Great spirits have always found violent opposition from mediocrities. The latter cannot understand it when a man does not thoughtlessly submit to hereditary prejudices but honestly and courageously uses his intelligence. - Albert Einstein

In Love With the goddess


27 nominations

I always marvel At the loud silence of this place By the freezing romantic touch of the breeze Against my sumersaulting skin I watch the mountain’s peak Kiss the happy clouds I listen to the songs of the butterflies As they gyrate over the waters I watch the wind as it hugs the trees And shoves their hair backwards Even the grasses would bend over Muttering messages into my ears The fishes too, would whisper fantasies into my eyes As they perform their circus Yes, I’m in love with the goddess… I always melt When the music of the free birds Caress my tender, vessel heart When serenity overwhelms me And forces me into euphoria When my mind walks away my body And journeys to places Places I never thought I could be Beating into me the unfamiliar tunes of a familiar dance Causing me a temporal insanity As though I’m in a trance As the river goddess seduces my thoughts As my ink overflows my paper Bringing forth the most romantic of all poems Yes, I’m in love with the goddess of poetry.
