Free Verse # 404 (tes yeux mon encrier)

Tes yeux
mon encrier,
ta peau
la vague où
voulant écrire
je me noie,
je me perds.

…et le jour tisse le souffle des moments transpercés par la lecture des livres de philosophie, poésie, et le cœur de l’amour.

Mystical companionship,
together reading and writing
philosophy and poetry,
tangled in the roots,
two trees growing symbiotic
from the white breast of love.

she came,
night overflowing
from her glass of wine,
in the light of the moon
her freckled skin dressed.

Tout ce que je possède,
quelque gouttes de sang dilués
dans l’eau du poème,
dans le noir de ses cheveux
un oiseau rouge arrondissant
le nid de mes rêves.

Free Verse # 403 (the fervency of my longing)

His poetry
veiled her eyes
and poured into her heart,
back arched and hurled deep
into the sky of orgasm
he fired the chakra of her belly,
the sun of life.

Radiance embodied
she then moved,
forming and transforming
everything around her,
a world reshaped
in the image of love.

~

Amid the folds
of her skin
his rough beard
pricking
as his lips,
famished,
move in circles
grazing her flower
and melting her
into a seething moan
bursting with the ink
of his poetry.

~

I want to kiss you
as on the first day
when spring flowered
in the bosom of life,
when birds learned to sing.

I am a cloud roaming
the meadows of your silence.

~

My poem…
the light of a candle
slowly gathering
in the silence of her heart.

~

If I cannot cry
let these words be my tears
pooling in your cup
the fervency of my longing

~

When I am down
I breathe in and out
as deeply and widely as I can,
centering myself
in the clarity of her light,
the intuition of eternity.

~

Even when old I wish to die in the youth of poetry.

Free Verse # 402 (tangled in the poem)

His poetry made her thaw,
now she flows
with the wildness of a river
in the ocean of his arms,
the radiance of her love soaking
all the corners of his life.

Through the folds of dawn
her silence comes,
a dream, a memory.

~

Let night between us be
A moving sea of poetry

His love
a wave swelling inside of her,
rushing through her limbs,
flowing, flowering,
laying her open
at the center of his altar,
a seething flame.

Whatever the inspiration
the poem is always her,
a star-seed in the sea
of her poetry.

Cocooned in his love,
the flame of the goddess
ablaze in her body,
her skin against his shore
shuddering with the fire
of a thousand thousand waves.

Tangled in the poem as in my lover’s hair.

Free Verse # 401 (her healing presence)

The ocean at night, a poem without a skin.

~

Sleepless in this longing
the desire that leaves me aching
for the dew of her silken thighs,
the ink of my poetry.

~

Weaving the candle’s light…
a shawl around her neck,
a dress to adorn
the curves of her nakedness.

~

Her womb
the ocean calling
all his rivers,
their flow
an electric surge
coursing her skin,
carrying the fires
of ancient altars
to the roots of her desire.
His swollen heat,
his tidal flow,
a surge in her belly
rippling concentric,
deeper than the ocean,
wider than the sky.

Solitude
to write, to live,
to breathe again,
to find myself open
to the light of the sky,
a poet wanderer,
a bird of passage.

~

Making love
and recording our voices
reading poetry,
Rumi, Neruda,
and the fervent silences
of our merging lips.

~

ضياء القمر
بحار تائه
في أسود شعرها

Her healing presence,
merging with him
she lights his fire
when it dwindles,
unafraid of his dark
she sees into him,
moves into him,
rooting his heart
in her boundless love.

Free Verse # 400 (only love)

Across lifetimes
we beckon each other,
two birds calling
from the leafy boughs
as the tree of time
grows and sprawls,
its roots rising
from eternity,
its branches spreading
in the sky of love.

~

His touch seethes the sun in her skin.

~

In his web of words
rocking gently
as the fire of his being
burns her body
to a slow gush,
her sultry water
his cup of wine,
the ink of his poetry.

~

Dawn…
in the white silence
our shared breath,
flowering

~

Her poem
rubs against his fullness,
sultry waves probing
the deeps of his ocean,
her flowers imbibing
the light in his words.

Dawn…
her body over mine,
her being in mine
shuddering
as the world is born again,
as from the ash of our poem
we are reborn.

The love of love
for which words
are messengers,
vessels carrying
the eternal flame.

His touch is not physical
yet it binds her;
his shadow
comes over her
and her ocean
is at the root
of his mountain,
waves unfolding
from her core.

~

Dusk settling…
in my heart the winged
dance of poetry

~

Love sighs and we scatter,
embers in the wind,
our bodies
the dust of ancient stars
catching fire once again,
burning in eternal light.

~

His words in her mouth
a succulent ferment
of a thousand poems
burning all at once.

~

In this transient world only love endures.

Free Verse # 399 (a chapel on the hill)

In a loud world
my heart
is a calm chapel
lying somewhere
on a green hill
where birds sing
and streams murmur
as your voice
inside of me wanders
like incense
like prayer
like the prophecy of poetry

~

Cracks
where moss grows,
the chipped lips
of the cup that once
flowed with our wine,
burned hot with our tea
as we made poetry.

~

Sometimes I touch you
and this touch
swells my heart
in rivers of poetry;
manhood?—
rooting myself deeper
in the sanctity
of this touch,
annihilated as your being
becomes my heart’s poetry,
swimming inside
your throbbing sea of light.

~

A fiery death,
a moth’s death,
in her kiss I feel
the boundless force of life.

~

Poetry has always been a way to polish your face in my heart, to bring its light to a greater shining in my soul, my life.

~

Dawn,
I wake up drowning
in a sea of your sighs,
your breath
a shawl curled
around the limbs
of the world,
its heat
rising from the earth,
raining from the sky.

~

Traversing
the wet ponds of night
her shewolf howl
arrives at dawn,
a tremor shaking
the sea of sleep,
a primal bite
in the flesh of poetry.

~

Her fragrance
an assassin’s knife
stealing through the night,
the fire of its steel
burning against my neck,
blazing the dark forest
of desire and poetry.

~

Her skin absorbs his words
like water the light
as she fills with the glow
of his states of mind,
the wine of his poetry.

Free Verse # 398 (axis mundi)

His roving hands
an ocean sinking
to the deeps of her skin,
shaking from her womb
the stars of the night,
the poets’ dreams.

~

I saw you
before my eyes could see;
and now when I write
I follow in the trail
of that sacred knowing,
that ancient memory.

~

The syllables
of every written poem…
crimson sighs melting
in the light of your eyes

~

Axis mundi…
the ray of light
turning in her eyes

~

What is the poem?
Something that teaches the man
how to touch the woman;
something that teaches the woman
how to respond
from the ocean of her heart.
What is the poem?
It is the space
between the man and woman
where their longings merge
to annihilate past and future
on the altar of the present,
where their beings incubate
the desire to rise
beyond themselves
and in their hearts embody
the expanse of their sky.
