Sweetness vs. Majesty

Written for:  The Sunday Whirl, Wordle #568

Words:  face, map, check, hope, vast, stillness, sparrows,
        kiss, pulpit, lack, silent, whisper

You whisper into
silent stillness,
your hopeful face
a vast map 
of emotions 
you cannot
hold in check.  
I burn for fire
and brimstone
kisses, like 
preachings from
a pulpit.  You
are sweet as a
sparrow in Spring,
but you lack 
the majesty 
of an eagle.

I am a freelance poet, born and bred in Brooklyn, New York. I live with my husband, John, and two charming rescue dogs–Marion Miller and Murphy. We spent eight lovely years in Portland, OR, but are now back in New York. My goal is to create and share poetry with others who write, or simply enjoy reading poetry. I hope to touch a nerve in you, and feel your sparks as well.

    Love the comparison … kisses to a fiery sermon.
