31daypoem challenge: Day 21

I may not know your name yet,
but I dream of warm, delicate sunset

where I sense you in the sweetness
of summer watermelons

you are too far, distant to fetch
like stars, my hands unable to catch.

I may not know the color of your eyes,
but I would recognize your kindness,

a tender gesture of a stranger passing by
when tired day spits me out

and my heavy, wrinkled sigh is caught
in a gentle grip and contagious smile.

I may not know of your past
but I would hear your silent prayer

where you long for fragile moments
those diamond years crushed to dust,

for missed glittering winter dawns,
erased touch, forgotten so fast.

I may not know your language yet,
but you and only you would understand

the story I’m about to tell:
a story of a girl who’s eagerness ignites

leaves the trail of light behind.
Feathered step, rose petals that excite

like butterfly dance in the stormy wind
tempestuous emotion, shown for a second

a scent, a hint, exhilarating
sting to any sleepy heart

awakening love buried deep,
mending hope that’s teared apart.

Her soul is moon, faint and dim
as seen through tree branches,

but soft and inviting, staunchest
in any life mystery.

Her hair like a wavy tapestry
of cascading Irish basalt

frames her silky face,
cherry lips, slightly apart

with each breath tremble,
like a leaf on a sudden breeze.

Her eyes, deep green
mountain lakes hide secret,

fragments of fear, haunted
deer in the spring meadow,

which only men with pure intentions
could comprehend, could see.

She is small, spindle and thin
always accompanied by a shadow

of red umbrella, bouncing in her hand
as she collects rain and white pebbles

at the nearby river bank. Her dress,
neatly ironed, patchworked cotton

apostrophizes her hourglass shape.
An ivory button adorns

her neck as collar lace
over-brims her firm breasts.

And also something shiny,
an ikon, heavy but tiny

that rests on her belly
while she sleeps

and sometimes dangles,
swings like a pendulum

from an oversized chain
around her chest when she

plays out in the watery stains.
Made of special stone,

mirroring cerulean skies
of the day earth gave birth

to her, anyone mean who touches
it three times, immediately dies.

It hangs there, like a charm
to keep her safe from a dangerous

world, world she thought once knew
but deceived her, nothing she feels

anymore is really true. I want to
tell you of that particular night

when he came, heir of the of the
Southern Land to steal her peace

beauty and innocence. He was tall
and strong, with arms that could build

castle walls and  dark brown hair like
fur of the bear. His robe, unwavering

steel of ocean shells draped
posture a of skerry, resisting

any erosive attempts. But his face was
a kite, furious dragon prepared

any time to strike. Pretending
to be an oak tree where at early evening

she would like to rest, a sudden rustle,
a giant nest appeared on the trunk

to swallow her virgin body, in
such rush of entwining, devastating

hug, braided leafs around
her thighs pressed her deeper and

deeper in the mud. Surprised
by a sudden ravishing thrust,

instead of letting her body
to lie, fragile, limped and

crushed with all the strength
she could collect her pearl

white grin transformed into
a sharp gob, a cutting edge

to obtruncate the choking sedge,
making her relentlessly to sob.

Ripped and curled, instead there
was now a man, man covered

in blood pouring from his head,
in crimson flames searing the rest

of his blame.Feared of that
piece of skin stuck among

her teeth, in overflowing disgust
and shame she pukes out the ear of

that violent scavenger, beast
ready to feast on her naivety.

With no brevity, she began to ran,
fast as she could as red drops

dripped from the soft fabric
that caressed her feet. Finally

cradled in the forest’s lap
she swore that no man

would ever dishonor, torture
or taunt her again:

Whoever speaks, thinks or deeds
evil of me will endure excruciating

pain, forever be turned in a
wandering ghost, invisible

soul to be endlessly in search
for love but never finding,

just aimlessly float
in grief and loss!

Then a sudden blow, a frisky
wind whirl whispered in

between her tears:
There, where golden and silver

mushrooms mate, near
the Purple creek in a small,
