The Breadth Of My Love

if my love for you was any greater the trees would line up in poetic forms ...awe you in sonnets written... allow winds to cool your face... to trace it with nature’s hand. all the oxygen that covers all the waters rise, supercharge the breadth of my emotion. mountains would melt, shed their peaks like tears of joy. even the arid deserts serve up fruits, their prickly pears peeled on a platter. sunset would pause and sunrise hurry... ...exist in a paradox to herald your presence. petals would climb their stems regroup to bloom again. butterflies re-cocoon emerge as glorious fairies for all children to adore. the skies would willingly shape, etch, paint, frame my exuberance. the planet would swell, the galaxies expand. in the endless depth of my singular love i hold you dear, safely contain you in my admiring smile, for now, forevermore. 16~10~2014 Armand Hamouth

Excellent poem, my brother of God's inspirational grace, Maurice. I love the flow of the words and the impact of the message. The descriptive excellence is lovely. The theme is on point, and the tone moves your words with much grace. Great job! "The higher reality of consciousness enhances peace, love, harmony, and happiness in our hearts with actions we connectively and collectively accomplished through faith." –Professor, Ambassador, Dr. Joseph S. Spence Sr. USA (Epulaeryu Master)!
