My Neighbour's Precious Hand

i take my
neighbor’s precious hand; feeling
the divine symmetry
of motion, the gentle flash of love
particles contained

the laughing
waves of passion reveal the new
galaxies of desire

she glows
into my life like a poem
energizing my
soul; illuminating the inner
core of my being

we build a new Eden
on the scarlet wings of reason
this sweetest night

now, I pluck the
divine petals of wonder with glee
rousing the autumn rose
