Verdant (O.S.I.)

Hi all,

I am writing this poem for O.S.I. and the theme is verdant

I thought the sign of spring
Would bring you home to me
I thought the fragrant grass
Would be too intoxicating
And the buds awakened
Be too illuminating
And sighs of birds in love nests
Be too exhilarating
Yet the emptiness of your touch
Is such that I do not look for signs
I pray only that the wind
Will bring you to me

Beautiful and poignant. The last two lines resonate with me, I often wait on the wind.

There is some deep loneliness here. Wow!

verification makes it really hard to comment. you'd get more comments if you turned it off. i had to do this several times to get it to work.
