Free Verse # 142 (be my wine)

Be my wine…
The cradle of my passion…

~

In your presence
I am a white lotus
embracing the dawn sky,
open to your silence
as it flows through my heart.

~

Our simple touch is charged
with all the blossoms of the world…

~

In the silence of the night
our hearts awaken
and pulsing deep
pour their wine
in rivers flowing
through the infinite stars

~

What is love if not this:
to be known
to the fullness of one’s heart
and from there to overflow
like a stream in the  dawn sky.

~

My touch
lapped around your neck
like dawn’s warm breath,
and your face blossomed,
a white flower
greeting the rising sun.

~

I plant love
in endless kisses
in the palms of your hands.
You then raise them
and lo!
the sky pales,
dawn breaks.

~

There’s a kiss
that’s been written
in my heart.
It will unfurl only
for you.

~

Tender,
like the silent wave of dawn,
let my heart carry you
onto the shore
where our souls and bodies
shall merge and tangle…
…forever one.

~

In the vastness of the night
I whisper to the silence of your absence
and my heart pulses with a beat
older than the stars

~

I am a forest of stars
waiting for your naked feet
to press over my grass,
for your warm breath
to enliven my bosom,
make glow my heart…

~

Harden, O heart,
and let your froth scatter
on the night’s shores
as endless waves of stars.

~

Like a predator’s teeth,
the farther I move from you
the deeper you sink…

~

…and my arms long to cradle you
like the rosy lips of dawn.

~

With my pure tears
let me wash your feet;
with my heart’s dawn
let me scent your hair;
and with my burning lips
let me set your body
aflame with a kiss.

~

Would that I were a crystalline stream
coursing amid your white hills and curves
as amid lush gardens of flowers and milk.

~

Like the sun itself,
like the whole world,
each dawn our love is born anew.
