Water pours in scented ease –
In the light of your smile
I cross the divide
In the scent of your grace
I walk in bliss
In the glow of your flow
I conquer desire
In the beat of your heart
I float in devotion
In the brush of your lips
I travel through pain
In the snug of your touch
I discard the crutch
In the soul of your mind
I dive, dive, dive.
You are the vine that never withers.
Bathing with you in a waterfall of light.
Together on a peak,
Wonders never cease.
You are the freshness of a forest glade,
You are the lightness lighting the dawn.
Floating in the clutch of your embrace.
Knowing you are mine is what connects me to the divine.
Do not despair
What is to come
Love shall bear.
The sadness won’t last,
There are days to fill.
Strengthened in love’s flow,
The touch and the thrill.
You teach me the way of enchantment. For this, my gratitude is infinite.
Forgive me if I make some notes – I need to make sense of your glittering speech.
You fall into my palm like a gift from nature.
I love the way you smile – it’s a beacon that glows for miles and miles.
It’s all in the give and take
The devotion we create;
It’s all in the little things,
Wherein gratitude sings.
You are the sun that never sets
You are the moon that always glows
You are the wind that sings and sings
You are the earth kissed with joy.
There is nothing that can extinguish the light you emit.
There you are
Here I am
Hand to hand.
How can I express my affection?
With words, tears, gestures –
I want to take you to a place
Where the air casts
A shimmering spell,
Music hums with
And intimacy flowers
In the shedding of words.
Sweeter than all the flowers in the world is inhaling the fragrance of you.
Let’s make music with our bodies.
Whatever you crave, I will give.
Such sprightly bedfellows: connection and affection.
How can I succumb to fear as long as you appear?
Fresh horizons on the rise;
It’s never too late to inscribe on our hearts what we have hitherto suppressed.
Waking with you
The world aglow
What life-affirming radiance you emit!
I wonder if you think of me when I think of you, and, if you do, what wonders swim into view.
Your name is a charm I wear in my heart.
Rest awhile and simply smile.
Enthralled by the infectious vivacity you exude.
I don’t think of you much – except on days ending with “y”.
Can we resist the irresistible sweetness of desire?
Let’s not descend into dust before we have expressed what it is we must.
If you were a map, I would never stop reading you.
Did I ever mention how you fill me with ecstasy?
When I can’t see you, what keeps me eager is your twinkling luminescence.
If I could bottle you, my happiness would be infinite.
I am all yours
True love hath no ending; it is a channel eternally replenished by the cleansing dew of amity and desire.
Your voice is an instrument that heartens my soul.
When all is said and done, I remain grateful for love lost and won.
Words flow heart to heart,
Softly-sprung, wonders start.
All that concerns me is your happiness.
Are you singing the same song as me?
Oh to be with you – naked, unadorned – living in joyful simplicity.
What is there to talk about except everything?
Between you and me
For what feels
Like an age
All my thoughts
Like dancing stars
In a burning rage.
In fiendish fright
I often dream
Of simply being
The two of us
Years have passed
Swallowed in reverie
A vision hums
Wedded to brightness
Drunk in lovers’ light.
We can only live in the moment
Forget past sorrows, dismiss ancient
Pains, look to tomorrow, smile.
Rise, dance, kiss your lover,
Create beauty, follow the sun.
Make love, sigh, revel in the wonder
Of it all. Now is now is now is now.
The past is a land of closed borders
Time to follow our natural orders.
The impulse burns bright, why crouch?
Stand tall, savour the music, the world
Alive with rich possibility, spinning,
A globe of gladness waiting to be caught.
We can only live in the moment,
For death’s date is coiled like a snake.
The strike can arrive anytime, unexpected,
Expected, a sudden surprise, a lingering
Event. So live the life you want, let your
Senses unfurl, a glorious canvas absorbing
New memories, the tenderness of touch, Secrets unlocked. Dance through the sorrow,
Unshed your baggage, travel light, walk
Onwards into a future, blossoming,
