tender deluge

in this rain time

I have written for you

a love letter

each line

warm as those November flames

it's fifth-day children

remember, remember

 

flowered, gem-stoned,

doing their utmost

to gently, slowly

dance with your soul

 

along, the ways

of a heaven

word after, word

builds, beautifies.

 

Heart-written lines

for the saint in you to bless

their enlightening

of your every thought

 

thoughts that I know

hold hands with mine

until wishful thinking

and hungering hopes

become reality.

 

◄ oiled and watered immortalizations

thinking in frames ►

This is wonderful Rose, rich in so many places. The opening line itself is stellar. In the third stanza the play on "heavenward" with "heaven word" is a master stroke, in my mind, and the crazy punctuation in the same stanza combined with the enjambments force pauses that render the reading to be like speaking while crying.
