This is the second in my original Three Simple Love Poems from 1988. Not the best poem, but I do love the first two lines! Still, Hallmark-y, Cheesy, but, since it is one of my first, I still like it. Much like the six million dollar man, I’ve tried to rebuild it bigger-stronger-better!

Love is a Place  
A wondrous place –

Where butterflies, deer,
and gazellelope’s grace,
forging bonds cast in crystal
tied tight with smoke,
nesting on cloud-tops,
protected with hope.

But Bacchus beguiles
(Ambrosia consumed)
with gifts given freely,
a wild pas-de-deux

For here in this land of
Confusion, askew
A brief of abandon
Means forever, adieu!
