Anisoptera – For J

Ephemeral emerald iridescence
Envelops the fragility of your oblong form
Barely seen, a flutter of translucent wings
Surrenders your position, caught in a ray of light
Enticed by the Succubus, like a moth to a flame

Your many eyes see beyond her carnal shell
Contemplating the woes of the disconnected
Shimmering belonging, you glisten in the sun
Of the one you love, now, then, and tomorrow
Until the cycle starts anew; a natural order
Reborn from the cold, dark, depths of the pond.

Dali

Like little spiders,
You helped me spin a web
Of jute and love,
A cocoon of pain and happiness
From which I’ve emerged
A shimmering butterfly.

Heart so filled with stars,
Like those shining on your walls,
A kitten waiting to pounce.

Poetry projected onto my soul,
My words floating in space
We’ve become a perfect circle,
Like the eclipse
When the sun meets the moon.

Blinding…
