“The Love Ravine” ~a poem by Linda Willows

When the white bends
it falls so far
so deeply from
the Bright, its’ Star.
Alone it keeps
it’s darkened plight.
The flower weeps.
It lives in night.
It grasps, it seeks
it needs, it keeps…
the flower’s Light,
Its Lover sleeps.

What Breath to press
upon such need,
to bend the true
Love’s budding feed?
Come breathe, come flow,
vein open, all to go.
This bending aching
Light’s retraction
needs the full and due
of Love extraction.
Come, the breathing,
come, the air.
Come this bright’s
it calls despair.

Beauty pressing,
naked petals.
All the longing lives between.
Leave the bending, unrelenting
founded folded to now to be seen.
Let the way
that touched the air
and found it fair
return to light, repeal, repent
Oh, Bright…just dare.

The white must blossom
Take the day
No other bend
may shape the way
Come anywhere,
come as before
come with no tear,
come with no war.
Bring all the Bright,
all seen between,
send each as true
in thy Brightened Being
Bend the Light now redeemed,
forsaken from the Love Ravine.

  1. My dearest Linda ..if this White flower could read your poem for sure it will weep from Happiness…many symbolisms with so deeply meanings reveal the purity as Love is. …strong spiritual words and dare to say a kind of prophecy included..AMAZING!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!


  2. Linda, I feel tremendous light through this piece. In our bending and breaking, the light comes through so that we are always becoming more, becoming stronger in ourselves (in the one). Even in the shadows, we attract the light. I love this, and the strength of spirit that works through your words. Beautiful emotion. ~ Much love, Bobbie


  3. Breathtakingly beautiful…while being illuminated by the love of the One who colors your words with His living light, and breath so majestically! A very special offering of real love! Awesome embracing image, with a very awesome poem! Beautifully done Linda!


  4. Linda, the one word that comes to mind immediately is “breathtaking” and Wendell beat me to it! Nonetheless, your words and beautiful images painted are breathtaking and so is your soul! I apologize for my absence; going very slow in blogland and very behind, so now I’m catching up with you! Hugs! xo


  5. … The lone little white illuminates the darkest and furthest away … because it must – because as small as it is, as alone as it is, it holds light; and even the tiniest light will reach towards its Source … because it loves. Beautiful, beautiful poem and sharing, my dear friend. ~ Much love, Julie xoxox
