2 Poems by Jennifer Hollie Bowles


If the little bird
is not prey, it does not pray.
We shall never pray.

Create Time With Me

We will live on a Lavender Moon with white-sage floors,
ethereal dried herbs manifested from our shared visions,
and when we make love, the Lavender Moon will wax.

We will play with the cycles of planets, turn the ebbed
emotions of mortal beings into catalysts, and beckon suns
to acquiesce inside longer nights, calm opalescent days.

We will remain bound to our Lavender Moon paradise
without intruders, until the abundance of our love births
green, growing things, cosmic chaos, and our recreation.

  1. I loved Create Time With Me, and I would read it to the one I love. In fact, I WILL read it to the eone I love. It has that vivid, breathlessly paced quality of true romantic poetry. Keep writing in this vein!
