Demands from a Selfish Lover
(originally published online in Poetry Victims)
on birch bark
with a hawk's flight feather quill
and corn poppy ink
find an ancient alchemy book
collect the morning dew
turn it into aquamarines, emeralds
leave it on my doorstep,
wrapped in silk
you have spun yourself
gather robins and doves
to serenade me as i fall asleep
then perform an aubade when i wake
and when i wake,
on a day when the sky is bluest blue
arrange the clouds
to spell out our names
do something about that time-space continuum thing
turn back time
then fast foreword
then return to now
like a ride, you see?
just for us
from you, to me
I love you so much that
I am a Pisces (engaged to a Scorpio), live in a Chicago suburb, have 2 grown children (son aged 26, Aquarius and daughter aged 23, Pisces). I have been a Special Ed teacher for a very long time. I am interested in astrology, familiars and aromatherapy. I have also been collecting 'rocks', gemstones, charms and crystals since I was a child. I am not an expert on any of these topics, but a very willing student. I also write and love to read. I believe we are sent here on earth to help each other---things you do come back to you---even in seemingly the smallest ways.
