+ Fav Poet



We are not yet one but no longer like sky’s distant two,
I sense your tender skin’s pulse and feel the lips’ pull of you,   
And   know  from  fire’s smoldering  iris I need look no further:
Orbiting closer, jeweled worlds swirl around each other

Like planetessimals,  no longer wanderers of ashen night,
Yet charted by twined veins, twinned together by buds so tight,
Gliding in space forever warmed  in heaven’s embrace:
A fresher paradise than that created on earth’s rockface.

What existed then as a seed in your eyes  faintly  glowing -
All around now, winds of celestial fragrance  blowing;
If lovers hold candles when  time of after-dusk trembles
Then two can be one united by stars’ and sands’ marbles,

With only paradise’s soul bare as vulnerability’s  essences,
This gift of near-sacred vow awakens everlasting senses.  
So,  on and on this carousel of dance and passion sustains -
Leaning on your hair’s trellis, you deign a kiss that ordains

A rehearsal of flamed vows for a lifetime in this bower
Where  fruits’ memories bathe in love's enthralling power.
Our star visible to all as if multiplied nebulae are ascendant:
A twin-point  merging  in the expanse of lit galaxies resplendent.
