The Soothing Voice of Passion

your soothing voice
fills the innermost depths of my
heart with joyful thoughts -
each word a clean slice of heaven
on a platter; the shining pearls
of wisdom contained

like the sweetest bird
of Oz after the winter solstice,
your inner voice creates the perfect
mood; exploring the miracles of life…
nurturing the fragile soul under
the trembling light

yours is the passionate voice of reason
flavoured with the elixir of joy…
the golden drops of honey plucked
from your sculptured lips
whose luscious blossom is the
lasting flower of the heart

it’s the voice of hope
painted with your kisses; a tonic
of delight in a mansion
of many dreaming rooms - a natural
mix of life, light, and desire

and now, I‘ve tasted
the eternal beauty of your divine
essence and enjoyed
its sweet and charming splendour…
scaling the symphonic heights of passion
