
Fellow to the stratospheres
These butterfly landings
Of you in my heart

Destinies lance
Has shot me full to the sun
On the twirling chant sung
Ever re initiates
And sounds the river onward runs
Of your name
Settles red iridescence
To tip the scales
These butterfly landings
Of you in my arms

I see you in precognitions
In my obsessions of your hair
Lip-syncing to the kisses 
In my passions of your eyes
Where my heady desires evolve
This molecular bonding’s
These butterfly landings
Of you inside my soul

It’s a precarious perch
To expressive to encapsulate
How much I love you
It’s a peculiar laugh
That admits I have never even met you
But all of you inexorable
I am conceded to the pull
I am bound to the groundings
In these butterfly landings
Of you

( Everything I am
  Everything I do
  Wrapped inside
  Those landing butterflies
  I cannot express
  In any vocabulary of words
  Only in the dictionary of unspoken eternals
  Lay the definitions of
  How much I love 
  How much I need 
  How much I want 


  They beg with you
  This man on bended knees
  How this strength in me

  Come back to me

  Come back to me )

    Colin, The line that interests me is,"It’s a peculiar laugh That admits I have never even met you." There is so much love in that poem. It seems like you are waiting and hoping for your soul mate whom you have not yet met. Am I right or wrong? Your poem is wonderful. Note: I'm glad that you liked my Tooth Fairy poem My grandad was fun!. Keep writing. Always, Dane

    Your title is beautiful, your words speak beautifully of the pleading heart, wide open, raw, and needing. Peace

    This just breaks my very heart. What woman would not listen gravely to this plea? Only a heart made of stone would not feel the love inside this one. Colin, you just steal hearts. I am sure she loves you too. How could she not? Love christie
