The air was full of you

They say a poem's not really a poem until you share it with someone else. And that's what this place is all about.

The air was full of you

*

In the instant
you raised your arms
to enfold my shoulders
my feet lost touch
with the ground.

You placed me
on a swing
and pushed me
into the current
of ascension.
I gathered speed
while the wind
got wild
with my hair
and sighed
into my ears.

I shed all my worries
and let them fly away,
in loose fragments
never to assemble again.
The air was full of you.
Your grace guided me
to the source
of your fragrance.

You kept me airborne
in those heights of
weightlessness
in the very center
of Love.

Just a moment in time
but you labelled it
with your name.
This song will dwell
forevermore
within my core.

It will not fade
it is a duet now
played by
your heartstrings
and mine
out of time
in this present moment
of incorruptible beauty
which generates
only Love
in its most
brilliant colors.

Love is the One who masters all things;
I am mastered totally by Love.

A delightful piece; could sense the softness and lightness of your words, piercing my spirit with an upward lift; wonderfully conceived!

Margerhita,
This poem was a great way to bring back memories. To this day, I still can't resist a swing when I see one.
