Let’s Not Rush Love

No comments

Nature as my guide

Time the illusion

A quickened pace

Ripping through like the destructive

Force of a storm

Your firework demands

Burning too fast, too bright

Blinding eyes

Behold no truth

No beauty

As these fireworks die

You speak of patience

While rushing by

Your words babbling like a brook

Holding no water

If only your pool were still

You could see the reflection of your own


The image I hold in my heart

Beating in natures time

A slower rhythm making love a rhyme

True love feels more like a flower to me

The undying kind

Unfolding imperceptible

Slowly over time

Trusting in the bloom

Foundations of trust

Taking time to build

Nurtured and earned

Not stolen in the dark

With fake promises

Sparks fading in the night

Illusions of love

Scattered across time

Will forever elude

Those of us who refuse

To sit still and marvel

At the gifts

Nature slowly grows

The miracle awaits

Only for the patient

And the bold
