Equipped with feathers, in the wind it flows
Ascends, comes down and flourishes on blue;
above the sea, beyond the dark and deep,
my love extends and balances, on wings....
For you it stands above horizon's edge,
an arrow swift and lodged on pining breasts;
unspoken words that hang on fluttered breath
as you return, sweet blossoms on my lips.
You speak of ageless love, endeared in dreams
against the stills of frozen, winter grey,
joined, drifting mates eternity shall bring,
hence both our aching souls shall be redeemed....
With tenderness I hold you in my eyes,
(ethereal spirit born in arbor green);
I fear to touch my love's angelic bloom,
it tears my fleeting heart to hear it cry.
Couldn't have written this without Giorgio, my good friend, who's been a great help in finishing this poem. He has given a soul and a definitive form to my random lines.
Thank you Giorgio!
(Where you feel, 'Wow, this is beautiful!',, those parts of this poem are his!)

“It is part of the nature of every definitive love that sooner or later it can reach the beloved only in infinity.” - Rainer Maria Rilke
