Purple Petal

by Loki

She floats on chiseled petals of amethyst where she can rest
as others walk beneath her on steps of simple stone.
Many cannot see her as she is beauties riddle eternal.
My thoughts are oft aloft in soft clouds of her written words.
I toil away a thousand petals a day to keep her unrest at bay
so she may drift in peace with purple geese and swans to the stars.

Beauty so breathtaking is awakening with the opening of her eyes an
Every heart will rise and marvel to stare into the wonders therein.
Amethyst petals dance before her casting violet lights that adore her.
Under the blow of my hammer I sing love in every petal so she may know
The friendship that we chanced upon makes my heart dance to the dawn.
You are a festival of lights to behold, beaming beauty beyond the world.

By Anthony S. Parker

    I'm glad you liked it, I was thinking of some of the common things that frustrate you and how I appreciate you always being a a friend reader and ample source of advice and inspiration and patience when we discuss poetry, and other things that I can't remember haha but basically like I said I wanted to say thank you without simply saying thank you.
