Always That Something – a poem by Paul Vincent Cannon

RDP Sunday – Something



“One is not born, but rather becomes, a woman.”  Simone de Beauvoir

Always That Something

To be close to her is to
feel the cosmos
beating in my heart
running lucy’s diamonds,
essence of fairy dust,
pockets of poppies,
nosegays of lively moves,
handfuls of shooting stars
that tingle goosebumps
in ripples of swoon,
drenched in the purple
of mountains and
the turquoise of reefs,
always that something,
to be close to her is to
have it all.

  4. Gorgeous and what a tribute to “her.” Reminds me of The Carpenter’s song, “Close to you,” which is one of my favorites of theirs. “On the day that you were born, the angels got together and decided to create a dream come true…” ❤
