Poetry – I Fell In Love

I Fell In Love


I fell in love with you

The first time

My eyes opened;

As you swirled and spun

In your green and blue raiment,

With your white wisps

Of gossamer

Covering your curves.


I fell in love with you

As seasons changed

The colours of your clothes,

As creature played

Among the fabric

Of your dress,

As night and day

Played with the

Shadows on your face.


I fell in love with you.

This is my ode to the planet, to nature, the mother of us all; an ode to the majesty and beauty of our maternal home.


What is there not to love about such splendour, such grace and such mystery?


It is an honour to call this home, to look out in wonder at a whole universe.


It is incredible to close ones eyes and imagine us spinning through space in this cosmic dance around the sun, around the galaxy, through the cosmos.


It blows my mind.
