Poem – Accidental Romance

What is this?
A second adolescence?
I know it is a new season
when I have the chance
once again
to flower, to sing,
to grow wings
and explore,
flying circles
around the gentle poet
who searched
within the cold,
lonely forest.

What is this?
An accidental romance
where I am elated
and stirred,
plunging into the sky,
to kiss the moon and stars,
weaving in and out
of your path,
melting obstacles
and at times,
for a brilliant moment,
my energized particles
colliding with yours,
in a pulsating embrace.

Where are they?
Those negligent
guardian angels
who can only hope that
in my reckless naiveté,
ignoring the shackles
and limitations,
I do not
once again
too close to the sun.
