Word Matters

two words meet
on the blank pages of time
apple blossoms

you are the word that runs through my veins
the magic flower of reason
whispering the divine secrets of life in my ears

i devour the word like the hungry lion
of the realm
energizing my soul in the fecund light of day

you are the fragrance of desire
the hidden
power of the word within

i watch as your word flickers like the star
on the pages
of life charged with love particles

you are the powerful word of words in the deep
recesses of the brain
the perfect gift of the mind that made me
