In his arms I am free to explore the oceans ~ 
openly caste my gaze 'pon stars twinkling 
 in the midnight skies; 
his hand gently caressed my face, 
as willow wept her tears 'pon the winds ~ 
From wind a genteel sigh of reprieve is released
as tender droplets of precious rain, 
and honeysuckles wantonly bloom 
'pon receiving them -- And Aye,
I am free to explore the oceans and more,
in his arms I have found both ecstasy and tranquility
For he is the hearth of my home...

    This poem is so truly lovely. It's like a soft, gentle breeze upon the skin. The words create a cherished moment as it speaks so dulcetly. It reminds me of keltic legends, ancient vows and romantic visions. Very warm in passion and cool in colorful artistry ... A masterpiece ... MoonBee
