Lacustrine Heart

Unravel the day

in solferino rivers

that flow to

Eden’s cor.

Unzip my skin,

unwrap lacustrine heart

beside the Horseshoe,

my world’s waters,

and let me simply drink

of Adam’s ale.

Inspired by the morning sky. Not adequately captured by The Droid.

    Wow, I like it but I’m not sure I understand. Sounds sexy? No? Help me, what does Lacustrine, Solferino mean – dumb questions? Sorry, I just don’t know.
    But I like it just the same.

      Hmm. I know what it means to me, but I’m not sure I’m supposed to tell you. The question is–what does it mean to *you*?

      And not dumb questions. I had to look the words up, too.

      And one of the tags might give a hint . . .

      Oh, and Happy Birthday!

    Hi Sandra! Is it about a flowing heart? This poem is very deep. You have to analyze it word for word. I can’t get it what do mean by Horseshoe?

      It could be about a flowing heart if you wanted it to be. ;)

      I grew up on a lake called Horseshoe Lake. Life was much simpler then. (hint)
