One Poem by Jade Nicole Beals



Where The Stones Warmed Our Feet 

 

In the shadows of the trees,
a hand reached out to me—
I was looking northward
where there was a raindrop party—


In the lack of lights from which a woman had taken
to make up her face,

 

I found the red trees I lounged beneath
vigorous, ready to spark, unprovoked.

Not all those who are lost wander…

 

and I did not look up high enough to see the moon
when my love just then descended so near to me
with a kiss so red of heaven, a touch firm and pure—
And then a sweeping caress—


Not all those who are lost wander,
and not all those who lose themselves are lost.
