fragrant wind
stoking your fire
with the driftwood
unburied from the sand
the ocean pounds our desire
for each other in light from high
dream to the intimate colors of delight

#89. Fragrant

November 22, 2009


Fragrant is the flower
you give
for my spirit to know.

Gentle is the caress
you have brought
to my heart.

Lovely the vision
as you walk
across the floor to me.

Melodic is the song
you have played
in my body tonight.

Sweet is the taste
you have left
on my tongue.

#42. a fragile close

October 7, 2009

a fragile close

lies fine like
        fragrant linen
                lay full between us

an essence distilled
     of a mundane finish
         over a divine origin.

the shattered crystal
        the broke angry knife
                 the wife lost

crowded in a dangerous bed
          where a husband rejects

glowing dancers allow
            strangers to fashion
                             magnetic myth

creating a six month
              world of winter cat
                        spring sex

and bonds
          unbreakable by marriage
                                 divorce or death.
