FRAGILESTRENGTH

lornapoetry by davidjoannes, february, 2001

somehow,

somewhere(behind
beneath) her steady strength:
bequeathed from
someplace past the
highsky lies
.delicacy.fragility.frailty.
of flimsy flowers’ elegancy

to hold her hand
across careless streets and
dancedancedance Oh.so sweet…

her shiningsmile serenading
kings to their knees
.and/or.
luminous twinkling in
her eyes terrifies
starry galaxies’ crinkling majesty

her beautystrength is the terror
of jealous stars
.selah

(however)
torrential skies pour liquidpebbles
upon defenceless flowerpetals
(the brutal stoning
of delicate beauty)
she is the whisper of
flimsy flowers’ fragilestrength elegancy

“hero!hero!” from the flood calls she
lady: your fragilestrength
arouses in me
chivalry
