The Swan

The Swan 

Near feathers in the wind.
I stare as she slowly drifts into the shadows of yesterday. 
She is not me
She is not you!

A theme, like morning upon a crystal view.
She is of the wind
She is of the sun
She is the moon
She is the magic in your eyes.

Tonight she sits on the calm waters of your reflection.
Tonight she makes love to you.
Tonight she listens and counts the rhythm in your heartbeat.
She is a thief and steals every single breath from your body and soul...
And Still -
She is the night air 
She is the tranquil sound
She is perfect
She is mighty in your eyes.

You are the oceans
In you, she swims with trust.
You hold on to the tides, 
You keep her feathers dry and warm.
You stray her away from the sadness in a lost dance.
The aches under her wings belong to the shade in your heart.
That is why-
She is the grace
She is the smile
She is the fire
She is everything in your eyes.

Graceful feathers in the wind.
The dream of dreams
She might be me!
She might be you!
"Till Death Do We Part."

“The Swan”
-the symbol of everlasting love-

    Great Poem. It dances with singing suns to soothe sullen stars in lucid night.

    Hi Linda, the swan, a most beautiful and elegant bird. Why should not such a one be the symbol of the eternal Love. Once more your words paint such lovely visions, the swan softly gliding upon them into the minds of the readers. You have written this one in such an eloquent style. Now, these are indeed beautiful pictures for one to hold in the galleries of the mind, to watch again and again. You always take creativity to a new level. Have a good day, Your Friend always....MIKE.

    I swim in the air/ And dance on the waters/ I cool off in the sun/ And sweat on the moon/ My feathers/ Are your lather/ And my gaze/ Catches your fire/ When you're in my arms/ That's to conspire/- (I immersed in contrasts to grasp the original-that is love,which you have penned with grace)-

    The swan is such a graceful, poised and beautiful creature. God must have had a reason for it to be the symbol of everlasting love :) I love the natural flow of your words. I loved the lines- "A theme, like morning upon a crystal view. She is of the wind She is of the sun She is the moon She is the magic in your eyes." Good job & keep writing! xoxo Dipika
