Presence

With you by my side,
All of time recedes; 
Like an ebbing sea
Sucked free of history.

With you, the road is clear –
Rivers glisten in the sun,
Peaks offer glimpses of joy,
Living is the pulsing ploy.

With you, zesty spirit,
Flowers tingle with freshness;
Touch springs in the air,
From here to everywhere.

We Only Have The One Life

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,
So no need to drown and frown;
Joy is there to be savoured
If wanting looks up not down.

Healing 

I wake with a start
Darkness a blade
Cutting the heart.

In the thick of night
Comes a touch
A palm of light.

The sea knows no pain
What we grieve
It is in vain.

I hear a song
Weathered by years
A chorus,  a throng.

Arriving together
Naked as newborns
Kindling the heather.

Torn. Worn. Reborn.

Questions

Will you come dance with me?
Will you embrace this jamboree?
Will you revel in wholesome fun?
Will you dance beneath the sun?
Will you dress in dark leather?
Will you be light as a feather?
Will you leap on a mountain?
Will you flow like a fountain?
Will you tear off your mask?
Will you ride through the dark?
Will you tremble into this?
Will you give a fragrant kiss?
Will you?

L’amour 

Love is the only thing one should live for.
Love is the only thing one should consider.
Love is the pill that soothes ancient sorrows.
Love is a wave that carries us to new worlds.
Love is warmth for the jaded soul.
Love is a cloak to be worn in all seasons.
Love is light,  illuminating the darkness.
Love is touch, linking heart to heart.
Love is an ocean, wherein happiness may flow.
Love is the sun, the moon, the wind, the stars.
Love is a force composed of parts.

I turn off

I turn off the light
Slip into the dark
Torn and forlorn
Searching the past.

Your hand arrives
Holding me tight
Soft as feathers
Flensing the fright.

Dawn approaches
Over the hill
Touch is a flame
A future to fill.

Aroma

​The silent hours

Love comes
Tumbling in
I stay transfixed
By the scent
That throbs within.
