Pure Love

by Cadence Beret


Stars
Snowflakes
Hearts
    is what you are made of

Brilliant and sparkly
Different and unique
Sweet and gentle love
    is what you are made of

Every time I think of you
I’m instantly reminded
Of the beauty all around me
And the love inside of me
    I love you my sweetie


Wintertime is nearing, and although it has yet to snow, I picture glittering starlike snowflakes gently tumbling from the sky when I read this poem. And no matter how cold or hardened I may have become, it still warms my heart to think of the person this poem was written for.

Made up of real thoughts and real emotions to describe a real person, Pure Love should certainly reside in the Realism category of Cadent Poems. But it’s clearly described through whimsy and fantasy – two of my favourite things to fall back on when writing poetry. So I lodged it in the Phantasism category along with other fabricated tales made up from bits of reality.
