Love Makes The World Go Flat

Poem By Tom Billsborough

Love makes the world go flat,
Sparkling seascapes sweeping out
From rolling downs of wide horizons.
Shimmering skies absorbing eyes.
And the orisons of a lone lark
Suspended overhead signal
Our desire and hope to gather in
The supportive silence.
We grow like giant statues
In our love, so tall, so motionless,
In our embrace.

Comments about Love Makes The World Go Flat

A good play on words 'love makes the world go round'. You suggest the negative side of love in a tour de force.
Beautiful poem, Tom.......
Tom, love this poem, I'm putting it on my poets list
Wonderful. I too very often long to be embraced by absolute silence, having to put up with too much noise these days (right now there's a van going about with a megaphone blaring endlessly about their fresh-from-the-farm eggs!) . I will rate it with a 10, though I know Tom doesn't need my points, having already busted the scales. On second thought, if the blokes from 'Spinal Tap' did manage to go to 11 in their amps, why can't we go to 7 here? Will have to talk to the webmaster about that. Only drawback: now I'll have to keep on reading more of Tom's poems, just when I had it in my mind to sit down to work! ... Rod
A pretty poem. Love, seascape and hope. Blue sea in our heart.

My eyes now follow
Trajectories of shadows.
Deep, dark green hollows
Beneath the elder,

I Saw You Often

I saw you often with your head bowed low,
As if in sorrow from some awful wound,
Inflicted long ago.
And even when you smiled

I Am Here

I am here and you are there

Pacific Days

Washing the barrier reef, the Coral sea,
Brings fresh nutrients to the coral blooms,
Chrysanthemums in splendour
Where fishes of deep orange, blue
