When a woman loves

“I love you as certain dark things are to be loved, in secret, between the shadow and the soul” ~P.Neruda

When a woman loves

Mornings, ambrosial bouquet I remember,
pancakes and the taste of honey on my lips,
long time ago, I heard a song on the radio,
“When a woman loves” was the name, I think.

Was it real? The moment, the lyrics.
Was I that woman? The love, the feelings.
I can’t find the frequency to follow the rhythm.
Were there a dress and jeans swept on the beach?

When a woman loves. Did I ever?
Sullen, salted feathers in the nest, I whisper,
does fate step on a ground already walked?
Breeze polishing pearls, it wasn’t a dream, I feel it.

    How many times we go back and doubt the validity of our perceptions and feelings. A lovely and true poem, Blaga, and a fine photograph to complement it. Enjoyed! ;-)

    Stunningly beautiful and touching. Women’s love seems so much more sincere than men’s. To say that English is not your first language, your command of it is awesome. Well done.

      I think how sincere love is, it doesn’t depend on if you are a man or a woman, but on what kind of a man or a woman you are … Thank you for the nice words about the command of English, coming from you they mean a lot!
