Torn Between Two Lovers

"Winter is on my head, but eternal spring is in my heart." ~Victor Hugo

It's the last big freeze of the season I suppose....and then it will move toward spring.  I do love the spring, but it is the fall that truly holds my heart.

My heart is torn between two lovers
the golden autumn and the budding spring

my eyes are slaves to each one's beauty
yet their vision of glory makes me a king

I follow where they lead me
down the paths of season's steady flow

as I long to capture them both completely
but like a fickle girl they always let me go

no heart can truly serve two masters
nor hold more than one lover within it's grasp

so I shall be an ever restless admirer
of two loves whose true promise I cannot have.

To Be Filled

Linking with the wonderful folks at Poetry Jam
 Isn't that what we all seek?
We stand here
in this life
like empty bottles on a shelf
hoping for something good
something beautiful
or of substance
a morsel of nourishment
to fill the empty places
that only something
bigger can provide
but we must be
willing to take a step out
from where we stand
and be open
to the blessings given
if we are
  truly to be filled.
