THE MATERIAL AND IMMATERIAL GARMENT OF LOVE / Poem by Roula Pollard

Poem by Roula Pollard

 

THE MATERIAL AND IMMATERIAL GARMENT OF LOVE

In the plantations of the sky in my heart
this is how new the history begins
almost silently, beyond contemporary trends
two kisses on the bed of my heart
two doves fly over my consciousness
two deep kisses on the lips of the mind
two kisses on the temple of your body
two flames inside me and you unite
without scaring the doves of the world
surrounding us, beyond the leftovers of war

My love begins with the history of peace
after all innocent bodies of young soldiers
sleep eternally bellow wildflowers and tears
at the edge of past time. Is it, it is where new
new love begins changing the history of the world and us
extending the dew of my hope beyond all I know?

Two kisses on the bed of your heart
two doves fly over our consciousness
two deep kisses on the lips of your mind
two kisses on the temple of your body
same flame inside you and me
