Love Poem

If I had watched every sunset,

Light coiled ravenously upon the diminishing

Curves of an earth old and yet

Constantly, effervescently new,

 

If I had seen sunrises from each continent,

Starlight dripping through night’s

Blue blankets, like firelight through a desert tent,

 

If I had witnessed stars being born,

Their imperfect figures expanding in a rush

Of trillions of fireworks, explosions

Befitting new gods,

 

If I had watched the ocean breathe her tides

Like the sumptuous monster,

Hiding her own starry depths beneath painted waves,

 

Then, perhaps,

I would have learned the words

To capture the incomparable magic

Of your smile.
