Bearded Iris by Lisa Shea



Leon A. Walker

How did she know
That my eyes had fallen upon her
Leaving me in longing
A seeming desperate eternity

How did she feel
As I sprinkled rose petals in her path
Leaving me imagining
That she was lost in distraction

How did she simply smile
When I offered first breathless words
Leaving me perplexed
Switching off the sparkle in her eyes

How did she wait
As I paced the floor of my mind
Leaving me sequestered
As she orchestrated my suffering pangs beautiful

How did she decide
To drag me into her love´s lake
Leaving me eternal benefactor
Of shelter within the warm cocoon of her soul
