My love

My love



I am still in awe

of the deep delight that

rises in your eyes

like a constellation surfaces

from the thick flesh of dark night

and sings to me – ethereal,

images pounding the back of my mind,

breaking through the wet cemented barrier,

sure to drown me, incorporate me into its own.


You are magic, a wilderness

tempered with spiritual intelligence where

your genius sits on a throne, high above the

primal ground, directing each disruption into

an exuberant harmony, changing the dull light

of chaos into a living ceremony, pulsing

and sensually tearing the seams

– heightened evolution –


my love,

my truest friendship, your power is beautiful.

It never wanes or falters. I love you still

like at the beginning

when we found a field and twirled

in joyful abandon, knowing what we found

and what was to come. It is coming

again, a future without waste or holding back.


Your rich glory raging like

a storm-tossed sea.

You are tied to the resting point.

You are tied to the gravity

of the moon. You spread your arms.

I watch you receive, and then

I will watch what enfolds.
