Secret Spinner- M.E. InkOwl


Wrapped in time upon a mountain’s ledge,

Buried deep between evergreen leaves,

And covered in a summer’s rain,

A secret was spun.

Delicate as a spider’s web drifting upon the wind,

It settled itself there upon a path,

Waiting for my wandering soul to find,

A tale began to grow.

Undone was the passion so richly possessed by this world,

I could not find words to seal that which cried to be bound within my arms,

I sought to lock it away where none would find it,

A love so profound bloomed.

But lo, you found me upon my way and looked upon this open soul,

This wonder that I had was now shared twining our being as one,

Ever growing along this winding trail,

A gnarled tree remembered.

So we now in eternity’s embrace shall be,

Folded round by the rings of a cosmic evergreen,

Our secret love lasting between root and stone,

A passion only known to us.

    • Thank you! It was fun to start the threat of a story in the middle of a poem and weave my own story web through it. Much of the time ai have no idea where my writing will be telling me and other times I do.
