Her Bonds - Dec. 22, 2010



Her Bonds

He tunes the bonds which hang on the mirror of the sea
Revealing deep meanings in the vaguest air
She likes to speak of him to me
When her day catches fire
And loses flair

She tells me of the good things he makes her feel
When he tunes the bonds up and down
Yet she wonders what is real
And if that mirror
Makes her world go round

Perfect joy she says he has shown her now
Seems that her cup runneth over
Yet as serenity takes a bow
Those deep meanings
Fail to hold her

She likes to speak of him to me on her cloudy days
I look through her eyes and see the truth
She tunes the bonds in her own way
And when her day catches fire
He becomes her excuse

  2. Sounds like love/a longing/ a knowing/ and a questioning. But a "truth" seen within it. Takes my breath & the photo is so stunning! This is amazingly beautiful Neva. ~So glad to get a chance to come back and read your writing! :) ~April

  6. "Tunes the bonds" is such an intriguing phrase. I like a poem like this that I can re-read at least a couple of times and get something new out of it each time...
