Which way does it blow?
Can the wind push the sails of fate
Hard and Fast
Crashing the sirens at my feet?
They wither in my presence.
For breath is life and I must breathe
Taking in my chest a dying power
Crystallizing my veins
And hardening my heart against the grass.
I cannot run; I cannot run.
Dimly now I see
Truth is pure and rolls itself above
But holds no medicine for me
Just a nod, “How art thee?”
Like a storm in the winter you came into my life Your heart open behind a wall of thunder
Your eyes of laughter Shaded by petrified pain. Yet your love broke through.
Like a spring rain you nourished my body
Giving life in a way I had only hoped
And love in a way that caused my soul
To touch yours.
Like the sun in summer Our love was laid bare
Open to the heat of passion which burned
Without prejudice And thusly exposed our cores Where our souls exist.
Like the colors of fall We were unable to hide from the vivid reality of who we are
One to the other We met our solstice And now we wane away from each other
Awaiting a new year.
I Love You
I know my heart adorns a shape of bliss
Where Love is born of private musings trysts
Encased the whole, my swollen heart
First words are with a kiss.
Love doth have its own transcendence
It begs of knowing from solace stance
Bursting forth from mingle groans
To ask a soul to dance.
Awaken must the immortal boundaries tear
And wake of many whispers share
To kiss and dance in solid light
Where time and eyes are paired.
I watched the sunset tonight
The colors were bright, colorful and full of power.
And the Sun was in its glory
Dressed with the clouds
And my thoughts of you.
The Sun burns unabashedly
And set itself down tonight with such beauty
Only a dead soul would not feel
And marvel at being witness
To the hand of God.
So you and I have set.
Our colors were bright colorful and full of power.
We created our glory.
Dressed ourselves in love
And each other.
We burned unabashedly.
Our bodies vessels for mingling our spirits.
And we danced with such feeling and loved with such force,
Only the Sun compares.
For in the morning it will rise
And that, too will be amazing.
You and I will also rise,
Our love will always be a part of us, a gift, a spark of the Sun,
Given to us
By the hand of God.
