What This Is

This is longing steeped in affection.
This is a current that flows with emotion.
This is a tense that transcends time.
This is a beat from head to feet.
This is real, not a rehearsal.
This is now. This is forever.

I Woke Up

I woke up with an urge this morning
to tell you what you already know –
while madness may afflict the planet
and troubles afflict the weary soul
my love for you never dissipates,
every day it is born awake.
Like a bird in flight, soaring free,
your scented light surges through me.

There Is Nowhere

There is nowhere I’d rather be
than here, drinking in the view,
meditating on what’s new.

Well actually that is a lie –
I’d rather be somewhere else,
relishing the youness of you.

Walk With Me #2

Walk with me
In sunshine and in rain
Walk with me
Through the pain.

Walk with me
Across the fields
Walk with me
Where darkness yields.

Walk with me
Over the hills
Walk with me
To the silent thrills.

Walk with me
To the sultry sea
Walk with me
Naked and carefree.

Walk with me
Avenues unwind
Walk with me
Unclothe your mind.

Walk with me
Beyond the page
Walk with me
Love and engage.

Walk with me
Peel your eyes
Walk with me
Catch a surprise.

Walk with me
On this earth
Walk with me
Give birth to mirth.

Walk with me
From beach to beach
Walk with me
The stars we’ll reach.

Walk with me
Where passion calls
Walk with me
To the roaring falls.

Walk with me
Let wounds repair
Walk with me
Pleasures share.

Walk with me
Immersed in this
Walk with me
Touch and kiss

Walk with me
Lighten your load

Walk with me
On the open road

Walk with me
Caress the flow
Walk with me
Memories glow.

Walk with me
Feed the fire
Walk with me
Unbind desire.

Walk with me
Day and night
Walk with me
Unveil your light

Walk with me
Into the dawn
Walk with me
Hope is reborn.

Give and Take

Let’s dance

and not leave

anything

to chance.

Let’s partake

and savour

the beauty

we create.

Let’s praise

the sacred

and the secular

gaze.

Let’s eye

one another

and never say

goodbye.

Let’s spread

a kind of magic

when we lay

our weary heads.

Let’s write

with our tongues

and welcome

lovers’ light.

Let’s feel

as we blend

on the path

that stars reveal.

Let’s vow

to wonder

by living

in the now.

Let’s give

and take,

the chord proclaims:

LIVE.

You Fall On Me

You fall on me with great tenderness,
bending in light, a willowy presence.

You fall on me with natural intent,
a gift of love that signals content.

You fall on me, in rapture and thought,
a river of joy, liberty sought.

You fall on me day and night,
soft as mist, heavenly sight.

You fall on me when silence arrives,
this oasis in which we thrive.

You fall on me in a rising tide,
spelling a chant leavened with sighs.

You fall on me like a dream –
generous as the sun,
radiance your theme.

Early Morning

Early morning.
The sun not yet risen,
schemes itching to wink
on the cusp of expectation.
A dog barks with happy swagger,
windows catch the scented dawn
and you swim into my life –
like a mermaid from the depths,
salted, exalted, reborn.
