Love

It is a beautiful thing

to know love.

To feel it

burning,

aching,

glowing;

how I have known love

is as small as an hour born

of its grand, magnificent day.

I have loved in many ways.

Is there a garden I am yet to find?

A moment still to spring

upon the delicate plough of yesterday?

I am certain there is more to come.

I shall wait for it by the gate

where the red roses wither

and the daffodils wake

in sweet tufts

of two.

All The Lovely Things

If I were a forest,

there would be afternoon sun

slicing through my trees.

And little white rabbits

would hop along the way

between the daisies

and the rushing river

and I would know

this was the sweetest day.

If I were a forest,

I would be home.

For me.

And for all the lovely things.

Searching

It is the softest kiss

lingering within a dream.

A wish of the soul to be held.

Arms that lay bare.

Eyes on a wall.

It is quiet, it is searching

all around

for you,

my love,

for you.

And what if the day of you

arrives in my arms?

Will my soul shout

yes

I know it is you!

like it sweetly shouted

once before?

Will it be love, my love?

Will it be you?

Garden Of Memories

This bliss springs from gratefulness.

The sweet garden of memories

we planted within

my heart.

Scarlet Dreams

Grip my body in darkness

and I will show you

your soul.

May the black of the air around us

swirl

with scarlet dreams

and indigo flight.

Beautifully Us

Take me to the fire.

Dance with me

in the spaces between

the flames.

Burn with me, into

the quiet

of everything pure.

Everything.

Perfectly

beautifully

us.

Darling Day 20. This Night

Under dim lights of orange,

whisper to me

darling,

of the places your soft touch

will sail me to

this night.

Darling Day 5: Let It Be Love

Darling heart,

sing sweetly

with dreams of the tomorrow sun.

Hold me in my broken longing.

Balance my soul with a million stars

plucked

from the eternal night of love.

And let him come,

dear and darling heart.

Steady and sure,

let him find us when he has

drifted into the honey

of his own sweet soul.

For what is yet to exist

has already been written.

Let it be, darling heart.

Let it be love.

One Beautiful Moment

Is there a star you would like to keep?

Out of all the stars of us, is there

one precious twinkle

you’d like to cup in your hands

for the rest of your forever?

To me, you are the sky.

The whole sky,

glistening to the melody

of a million love songs.

I could never pick one star.

I could never pick one beautiful moment

of you.
