As your beauty unfolded.

As your beauty unfolds before me I am reminded… That no matter how well you guard something it can always be lost… Or in this case did I give it away?

As your beauty unfolds before me I am reminded… That you cannot walk forward to a place that you have already passed… And you should always welcome a new day with more joy than the last…

Much smarter now… There are urgent matters at hand… There are urgent hands that matter… Touching places that have not existed… Until your beauty unfolded before me… Gloriously…

Until your beauty unfolded before me I thought passion existed only in the minds of Poets and songwriters… And it seems I have become one of them… Because You have become my favorite song…

And when I am not singing it I hear its music as I recite… Words that describe you…

And words that can’t describe you… Tapping my feet as some type of continuous applause… This would have been strange behavior…Before your beauty unfolded before me Passionately…

Until your beauty unfolded before me… Time had a pace that outran me… During workdays and lonely days… Time had another name Loneliness…

It is Next time, your time… That is what is important nowadays… The next time I am next to you Precious time… No longer my enemy

Before your beauty unfolded before me… Instantly… Isn’t it funny? That a heart once so weak Beats rhythmically sending a message… Through the jungle that announces… A new space inside of itself where only visions of you cover the walls…

With unfolded beauty… That caresses every sense… Touch everlasting and untouchable…

Since your beauty unfolded before me… Tastes like what Mama puts in her food…

Since your beauty unfolded before me… Smells like the grass after the rain falls…

Since your beauty unfolded before me… Sounds once foreign sound like we…

Since your beauty unfolded before me… Mercifully looks like you…

Since your beauty unfolded before me… Standing there in an archway with my Heart… Secure in your hands… Its fluorescent light only out shined by the smile you wear for only me…

A slight tilt of my head enables me to recognize Love… Beautifully… Gloriously… Passionately… Instantly… Mercifully…

As your beauty unfolded before me Finally I did understand…

It was in my darkest hour that I realized the light came from within… That was when I truly learned that I wasn’t blinded…

My eyes were closed…. All this as your beauty unfolded before my eyes…

Hey Destiny Poets. I live in Denmark about 90 km from Copenhagen and works in Roskilde as a teacher and mentor. I'm probably not like most men of my age and yes I am aged 50 years old. I've tried a lot of jobs without finding what I'm passionate about. Writing, I have always loved and I was probably just 14 years old when I produced my first poem. I have not yet been released some of my poems, but I hope it happens one day. I just finished a novel which I would like to have published, now the time and talent show whether I have the ability to write. Poetry has a special meaning for me and this is where I really feel at home. My life has sometimes been marked by many losses. In the mid eighties, I lost my fiance at the time when the accident happened was pregnant. She lost control of the car and drove herself and her child, who was on his way thereby, to death. It has really made its mark on my life and way of thinking. In the late nineties, I had problems with my back and had to seek other avenues to support myself. I finally decided to enroll at university and was admitted to the humanist line. I read philosophy, science, psychology, journalism and history, but philosophy and psychology is my major interest. I thrive today in the RUC aka Roskilde University just 25 km from Copenhagen. My job is to guide and teach, and it is a job with speed and that gives me a lot again. I have two collections of poems ready to be released, if I can find a publisher who will publish them. I have no children, it would obviously be my lot in life although I have tried, but luck never smiled at me that way. If you have any questions for me so I hope you just ask away all you want, I'll respond as soon as I have read the questions. With kindest regards from Jan Sorensen

    ” As your beauty unfolded ” , at its simplest is a Paean of praise ; one that really does require a second and indeed a third read through.Not that the subject matter nor narrative voice present any difficulty for the casual reader ,but rather that further,closer readings enhance the pleasure obtained from this work. The old time-honoured adage that , ” a picture paints a thousand words ” could metaphorically be turned on its head by this poem. For if it were a Picture then it would be on display at the Rijksmuseum or Louvre.
