Mystic Peppercorns

The Color Of Your Ribbon
 
I love the color of your ribbon
Speaks life to your hair
Sings roses to your smile
I love the color of your ribbon.
 
There is twinkle
In every leaf you touch
Each leaf resonantly sigh admiration
Breathing in sunlight seeking
Oneness with mystic you.
 
Is you is nature.
 
Could I but sing glory to a rose
Not less your radiant eyes
Aglow in the flowering mallow fields
Of sighing sun soaked  ambergris petals
Not less the hues of lavender across
The green vines tricolored peppercorns
 
Not less you
I love the color of your ribbon.

My campus girlfriend in college, a beautiful mystical person, showed up on a date with equally dazzling mystical lavender ribbon on her satin black hair. I was floored! We had a wonderful dinner and saw a mystery movie that remained totally "mysterious" to me as I plainly just enjoyed her company.

"Not less your radiant eyes." Very pretty! Love this memory, forever captured in a poem. This is why I love poetry.

Beautiful, and very romantic that you would notice her beautiful ribbon, and enjoy her company so much.

It sounds like you two had a very nice time together. If you still keep in touch with her, you could send this poem to her. I imagine it would make her feel good.

Thanks Robert. Good idea. Yes we had a good time together, our souls Eros "archereid" all college time.

Even if it were not a "mystery" movie, I'm quite sure you will have remembered the story line. LOL

Nice poem!

We mysteriously disappeared, lost in the "plot" we enjoyed together that night back in the balcony. LOL
