“and the greatest of these is love”

 

with time we have become

in/ti/mate

the lovers’ quarrels

necessary steps

faux pas

mis/take/s

misread intentions

unspoken love

too shy to reveal

all

 

we learned we cannot read

each other’s minds

 

all the while

fearful of faulty connections

sexy repartee

(with more than one)

jealousy of lovers

sparring, not understanding

this dance of love

 

we are at a crossroad

 

we’ve talked

and sang

and danced

and lived a life

of joy and light

in/ter/linked with pain

and hurt

and anger

 

we live in faith

we walk in hope

but our legacy

what is pre-ordained

will forever be

our love

(Re)Use

 

I want to use you

to move

to grow

to flow

into a life

I’ve never lived

 

I want to hold you close

inside a heart

revived alive

no longer afraid

to take

a chance

on living/loving again

 

I want to remember

the good

the certainty

that life

and love

can come

from unexpected places

 

don’t worry my love

I will write this out

over and over again

 

and then

I will

let

you

go

Follow Your Bliss

 

flaming amber mane

flying over banisters, ledges,

stairs you climb in your haste to kiss me

 

I smile

eager for a nuzzle

books lined up in doorways

“this shop is mine!” I cry

“you can’t fly, you silly ninny!”

I giggle as your chocolate eyes look solemnly into mine

 

I stroke your horse’s head

you shake your body, stand your ground and neigh

 

only in my dreams

do I make books,

and passionate horses fly

 

but why, dear girl,

do you deny flight light?

surely you must know

limitations exist

only in the confines of your mind

Longing

Longing

 

the wind

a delicate caress kissed her skin

she closed her eyes

sighed

overwhelmed with longing

and heard a swallow sing

his purpose

clear

two golden butterflies danced

like lovers

unaware

a storm’s brewing she mused

soon nature’s drops

will mingle with her tears

A Love Song

“By night on my bed I sought him whom my soul loveth: I sought him, but I found him not…” Song of Solomon 3:1

 

her head upon her pillow

she reaches

her fingers touch

the silky sheets

the empty space

the sacred place

inside of her

unoccupied

waiting for him

 

she whispers

my beloved is mine, and I am his

come to me, mi amor

I burn for you

I give you my body

make love to my soul

A Poem… Love/Africa/Tears

 

5

Tears

 

palms sway softly

breezes whisper words I know have come

from you

 

dust swirls

sand stings alert eyes

grit mixes with tears

for a pain we cannot fix

and lives we may not save

 

an African blood moon rises

your heart turns to me

you feel my breath upon dry lips

a caress, a love word

 

somewhere beyond deserts—beyond droughts

and babies that cry without tears—the soil

is lush

 

a woman waits

and she is filled

with love

for you
