>friendship and love monday poetry potluck #18-languages,signs and symbols

>Te quiero, mi amor …
signs we give to others
Mi vida …
symbols of ourselves.
We wind round a spiral catching
the wind in our hands.
As if dipping into saccharine sweetness,
like syrup that attracts honeybees.
Apis mellifera
A sincere gesture,
symbolic nature of a soft caress against
an arm, a kiss upon the cheek,
it’s the sign of friendship.
Romance in a foreign language
deciphers truth and love,
like a light that shines through the darkest tunnel,
clearing up the way.
Pinpricks of speckled awareness of
languages, signs and symbols.
