Abstract Love

Poetry is turning out to be a very cathartic medium, I should do this more often.

Set the Mood

abstract-love

Walking through the forest,

I came upon a gorgeous tree.

I sat beneath her vibrant leaves,

And she welcomed me into her shade.


The breeze kissed my cheeks soft,

As I gazed up at her beauty.

It nearly brought a tear to my eye,

Knowing this moment was fleeting.


But I could not dwell in the thought,

That I’d soon be leaving the forest.

No, she deserved all my attention,

And she let her leaves fall upon me.


As I caught the leaves that fell,

I was excited for her attentions.

A silent acknowledgment of my heart,

Leads me to linger that much longer.


It wasn’t a bother to her at all,

That I fell asleep at her strong roots.

She shaded me from the harsh sun,

As I dreamed of climbing her heights.


Awaken to her standing proudly over me,

Stronger love than any before her.

Offering a lingering look upon her,

I shed a tear as it was time I left.


Thinking to myself thoughts so sweet,

I'll return to her and bask once more.

Others will immerse in her glory,

But the heart of the forest beats for me.

Lovers New and Past

Connect with a lover today, the times are calling out for it. The times are calling for you to immerse in the being of another, and to let the ecstasy of love overflow your cup. It is greedy to hide your heart, hoard your abundant love within it, and I know that generosity is your desire.

Lovers new and past, flock to one another and let love envelope your entirety!

Thank you, Laurie, I'm happy to hear that this poem can resonate with you on a deeper level. I'm more into immersing in the simplicity of the beauty within nature than learning its complexities, but I can imagine just how connected you feel to it all having a stronger interest.

OMgosh I love this! I love the way you describe everything so enlightening. I love trees, too. I actually studied Forestry in college, but didn't finish. Dropped out. That was back in the day, of course! 1975-76! Oh, I'm giving away my age. LOL

Take Care Kyler, you keep my imagination craving more.

Thanks for reading and commenting, Miss Dora!

I love the implications in the image of the tree letting her leaves fall on us. Nature gives so much in so many ways. Good thoughts!

Thank you, Lorna, I'm happy to hear you enjoyed it!

A timeless love held within the heart of the forest. A beautiful analogy Kyler wrapped up in a wonderful poem. I loved it.

@Brenda: Thank you!

@Shauna: That sounds lovely, Shauna, my love of nature certainly helped in writing this little figurative poem. Women and nature, what more could a man ask for?

I know this poem is metaphoric, but I love majestic trees with flowing limbs and large canopies. When I lived in Ft. Lauderdale, there was a park I'd go to and take a nap under a huge oak tree. It was so peaceful to fall asleep to the sounds of nature and awaken gently to more of the same.

BRENDA ARLEDGE from Washington Court House on April 02, 2020:

A feeling of pleasure indeed.

Thanks for sharing.

Thank you, Pamela, it would seem I did quite well at hiding what this poem symbolizes for me within the image I tried to paint of it.

Pamela Oglesby from Sunny Florida on April 02, 2020:

I love large trees ans all of nature. I really like your poem, Kyker.

Kyler J Falk (author) from Corona, CA on April 02, 2020:

Thank you, Ruby, and I see it took you to a very interesting place in your mind.

Ruby Jean Richert from Southern Illinois on April 02, 2020:

I love to find an old tree in the forest. My mind wonders just what it's seen in the past? I have stopped at old abandon houses and saw old trees with initials carved in a heart depicting lovers once lived there. Your poetry words were compelling.

Your innocent view of the abstract layers within this poem is endearing, RoadMonkey, thank you for commenting!

To me, the tree realizes its beauty and shares it with the world, but her true love is me, because I enjoy projecting my own desires upon the concept.

RoadMonkey on April 02, 2020:

The tree has no jealousy and welcomes all for as long or short a time as they wish to stay.

Kyler J Falk (author) from Corona, CA on April 02, 2020:

Thank you, Fam, I enjoyed the positive emotions that your comment instilled within me!
