Poetry – The Rise and Fall of the Sun

In this free verse poetry “The Rise and Fall of the Sun”.

Relationships need to time to ignite, two small flames flickering in a crazy, busy lifestyle. But certain things can change it. Add children into the mix, and boom. The flame has the possibility of going out. Unless there are great communication and understanding in place. A little free verse poetry about love and romance. A digital art piece to entice the imaginary.

They thought we were
a desert summer storm.
But they didn’t even know it was more,
In the heat of the night,
it’s possible to see dust plumes
scatter across a dark sky.
And a dampness of morning dew
across passionate ripples.
You were the dark sky
and I, a glistening star.
You could see our love
in the fall of shooting stars,
and as our glow of existence
settles in the sand, you’ll hear our
soft, quiet sighs with the
rise and fall of the sun.

  1. Hi Linda,
    Congratulations. Your post and your poem are clearly both hits. You were right about what you wrote about children affecting the dynamic of a marriage. Been there done that. That is why in my current marriage I chose not to have more children. We already have four between us.
    Maybe you can check out my blog. I blog over at mostlyblogging.com. I offer tips for bloggers and I host blog parties where you could meet new readers for your poems.

    1. Hi, Janice! Welcome and nice to meet you! Looking forward to reading more of your writing and post AND THANK YOU FOR STOPPING BY AND LEAVING SUCH A LOVELY COMMENT!
