POEM -- Untitled 6 -- Help me name this poem!
by Thomas Herr
Like a sweet droplet
Of vital morning dew in the desert
Crystal clear and pure
She is suspended before me like a jewel.
The secret of love lies within her
She is the sun
Warm strong life for me
There, near the center of the winter web at dawn.
Or, like a dew-diamond
She is a glimmer of hope
For a lonely miner
Chipping and toiling for love or life at the entrance to the cave.
And there she is
Suspended in a perfect frame
From the depths
She reflects eons of perfect light to entice me
Like the lucky pebbles and stones
I collect in my pocket
I leave a hole in my heart
It’s a place where I can tuck away her love.
