A Poem By Hannah W. // 6/1/2010

Such recluse backdropped by evening's fields
all spiky white in bloom
for fear of treading bees, wander with care;
not one for wearing shoes.

Such mind enclosed, and wreathed in sun
its glow revealing dust
more threadbare each year do we find the couch,
yet find such things, we must.

My dear, in secrecy of thought
so silently, I should--
yet I cannot disrupt the quiet hum
or a weeping dove, disturb.

A vase of amber glass reflected
so kneel, and hemmed inside
a shard of amber light refracted
through the mirror of your eye.

Ever seek the summer evening's fields
kneel among the fleshy blooms
for fear of treading bees, wander with care;
but do wander, my recluse.

Brother: Your character should drive a motorcycle.
Me: He can't. He's in the wilderness.
Brother: Then make it a four-wheel-drive motorcycle!


Lovely.  I loved it to pieces.  The last stanza is my favorite...especially:

for fear of treading bees, wander with care;

but do wander, my recluse.

The imagery in all your writing is indescribable. You need to write a collection of poems (and include all the ones on AP!!!!) and send it straight to me!

The collection of poems suggested by Erin should be published! This is so beautiful...I could read it over and over. I think I might.
