"Loving Me In Your Eyes" (by Joe DiMino)

Sometimes a deep sadness
Comes over me; that winter
Of thought settling 
(Iced as sliver fox in steel jaws);

For certain all beauty
Has its fair seasons

But then—the inevitable parting:
Back to dust
Those scattering breezes
The loving breast of Mother Nature
Turned off
A soulless teat
I recall the child in me
Seeing only rainbows
Where there were also
Obvious wastelands
Jagged peaks
Winds sweeping through
Stone corridors
Bearing no melodies
Just hard realities

If given the power
To turn back time
It would be dew
On the perfect rose
The scent of apple blossoms
Sunrise on your hair 
And loving me 
Still in your eyes
