There Is A Light

There is a light that never wavers.
You have to hold on to it.
No matter the time, day or night,
You have to nurture it.
There is a hope that always sings.
You have to yield to it.
Hanging on trees, lifted by breath,
You have to touch it.
There is a smile that conquers sadness.
You have to caress it.
When the shadow prowls,
You have to fashion it.
There is a love that keeps you buoyant.
You have to melt into it.
Before the waves drag you down,
You have to cherish it.
There is a light that tells of wonder,
You have to dance with it.

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.

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.

That Day

That day we talked and laughed
and felt as humans do, the magic alive, a glorious afternoon on a street
filled with gladness where voices wed
in unison and the gods dealt liberally with brightness and brio, memories sprung in the August sun, spun afresh on the altar of affection. My words tumbling like confetti onto your beckoning palms. Sliding into night,
aromas danced in a wholesome blend and I knelt in awe at your poise and unchained elegance. Promises linger
in the meeting of tongues, the sky ablaze with whispering fragments, wounds rendered whole, the welcoming arms, a holy melt.

Living

Desire for life
Is a wave
That ebbs and flows
On the shoreline
Of our searching minds.

Desire for sex
Is the rain
That floods and runs
On the map
Of our pulsing days.

Desire for peace
Is a wind
That gleams and streams
On the hills
Of our risen needs.

Desire for love
Is a sun
That flares and bursts
On the banks
Of our fragile hearts.

Desire for life
Desire for sex
Desire for peace
Desire for love

Reside in desire.

L’Amour

Love is the only thing one should live for.
Love is the only thing one should consider.
Love is the herb that soothes ancient sorrows.
Love is a wave that carries us to new worlds.
Love is warmth for the jaded soul.
Love is a hat to be worn in all seasons.
Love is light illuminating the darkness.
Love is fire, linking heart to heart.
Love is an ocean in which happiness swims.
Love is the sun, the moon, the wind, the stars.
Love is time dissolved in laughter.
Love is touch healing old scars.
Love is a smile greeting a smile.
Love is a charm, the way to stay calm.
Love is fragrant, freshened by passion.
Love is care, bathed in devotion.
Love travels far across seas and lands.

Wherever I Go

Wherever I go

I carry you

A smile of light

A voice of warmth

A lake of peace.

Wherever I go

I carry you

How easily

The darkness

Is torn.

Wherever I go

I carry you

A totem of mirth

A bowl of grace

A hand of hope.

Wherever I go

I carry you

The song goes on.
