Journey

Walking this path

Alone save for the

Owl’s song piercing

The dark quilt

And the stars glinting

Like jewels.

I remember your

Kind touch

Folding me in warmth

Coldness submerged

By abundant

Tenderness

Fruit ripening

My life.

The journey

We made

Pealing with love

Subdues

The shade

Boundless light

Beckons me

On and on.

Nestled

Reading over and over

Letters jump

Before my eyes.

Seduced by a sea

Of metaphors

Sleep’s soft tide

Beckons.

I dive without fear

Happy to be nestled

In a realm of

Redolent wonder.

Unexpectedly

Out of the shadows

You waltzed, unexpectedly

Bright blazing flame

Scorching old sorrows.

I ate your words

With humility,

Pressing them

Close to my heart.

While dawn breaks

The thinly-veiled skin

Of blanched dreams

And sweeps sleep away,

Tasting this moment

A gift to cherish.

Crossing The Bridge

Reaching you

Is like

Crossing a bridge

Your body made

Of durable

Wood

Hardened by love

Tempered by

Gentleness.

Touching you

Is like

Crossing a bridge

Seeing the shapes

Words make

Emboldened

By fiery

Kisses.

Entering you

Is like

Crossing a bridge

Your breasts singing

Smooth as rocks

Washed by water

Our breaths

Mingled in

One spice.

Loving is

A tender bridge

Arching the space

Of solitary

Living.
