Serendipity

Such chance, as from the chrysalis with wings We met
Extended – we were as butterflies — we
Reached for skies when night was fireflies.
Ecstasy as one we danced, we tickled toes.
No mountain path before us, no sea to cross.
Delight was borderless. More than less, amalgamation.
Intoxicated we were lost and found.
Perfumed we honeysuckled. Slept. Cocooned.
Inflicted lust. Again. Again and then again.
Toxic you, my opiate, my glee.
You my charm, you till morning breaks.

Passionate Lovers VII by Corneille

  1. Somewhere between Don Juan & the aged librarian–there is much of the romantic classic poem with a touch of modern angst; terrific use of an Acrostic–good enough that one might not notice its form if encountered sans caps.

  2. One of my favourite words of all time – serendipity! It was the name of an old BBC children’s TV programme and when I looked up the meaning up I fell in love with it. I also love your poem, Bjorn, especially:
    ‘Extended – we were as butterflies — we
    Reached for skies when night was fireflies’
    and
    ‘Perfumed we honeysuckled. Slept. Cocooned.’

  3. I love the exuberance and the wonderful phraseology, particularly ‘Perfumed we honeysuckled’. Also the image is a perfect accompaniment!

    Toxic you, my opiate, my glee.
    You my charm, you till morning breaks.

    What bliss having found one’s own loved one!
