Love Letters: Part 2


I shall always stay awake for you.

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.

Morning
Afternoon
Evening
Night
Every hour
Enchanted
Alight.

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
Amour flows
Hand to hand.

How can I express my affection?
With words, tears, gestures –
Blissful connection.

I want to take you to a place
Where the air casts
A shimmering spell,
Music hums with
Limpid abandon,
And intimacy flowers
In the shedding of words.

Falling
         Falling
                 Falling.

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?

Walking together,
Fresh horizons on the rise;
Sun-kissed,
             Vows stressed,
Blessed.

Surprised
            Tenderised
                         Mesmerised.

It’s never too late to inscribe on our hearts what we have hitherto suppressed.

Waking with you
The world aglow 
Expectant delight.

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
For now
And evermore.

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
Marvels bloom
And sparkle…

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.

Forever

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,
Fresh heights.

Homage

What is your hair?
A river of peace
A tower of silk
A path of wonder
A stream of stars.

What are your eyes?
Orbs of delight
Jewels of joy
Windows of hope
A cradle of light.

What is your body?
A map of splendour
A text to be read
A mountain of dew
An ocean of fire.

What is your voice?
A song of laughter
A shower of pearls
An arrow of passion
A channel of love.

What is your touch?
A fount of energy
A canopy of comfort
A blaze of words
A glint of mint.

Vignette

Two spirits, snapped in time.
Laughter flowing; currents alive.
Souls rhyming with sweet accord.
Sorrows unlived, joy to be caught.
Always joy to be caught.

Two bodies breathing fire;
Leaning together,
Drawn by a hungry force.
Awakened to gratitude,
The flush of hopefulness.

Two minds in unison,
Discoursing with wild abandon.
Hours unable to wither
This picture of contentment;
A canvas of light.

Like A Rock

Like a rock is this love,
Washed daily
By a sea of desire,
Our dreams mingled
In a riotous foam.

I gaze without shame
At your naked form,
Rising clear
Onto the sandy shore.

And I pinch myself
Grateful that you came,
A diving spirit,
Glistening and golden,
Giving with grace
Modesty untamed.

Ecstasy

Catch this kiss as it flies,
truth melted in surprise;
Lifted by laughter’s wings,
ecstasy always sings.

Held by a soft embrace,
sighs fold in tender grace;
What flickers through the night
is you and your luscious light.

Day comes with eager feet,
a landscape in which to greet –
displacing heavy air,
your form gleams everywhere.
