14 Poems for 14 Words For Love 2014 VALENTINE'S DAY EVENT - created/administered by Jodi Barnes




14 Poems for 14 Words of Love 




dancer girl
twirls atop
the music
box playing
tinkling, shimmering
forever dreams
en pointe

~

reaches she of smashed
fingers, acid burned face
to rock the cradle
of hope

~

hunger knows no child
hatred a dictionary word
boundaries melted long ago
new world

~

in the smoke rising
from the ashes swirling
you shake your head
and smile

~

wire imprint on
soft pressed cheek
gates swing open
on a new day
little one

~

second time love
lingers like honey
salve to singed
soul-wings healed
soaring again

~

at the glittering
shore dancing barefoot
baby on my hip
forever young

~

cracked lips smile over
the rim of the cup
at the hand pouring
the water

~

Liquid eyes raised
above a blossoming
palm-print bruise
smiles above ice
apply love 

~

Lion licks the lamb
in celestial fields, city streets,
savannahs, arctic poles
peace all
In this spinning blue
marble we all share
no need to hold tight
stuck together

~

Come into the circle
Sit and warm your cold
bones, your battered body
safe here

~

There in the cold rain
two emerald eyes
puff of coal black
seeks Forever Home

~

Skipping softly in
the red dust
hand in hand
clasped in laughter
No boundaries

~

Wrapped in lace
held in hope
lines etched in
ninety birthdays gone
she waits
