*Kisses Of Salt*

On the other side of my mirror
there is a diamond
resting within the palm of velvet
glowing with a thousand colors
A reflection of blue
A memory of green
Laughter of the sea in the sunset
A song of noisy crickets
captured in the olive branches

Behind my mirror glass
deep inside the heart
there is a pearl
A reflection of the sea
A memory in the sand
Sealed with kisses of salt
preserved forever
within the sound of waves

  9. oh, I think this one will be my new favorite from you, the reflection of blue and the memory of green and that pearl, the sign that you have touched the sea and the sand … Masterful! Honestly, I love, love, love it! Keep these little diamonds coming!

  10. Really fabulous piece. Your change of look is lovely, but your prose seals it. it’s full of pictures. Beautiful, being with your love suits you. 🙂

  11. I love the last lines. “Sealed with kisses of salt preserved forever within the sound of waves.” Great poetry you have here. 🙂

  13. Truly beautiful! I love the imagery : )

  14. Reflection implies two images both are of the same but from different perspectives. I love your image of light reflected in the night of day.
    Great work.
