Love Blossoms

from refugee
to citizen in fancy clothing…
waltzing like a hero

true love blossoms
like the spring flower of wonder
like the golden light of dawn

we wrestle (you and I)
with the gentle waves of passion
seizing the moment

you burn my lips
with the flame of love divine
purifying my soul

i jump over
the naked moon in the nick of time
sowing the seeds of destiny

you quiver
in ecstasy; kissing & yearning…
scarlet lips dripping with honey

two souls become one
in the defining moment; giving form to chaos
this precious day

i bathe in the splendour of your
inner beauty; thriving on the intoxicating
fragrance of your essence,

Wings of Passion

i shelter under
the glowing wings of passion
finding clarity…
reading the poetry of desire
in a room
furnished with autumn leaves

your infectious smile
runs through my veins
like the bubbly songs of spring
like the divine lyrics of the African haiku
warming my spirit to the core
this special moment

time brings forth
the creative impulse in us, the sacred rhythms
of being, the dance of love molecules
in the dazzling darkness of seduction
plucking the frisky moon…
carrying the fecund fragments of life within

you are
the precious gift of desire
the luminous petals of thought
the delicate flower of wonder
whose divine nectar nourishes
my hungry soul
