Open Embrace

Breaths like tangled flames
writhing ever deeper,
ever more helplessly
as heartbeats throb
uncontrollably and fade,
extinguished,
faces merging
into love’s open embrace.

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.
