Pregnant Pause

Anticipation’s held breath
The distance between lips and kiss

The electricity driving you mad
Before at last the heavens unzip

In a gush of storm and fury
As son and daughter are born

Bringing forth a new creation
Witnessing the birth of a storm

Summer Rain ~ Cinquain II

Listen
Quiet trickling
A calming sussurance
Accompaniment to sweet bird song
Hush now…

The Dance

Breathless…

The rhythm of the dance entrances still, tiny feet that seek the music’s will. Two bodies caught in pas de deux, I am she, and he is you.

Surrender to the music, beloved let go. This time and space is all we’ll know. Two bodies move in perfect time, mine in yours, yours in mine…

Do not fear the storm. It is as necessary as the sun.

Do not fear the storm. It is as necessary as the sun.

Once Upon A Valentine

He is the thunder in my heart and in my soul
And if I never heard another sound beyond
The storm of his words from this silent screen
If I never saw another light brighter than
The lightning in his eyes in this photograph
Should it be I never feel anything more cleansing
Than the rain of sweet love and emotion that
Is this perfect storm of he and me that we have created
If it is willed that I will only ever feel his touch
Standing in the deluge, embracing the dark sky
Arms and mouth open to catch and taste every nuance
Drinking in the power of the hurricane that he is
Then I would be filled with, wrapped in, the essence of… Him
And my life would be complete

Be the thunder in my heart, the lightning in my veins, the rain to soothe my soul...
