true cartography

True cartography
is following
the curves of your bones
with my eyes.

I have mapped
every steep hill
and
low bay
of your lovely disguise.
I live
in the shadows
of your lashes,
waiting slowly
for blinking
emerald gold flashes.

  1. Thank you for liking “Night Beauty” and for following my blog. This poem beautifully captures how being in love heightens your awareness of the person you love. It is a wonderful experience to dwell upon the beauty of your lover when you fall in love at least at first . . .
