Love is in the air

The winter too long

Branches too bare

Shadows too solemn

The air too bleak

And then you hovered

A promising blush

Soft and beguiling

Melting the snow

You warmed my heart

Quickened my pulse

Exhaled my breath

Clouded my judgement

I have fallen for you!

    1. The good old Cape. This is the Lion’s head of Table Mountain in Cape Town taken from the city centre below. I managed to steal time at dusk and do a bit of sightseeing. I’m determined to smell the roses or feel the sea breeze this time around.

  1. I love the translucence of the cloud in your photo, how shades of sun fill it up. The poem might be about spring sunshine after a long winter, or finding love thought to be lost. The last stanza and final line are gorgeous and universal, the ones that resonated most with me. Glad you’re finding time to write, Chevvy! 🙂

    1. It is gorgeous isn’t it? I watched the clouds descend over the mountain, very misty at first and then magically transformed by the sun. I’ve had to declutter a few things in my head in order to write 😉 Spring is close and I’m looking forward to more of that first blush!
