Under the Flame Tree


the desert rose blossoms
like the heart of the beloved
in the first light of dawn
flooding my cells
and tissues with
the oxygen of passion

in a burst of energy and creativity
in the defining moment of awareness
i lick her divine nectar
with hungry lips
under the flame tree of desire
as the butterfly flaps its wings

the naked wind anoints
my body with
her magic fragrance
capturing the moment
caring
nurturing
and opening my mind forever
