Free Verse # 97

You bloom in me as stars
blossom in the night sky –
in silence,
rising from the great unknown
raining awe from the face of darkness.

~

Kindness is a well of infinite depth.
Touch that, and you are home.

~

Blessed be the love that perturbs our sleep,
waking us breathless in the middle of the night.

~

O Love, offer me your forehead so I could kiss it.
Offer me your hands and feet as well.
Offer me your mouth, that crimson rose of spring,
that flowing fount of wine.

~

In the chests of lovers a fire burns.
With each breath they exhale stars,
shivering the world to madness,
painting it to life.

~

If the world lives
it is because in it lovers exist.
The world is a beat pulsating
from the open chests of lovers,
churning with their invisible wine.
