With you I climb mountains without looking down,

the strength I feel within you when climbing on clouds,

my heart’s footing unsure and my head knows unsound,

but the risk of the jump and its pleasures abound.

 

 

Blue skies don’t matter, just the feel of you near,

if the rain comes we’ll walk through it, with nary a care,

singed golden wheat grows as high as our sights,

higher than the places where a romance ignites.

 

 

Deep red dirt flows clean through your veins,

it covers my reality and I forget all these pains,

and for those fleeting moments I’m alive at last,

not dredging up the sorrow of a broken down past.

 

 

No changing seasons matter, not May nor December,

and many years from now, will the others remember,

if we loved like rushing wolves beneath fallen stars,

back when endless new worlds up above could be ours.

From down and gritty to outward to the stars, love covers a landscape of a good life. So beautiful the way you describe love. The painting is fabulous. I'm afraid to go check to see what it costs because I would love to have it.

This is one of those 'gorgeous' poems, Michelle,
not 'gorgeous' superficially but gorgeous richly,
profoundly, profoundly enough to genuinely stir the heart.
Yes!

Thanks, Michelle for bringing that painting from the page and place it in the heart.
Reviewed by Sage Sweetwater
A dedication to the likes of a beloved soul mate, Michelle. The simplicity here grabs at one's heart and tugs at self-reassurance. You do these so very well. What you see in a painting comes out in words of poetry so beautiful. Your "mind's eye" is keenly aware of life's emotions and the valuable connections you render to us, your readers through this style is advanced beyond this plane of life. What I always see in your poetry is ethereal and generative of heavenly hues. The last stanza is stellar! Blessed Be.

Love,
Sage

Dear Michelle, It is nice seeing you again and always to discover a new painting and a new poem.I like this painting in particular. It reminds me of my home town where I played in the wheat fields. Thank you for sharing, love Emile.
