Against the Odds

against the odds
you deliver me from the winter’s chill
in the spaces between
alienation and belonging
what if
you bring the divine light
into my life?
will the heart sing like never before?
will the springtime come with a vengeance
and flowering
like Venus on heat
like hope in the galaxy of wonder
like the hidden treasure of desire
feeding my passion
and what if
my heart beats for you as the earth moves
in the heat of the moment?
will you be
my wondrous flower of choice
the teddy bear of my dreams?

Hungry Soul

what if
i feed the hungry soul
with the
of your love and beauty?
will your secret river of honey
nourish my
tender ribs
soothing my
painful memories?
what if
a flash of your smile
lit up
the night?
will you feed my longing
with the endless
glow of emotion
under the full moon?

Flower Moon

what if
i taste your divine nectar
over the
flower moon
what if
i plant the seeds of love
on the fertile crescent
of your soul
my sweetest one
will love
happiness grow
like the wildfire in the finest
moment of desire?
will you sing and dance
a soul possessed?
what if
i feel the warmth
of your cheek
will you light my fire?

Lustful Angels

what if
i drink a wonderful cup
of you
in the first light of dawn?
will the
lustful angels come
what if
the love particles sing
like the
gentle wind
over the crescent moon?
will they
the virgin star?
