In Response

I don't have much in the way of coherent thoughts to offer right now, so I'm going to just post a poem I wrote recently called "In Response".

You skirt the edges of my mind,

You pound in my very chest,

You linger in a quiet thought,

You burst through the bleeding west.


Your love is like a roaring furnace,

like a journey back to home,

Your voice is warm, in thundrous silence,

calming me when I’m alone.


You are preeminence, august, glow,

You hold the world, its beams,

my hope.

"You burst through the bleeding west."

I believe the referent here is the sky at twilight? Regardless, I very much enjoy this line. And not just this line but the whole poem.

Thanks for sharing this, Mark.
