Divine Theft

Does somebody up there hate me
for turning your dew into honey?
for tasting despite the drought?

Does somebody up there hate you
for stirring my clouds into rainbows?
for defying the darkness that shadows?

Does somebody up there hate us
for replacing tears with stars?
for impregnating happiness?
for building a fire around our arctic hearts?
for sampling the sweetness of love?

(This is part of a collaborative poetic effort between myself and jadedmess: Make sure and check out her blog here.)

  1. i think somebody up there does hate us… i love the imagery in this poem, especially the fire around the arctic heart… very nice.

    Amazing again. Great concept and beautifully written by you both 🙂

    It does seem that we sometimes tempt fate with our happiness, doesn’t it? Or maybe that’s just me, feeling that when things are going to well, the other shoe is going to drop. Fantastic poem that I’m sure will resonate with many readers, Benjamin.

      No, I think your right. I think we tempt a great many things, not fully caring about the consequences until it is too late. Again, I couldn’t write any of these poems without Jadedmess; she’s great to work with and has great ideas that I wouldn’t probably think of by myself. Thanks again, Miranda.

    Divine indeed!! Sad that we often wait for the theft and, thereby, miss the moment to some extent. If we could only let go the fear, how much brighter the moment! However, we are but human I suppose!! 🙂 (what a shame!) 🙂 Great poem…thanks to you both!
