That Hawthorn

Mine fairy love
floats with crystalline wings
‘bout her lovely tree

In the early summer, her peek
flutters ‘bout
causing burst of mine declaration;
I’m in love !

Throughout the white clusters
mine fairy hears mine shout

And when, “All fruits fail”,
mine fairy 
with her gift,
yes,
that red fruit
in September…
fluttering about,
with her,
crystalline wings;

She too shouts

    Fruity stuff, dear James, and I mean fruity in the best sense of the word - Rumi like. LOve, daver

    I'm feeling very humbled by your poem, and your always warm words James. You are indeed one fine guy, and I'm fortunate to have you in my poetic circle. Your poetry is way out on it's own by far. No one else writes like you do, and I doubt there will be another. This makes you rather unique, in writing and in heart. Such a rare commodity in today's world. Have a lovely up and coming weekend Noah and your good-self, James :) :)

    You must be dreaming again James; they take you to places we can only wish for. Lovely verse dear friend; I did give the other JAMES A HEADS UP TO COME AND INVESTIGATE THIS.
