Eyes of Chai & Milk

a love poem

eyes of chai and milk


the will to bud upon me.


skin and pulp of silt


for part of me

won't love me, (but)

the iris of your eyes -- the

chai and wisp of foam -- is

kind and warm, like home (in)

its gaze of want upon me.


I wish that I did see


you see when you look at me...


take on me is all that I

must call...


cure the ache and pull

the vim and life out of me.


eyes of chai and milk


the kiss that I so need so I

don't fade away or wilt -- a

hug -- so soft and pure -- of sun,

and dove,

and lust,

and eve,

and silk;


if only I was just as kind

(to me) as all

your love and both

your eyes of chai and milk.

    Beautiful and heartfelt Gina. that object of the poem is so very fortunate. Well done.

  • Story got me to thinking......In University, I was an athlete and became a vegetarian for 3.5 years. One day, I walked into the athletes dining after eating for a few months in the same place and the kitchen staff and management approached me as the "representative" for all vegetarians of the future for vegetarians.....I guess I was on the cutting edge 25 years ago. They brought out a few thick binders with catalogs of what they thought vegetarians would eat. They needed me for guidance. Funny stuff.......I will never forget about it. The Ambassador of Vegetarians....story to come later.

    Ohh such magic, once again. I love the brevity here; works so well to focus in on the visual of his eyes and the quality of his love. What a gorgeous peek into how true love can overcome our own distaste for ourselves and make life richer. 💜
