And BELOW is my offering for the 1ST prompt of the

Phoenix Rising Poetry Guild - "The Sound of Love":




Universal Love Song


 


Earth offers up her serenade


in the nurturing hush of snowfall,


in the soft, soothing patter


of gentle rain on the roof


or timpani of thunder


accompanied by flashes of lightning


slashing the night sky;


 


a ballad of chirping birdsong,


squirrel and chipmunk chatter,


whispering zephyr,


susurrations of shivering leaves


and frozen streams, running still,


beneath a lace


of ice and snow;


 


the minstrel silver silence


of moonlight


as it slips between the blinds


and over the sill


to settle on my pillow,


sending me back to sleep


with a beloved’s smile.
