Free Verse # 47

Pressing into each other,
their bodies,
a banquet of hot flowers
bursting wet with rain.

~

Dawn. You, a kiss of water
washing upon my face,
shivering into my body
love’s silent wakefulness.
Open in your grace.

~

The goblet of your lips set upon my mouth,
a spring which water fills the ocean of my life.

~

A dream heaved me upon the shore of heaven.
A drop of honey, earthward falling.
Catch me with your mouth,
let me burn your being.

~

Without your kiss
pouring fire into my chest,
my breath,
a winterwind blowing
over solitary fields.

~

Knocking on love’s door
with a heart hollowed by waiting,
emptied into the vastness
of a star-filled sky.

~

Love’s merciless dance,
claws of fire skin-deep sinking,
tearing flesh from flesh,
consumed in the furnace of Heart.

~

Red with the softness of embrace
dawn rises and from my eye
a burning tear flutters to meet his face,
weeping as she writes
love’s sweetest poetry.

~

With lips of thorn you graze my heart, oh Love,
a farmer’s hands passionately tilling soil,
coursing water, scattering seeds,
ever faithfully waiting.

~

Every thorn ever handed to me by life I plunged,
gratefully, into the soil of my heart,
then waited, patiently, the coming of spring.

~

Come into my world,
a violent wind breaking all dead branches.
Come into my heart,
pure dew stirring all longings.

~

The deepest pain is felt by the strongest hearts.
Only the widest skies can embrace
love’s oceans of tears,
and burn them into stars.

~

Roaming he fields of night,
plucking stars like wild berries
from each other’s mouths,
lovefilled, howling at the moon.

~

Poetry on the face of dawn,
whispers from the Beloved’s garden,
and in my heart your heart,
beating…

~

The sun and moon
upon my lips merge,
a kiss between your eyes.

Anathema – Dreaming Light

Suddenly… life has new meaning
Suddenly… feeling is being
Suddenly… I don’t have to be afraid
Suddenly… All falls into place

And you shine inside
And love stills my mind like the sunrise
Dreaming light of the sunrise

And you shine inside
And love stills my mind like the sunrise
Dreaming light of the sunrise
Dreaming light and …

I feel you but I don’t really know you
I dreamed of you from the moment I saw you
And I’ve seen the sunrise in your eyes
The sky… the sea… the light

So live your dream beneath the northern horizon
Be at peace, set your heart in flight again
For the light is truth…
The light is you…

Free Verse # 44

In the touch of our fingertips worlds of memory collide,
Birthing in us a longing older than the stars.

~

Head on pillow and the ether fills with dreams,
Each a burning star in the universe of your eyes, turning.

~

Night, with hands of stars she squeezes at our heart,
squeezes a bitter sweet wine
that drips onto the nocturnal sky
where our dreams with burning feet swirl and write.

A Love Song

A man in love sang out to his Beloved, the Sun:
light of my eyes,
breath of my breath,
beat of my heart,
everywhere I look I see you
a stream bursting into colour,
in everything I touch I feel you
a breath exhaled into my soul
enlivening the beats
of a heart that broke out
from the cage of ribs –
You, life within my life
from the inside bursting,
like a spring You bloom
from all the hidden pores,
You, a voice calling from behind
every small cleft and large horizon
to spread my wings and fly,
after You, forever bound
by a hidden string entwining
our hearts to the beat of One,
after You, two birds, wing to wing,
fading behind the clouds
to enter the garden of their love.
