For My Friend
by Keith D Allison
How often she
in the glow of Angels wings
in the taste of cotton candy
Drawing from the darkness
bringing forth the light
to the garden
she is the rose
the turning of soil
in labors of the heart
gently wrapping the tear
facing the world
she is the kiss, in the morning light

Hi Keith. This is so tender. Full of weightless whisps of hope and love. You have touching vision and a gentle pen. Thanks.

Keith, your form, the way you use white space, the words you use - everything suggests tenderness and love. This must be one special woman.

I love cotton candy, and I would love to have the fragrance of that sweet delicacy used in association with me. Congratulations on POTD. This is a tender portrait of someone obviously very special.

It's my guess that you will soon be more than friends after this communique. Heartfelt and ethereal, Keith. I really like the subtle symbolism and the way your open-ended close lends itself to a sequel. Congratulations on becoming The Poem Of The Day.
