Hibiscus

By Geo Cabral

Skin as white as winter
she was as pure as Christmas snow
I saw the northern star in her irises
eyes black as night, and as bright as moonlight
I followed it to her soul
Gentle as the ocean tides
I wanted to sink into her
She carried around the ocean in her lungs
and it seems mine have always been waiting to drown
I kissed her and there were no fireworks behind my eyelids
instead, I saw the Aurora Borealis dancing in the night sky
She is so beautiful
delicate as Christmas morning
and the flowers in springtime
