The Font of nature #poetic script

LORA: This world has taken you my love. The oceans dissolve our intimacy, and vast new lands seek to replace me!

PAUL: Weep not my beauty, lest your heart falters. The stars here may not align with those at home; but I plot them all the same– as we did our parting night. Constellations forged by our love.

The Font of nature
Written in the darkest skies
My way back to you

LORA: Leave me be my truest, forget me! For memory aches and my heart quakes; your absence pounding and ripping at its seams!

PAUL: Think not that, I beseech you my blossom. For each day I limp the tunnels of time; and they are not dark, for they grow lush with this love we have nurtured.

The Font of nature
Rewarding a Gardener's hands
Blooms of commitment

LORA: Where be thou these lonely nights? Your glimmer fades in darkest dreams. Tell me my love; why oh why has time cursed us so?! That my nights be your days, and your days be my nights. Fleeting texts and calls, but pale ghosts of affection!

PAUL: Yet those fleets I cradle, and yet those texts I frame upon my very heart. Hold on my angel, just a few months left. For though our love may seem dormant; it does not languish. It only grows stronger.

My way back to you!

LORA: Months you say but each day is a year! The scented meadows now waft the fragrance of loneliness. The bright summer sun but exposes the void left behind; and the ocean embodies the breadth of separation!

PAUL: Despair not, I beg you my dearest. Listen to the summer sparrows, gaze upon the pink flamingos, and wake to the pelican calls. Let them be a sign. Let them tell you that you are my home; and I will always find my way back!

Used to divine destinies

Hope you enjoy this. Eager for your thoughts.

My old version of the WordPress app with classic editor finally broke down, and I had to download the latest. I’m still getting used to the block editor with bad line spacing for poetry and verse, but I’ll have to make it work.

For;

Stay safe everyone. Stay loving.

My little gem on Amazon:

      Thank you so much Sadje. I put alot of depth in this and all the haiku are layered but the one for your image has an extra bit I thought you might enjoy. The dotted i is the man as seen in the photo and the crossed t is the same man as seen from above. tho the full meaning of the line is just that man has a significant hand in the font of nature.

    As for the block editor, it takes some getting used to but once you get the hang of it, it works fine.

    I love you dialogue approach, Jude, and you have blended it beautifully with your poetry. The last haiku and your title is Bravo worthy! ❣️🌹

    Once you get used to the new editor I think you will love it. I don’t use the verse option for my poetry because it is too wonky for me. I use the paragraph option. 😊

      I’m just worried the spacing will make the poetry feel much longer than it really is.

  8. Methinks Lora doth protest too much! Ha,ha,ha It has that melodramatic teenage love fit to rival Shakepeare’s Romeo and Juliet.

      Haha, she does love her love affirmations. Maybe she just wants to keep him on his toes and get him back at the closest opportunity.
      As for the rivalling Romeo and Juliet, that might be a compliment I’m very unworthy of. Shakespeare’s work is divine. But I’m humbled by your comparison Melanie πŸ™πŸΎπŸ’œ

      1. One of my favorite fun facts; When William Shakespeare was writing his plays there were no such things as dictionaries! You couldn’t tell him he spelled something wrong, because there was no agreement or reference on how things should have been spelled at the time!

      Hehe thank you so much Reena. I’m posting once a week so i try to see which of my fav prompts can align, inspire, and embellish the message I want to deliver in a post. I try not to force it though. Last week my post couldn’t align with any.😭
      When I’m done with my first draft of the novel, I’ll try to increase the frequency of posts back to 3 a week.
