The building blocks of language… letters. The alphabet is the beginning of recording our thoughts and what we have to say. Take a look at what Mantra did with the alphabet. This is her version of the ABCs.
Alone you will never be with me here
Because you are the very best friend
Confidante, companion, all ’round good egg.
Deep within your soul is happiness,
Even when you wear a frowning sneer.
From dawn ’til dusk, you shine light,
Grabbing the world to give it a shake.
Heart so big, it keeps safe all held dear,
In the midst of temper-tossed seas.
Joy lights your eyes with firework bursts,
Keeping a twinkle e’en when in a snit.
Laughter is genuine and delightful to hear,
Making me giggle or just shake my head.
Nightfall brings visions of hand-in-hand strolls
On a boardwalk, which has gotten lost.
Perhaps it’s okay, we can’t get there from here.
Quietly nestled, paused in each other’s arms.
Resting together, in wondrous repose.
Sleeping soundly to wake beside you at dawn,
The sunrise chasing out nightmarish fear.
Under a cloudless sky, we stop to smell
Violets and roses, clumped sweetly by our path.
Wet with dew and shimmering with beams,
Xylem supporting such delicate dreams.
You make me laugh and think ’til I’m totally
Zapped, and say… “I love you, truly.”
Merry Monday from me, M3 and the mischievous Mantra.
