The Villa of Promise


sensing the new dawn
i rise early
like the wandering sun
in the spaces between
deprivation and existence
feeling your presence
i find myself
in the great villa of promise
on the frontier of reason
sipping a nice
cup of you
with hungry lips
as love blossoms in earnest
putting a smile on my face
i bask in the naked beauty of your sweetness
dreaming
of the living poetry
of the morning light
clothed in love
i open up
like the autumn rose in triumph
learning to fly
i blend and embrace
the new dawn
as the earth moves
nourishing my soul
in the divine
flame
of your essence
