THE POETIC BLOOMINGS READING ROOM #30

A short while back, Marie Elena properly introduced us to a voice we’ve loved for years. It’s funny how putting a face to the words of a favored poet raises them to even more esteem by their sheer presence. We’ve known her as Candy. But I have always bristled at nicknames, thinking that one so talented should flaunt their accomplishments in their own name. (Yes Marie, there are times I’m not one to practice what I preach.) Candace Kubinec graces many of the more popular poetry sites, but today her words are ours to share with you in this edition of the POETIC BLOOMINGS READING ROOM. Our selection is entitled: “Falling In Love All Over Again” by Candace Kubinec.

FALLING IN LOVE ALL OVER AGAIN, by Candace Kubinec

It’s happening again
My love affair with summer
Is beginning to wane and
My heart is being slyly stolen

By cool nights made for reading
And warm apple cider
The trees are hinting at the
Changes coming – reds and
Vibrant yellows and mellow oranges
A show of true colors that
Make my soul pause in adoration
It’s happening again

To this devotee of the sun’s
Brilliance – this lover of nights
Perfumed with honeysuckle
I am seduced by this changeling

and I’m falling in love all over again
