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
