Mariposa

Butterfly
painted lady
spread your wings

Thighs of color
pose your love

I light
candle flame
for you
I am
consumed by fire

Since my house
has burned down
I can see
the moon more clearly

I gaze upon
your Eden
falling upon me

I run blindly
to you
as you mount
flowers
in my garden

As I hold you
in my arms
do not
let me feel
your departure
upon my hand...

    Ken, your pen is beautiful. (heart) the exposure of healing is found through the imagery. somehow I feel this new passion burning deep inside you, is what you needed. but u know you can't keep a mariposa in your hands for that long. a beautiful gift of a poem. and PS... im from Texas. wink!. luv*Linda

    Hola Paloma, Some say love is like a butterfly, if you chase it, it will run away..If you are patient it will stay in your hands,, Besos, Ken
