Last Night

Last night
            I spoke to the moon
Declared my love
             She said
“Come back
            Tomorrow afternoon.”

Today
            I went to the moon
And sang of
            What I had
Told before.

She said,
             With a wide
And gracious smile
            “Tell her
                      Evermore.”

Where I Go

A place I go to
Every year
Ablaze and humming
Season to season
A riot of serenity. 

Just thinking
About it
Stirs the heart
Fires the bones
Cleanses the mind. 

What better place
For being
For drinking 
For watching
For kissing
For loving?

There is no
Traffic of clutter
Here – rather
The hushed calm
Of earth’s pleasing 
Charms. 

A place I want
To show you. 
A place awash 
In ardent colour. 

We all need these places
We all need these places.

Enchanted

Rapt in wonder,
I hang
         Upon
Your every word.

Starlit,
         Blessed,
Modest charms
                     Ablaze.

Limpid syllables
You utter,
An ardent voice
In whose
             Whetted
Tenderness

I humbly succumb.

In The End

In the end
This I came
To understand –

You were nothing
More than
              Footprints
In the sand.

Fullness

Drinking deep
Succulence untethered –
Renewed plenitude

We Only Have The One Life #2


We only have the one life,
Why the fever and the fret?
When our duty is to love
And kiss before sorrows set.

We only have the one life
To touch and explore and dream;
Body revealed, mind-lamps lit,
Tanned in the unceasing gleam.

We only have the one life
To get naked in the sun,
Shorn of gaudy dress,
Hardened shells undone.

We only have the one life
To breathe and think and fuck;
Goodness within our grasp,
Riches won, wonderstruck.

We only have the one life,
So no need to drown and frown;
Joy is there to be savoured,
If wanting looks up not down.

Even Though

Even though
              I haven’t
Seen you
              For what feels
Like an age
              All my thoughts
They fly
               Like dancing stars
In a burning rage.

Even though
                Distance cleaves
In fiendish fright
                I often dream
Of simply being
                The two of us
Walking earthstruck
                Threaded by
Sunlight.

Even though
                 Years have passed
Swallowed in reverie
                  A vision hums
Wedded to brightness
                  Blessed
                                Blessed
                                            Blessed
Drunk in lovers’ light.
