If I Could #2

If I could leap miles and miles
    Whisper sweet nothings
In your ear
           I would.

If I could pluck stars
     From the sky, scatter
Then upon your bed
            I would.

If I could stitch these
      Words in a luminous
Shawl, untorn
            I would.

If I could barrel
       My kisses
Roll them to you
            I would.

If I could persuade
        The flamingoes
To dance unabashed
             I would.

If I could discard
         These longings
On the altar of touch
             I would.

If I could stand
          Proud and unbowed
The earth would thrill
             Afresh, it would.

If I could cherish thee
           As Spring
Serenades the trees
              I would.

If I could spell a charm
           That carried
You there to here
               I would.

If I could tell you
            The ways
You flit and flare
               I would.

If I could take your hand
            And float in a bubble
Of love, life would be grand
                It would.

Haiku


Silky-smooth breeze

Water pours in scented ease –

Spirits unsheathed.

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.

Revel 


When I see you again
let us not exchange words
but melt in a river of kisses
and revel like happy dogs.

Fortune

Can you hear
             The beauty
Silently
            Unfolding itself
Gracious 
            And godlike?

How lucky 
              We are 
To be alive
             Steeped in
Nature’s 
              Rich vintage
Loving like 
              Animals untamed
Ecstasy 
              Unvarnished. 
             
How lucky
              We are
To be a part
              Living
                    Thinking spirits
In the wide
              Unshackled skies
And give rein 
             To our heart’s desire. 

How lucky
             To utter a prayer
Clasped 
              In harmony
Where rivers
              Run deep.

How lucky
             To give and get
How lucky
             You and I met.

Greeting 

Come my sweet and cherish this beat,
Harmony’s a place where we’ll greet.
Come my flower and seek the calm,
Affection’s pulse flows palm to palm.
Come my dove, listen to the sea,
Ardent waves steeped in liberty.
Come my pearl, cradle the splendour,
This world, this heart, always tender.
Come my beacon, lighten the way,
Memories are made night and day.
Come my love and bury the past,
Bright horizons shall bloom and last.
Come my rose, from earth we unfold,
Mingled solitudes, life behold.

Gaze

Hours and hours
I gaze
Upon the
Wide oceanic blue.
But how
I would rather
Be feasting
On the kernel
Of you.
