“My soul is from elsewhere, I’m sure of that, and I intend to end up there.” Rumi

I Fell

You held a window in your palm,
your heart in clear view
tinged with mango and lime
like your lips,
soft spiced dew,
blew the wind,
the dove,
your hair flew as an
offering to the world,
double pressed,
after the love flood,
a wonder in peach and white,
I fell through your window.

  4. The first line was so unique, a window in the palm of her hands, luring one in. The details are divine. Especially love “your hair flew as an offering to the world”.
