Free Verse # 148 (your eyes)

Every day when I wake
I happen upon your lips
As upon a white, tender flower
Eager to suckle
The warm ecstasy of dawn.

~

The dimples down your back
I baptise as my sun and moon
As above them my poetry spreads
In endless lines of tender ecstasy.

Your eyes,
From their distance,
Colour my night
With the hues of your soul,
The passion of your light.

Labyrinth of desire,
the shade of your eyes
falling over nocturnal skies,
rearranging stars and moans
into a crazed dance
of inescapable fire.

In the middle of the night
your whisper, like a butterfly,
strokes against my cheek,
and my heart shivers yearning
to be embraced by your heat.

its light and shadow dancing on your face,
painting the warmest verses of a home
from your womb, unfolding.

it would blossom in your eyes.

The rivers of your passion
run through my heart,
intimating an ocean
your breath alone imparts.

a poem of infinite warmth
unfurling through your body,
unlocking the curls
of your nocturnal hair,
and filling my cup
with the rouge of your cheeks.

I break my heart
and scatter its wine
over the sanctity of your hills,
poems unfurling like dark petals,
soaking through your blood.

Flicking my tongue along the curves
of your honey-dipped words
a flame in my throat burns
and I become a dragon
breathing fire for poetry

let me sip from your lips
the poetry of love

your breath breezes through my ribs,
stroking to a tender ecstasy
the sea of my flowers.

Drunk on your caresses
you gently tilt my head
and I sigh all my essence
into your luminous heart

In the silence of the heart
a dawn is constantly breaking,
flowers suckling at the luminous sky,
and lovers, entangled, spreading ecstasy.

Uplifted

I gaze in your eyes
and upon my face I feel
the salty drizzle of the waves,
in my soul their rhythm,
now roaring, now smooth,
carrying me into you.

~

Unknown Artist, Dawn
Unknown Artist, Dawn

Like a sea of stars
I ripple through your body,
each wave upon your lips
bursting like a dark fig,
a ripe moan melting
into a warm prayer
arching your back
and from your womb rising,
a birdsong welcoming the dawn.

I feel your scent
in the air and I know,
the sea is calling me…

your dawn entered my heart…

Yours to squander,
yours to pour.
In your palms
I am a river of stars
thirsty to quench
the lips of night,
to burn in his womb and soul.

Like dawn’s breath on your lips
I am a gentle whisper
awakening all flowers.

Like lightning in your stormy eyes
I am a flash of light
sinking like white roots
in the dark abyss of life.

Free Verse # 144 (a pulse in your heartbeat)

Blossoming in the silence of your heart
I am a flower which scent is your art

Solitary as a star
in the womb of the sky,
unreachable,
yet overflowing with light.

Hidden,
in a world of their own,
yet the waves of their love
embrace one and all.

In the scent of the flower,
in the sigh of the leaf,
in the silence of the night,
in the birdsong of dawn ~
your voice was ever calling me.

Your butterfly-kiss
melts into my neck
like a firefly,
entering my bloodstream,
enlivening my heart
to a pouring divine.

Let your voice fall
into the vessel of my heart,
like dawn’s breath
overflowing with light,
like twilight’s whisper
an infinitely warm wine.

Not when the sun rises or sets
does my day begin and end.
Daybreak and sunset
are the motions of your face
deep within my soul.

In your palms I burn softly
like a tender flower
aching to kiss your lips,
the lips of dawn.

~

All night long
my longing dews unheard,
pure drops covering the earth
hoping that, at dawn,
you walk out,
and I get to kiss your naked feet.

~

Let us disappear under the cloak of stars
where no one knows what heaves
between the shores of our hearts.

~

Let my pen trail along your skin
like a comet across the nightsky,
its fiery nectar burning through your skin
then vanishing deep inside.

~

Tangled in the ribbons of my passion
as in a fisherman’s net;
with each quiver and move
the binding grows tighter
burning skin and breath.

~

O beloved,
are these coals burning
on the curves of your lips?
For your each kiss sears my skin
into my blood and bone
wielding me as your sun and torch.

~

Sinking into the silence of the night
you’ll find me,
a pulse in your heartbeat,
a quiver in your breath.

I never drank,
the river of your lips.

Let my lips
purge your heart
of its tears
as the rising sun
soaks into her
all the weeping stars.

Your words fall softly
like piano notes
into the pond of my soul
rippling its starry waters
into a white ecstasy

I am a fountain of desire
and I spring from endless depths…

After a long night
I hunger to fill you
as the sun fills the sky

You send your love with a travelling star,
she whispers in my ear, one word,
and I overflow with light.

Like the flute’s music,
like a jasmine laden breeze
your breath passes through my chest.
