The Beautiful One


time marches on
like Nefertiti’s kitten
like the Beautiful One who comes to me
in the pale light of dawn
energizing my soul
as i survey the landscape of destiny
searching for
the magic blossom.

how wonderful is your
tender touch!
the sound of summer rain

it’s the season of lonely hearts
of fun poems
and endless possibilities

i watch as the heavenly waters of desire
crash
on my roof
like saints in crystal buckets
like metals without light
like little drops of passion
oozing dreams (much to my utmost delight):
the perfect balm
of choice
to get me
through
the restless years
