*Wings*

From the cradle of poetry
from one winter to another
the long winding path have shown its golden thread
The empire of an inaccessible love
A distant fragrance
a gleam of sweet-scented pleasure
Inhale it once and your soul is poisoned for life
craving more drops of that blood
to still the hunger
for survival
for life
A desire to drink from that cup
to find a reason to live
while the whole body shivers
in need of a shelter
a protection from the freezing night
in a shape of wings
giving warmth with their gentle embrace
offering the serenity on the way ahead
on the journey into the arms
of tomorrow

  1. There are angels, and…angels 🙂
    But of course, I see what you mean. Thank you very much for your visit Martin

  2. A very beautiful poem! Unfortunately angels have the tendency to unfold their sheltering wings and to fly away …

    “A distant fragrance
    a gleam of sweet-scented pleasure
    Inhale it once and your soul is poisoned for life”

    How true and striking this is.

  3. as if peering over to the other side…

  4. Ah ! this was one of the best post i read today ..
    Loved it totally .. gives my wings a push in the right direction 😉

  5. My wings were broken a long time ago … they healed, but now I’m only flying low … which is not so bad … once you get used to it 🙂 Love, cat.

    • That’s sad Cat, but as you said good that they can be used even for the lower flights 🙂 I know what you mean…Well, they’ll maybe get stronger with time… 🙂

  6. Why are we so jealous of wings? How we wish for them feeling that in their possession we can break free from our earthbound burdensome lives and achieve a life of wonder and delight. A beautifully expressed poem.

  7. This is impressive love. This is why I subscribe to your writings.
    This is the stuff of Kindred Spirits.
