Free Verse # 226 (one with the sky)

In the desert of myself
I linger, imprisoned,
My passionate breath
In supplication rising
For a drop of your water
To set me free.

~

Like a seed in the earth dies to become something new, in you I perish and am born into light.

~

She rises through my flesh like the spring through the skin of the earth. My darkness into light she redeems with her touch.

~

Ancient as the stars
My passion for you burns,
Ever more fervently sighing
Your name from each mouth.

~

Your whispers
through my soul,
birds in cloudless skies.

~

I kiss her as though I were the sun sinking in the moon.

~

I can feel her wind blowing through my soul
Eternity in a touch making me whole

~

She is the feast and he is famished, always, ever more, famished for her flesh.

~

He touched her
and a sun
through his finger passed
to burn in her womb

~

To breathe dawn from her lips, the sacred fragrance of silence.

~

I placed my ear on her belly to hear heaven sing, the ocean laugh and flow.

~

Closer and closer
our merging lips become
one with the sky

~

Alone with the night
and her voice
a jasmine scented whisper
caressing my eyes,
sighing against my lips
her ineffable name.

~

Like water receives the light
your breath through my being seeps
imbuing me with your color,
etching your scent into my throbbing heart.

~

Overwhelming—the silent burn of your words in my heart; in my veins, the throb of your pulse.

~

Your breath has surrounded me and entered my heart; wherever I am, I am in you; and every facet of the world reflects your divine face.

~

O my heart, keep your eyes set on the face of love.

~

I have been made a prisoner
by the scent of your skin and hair,
the curve of your chin and lips,
the pool in your eyes,
yet my very slavery
has set me free.
