one leaf dangled

one leaf dangled from
a single spider-web strand
in fresh morning air

as I greeted the sun,
sitting under a tree in
my dew-filled backyard

I was stilled by the
beauty of this lone leaf, in
its simplicity

But, then the leaf fell
I was startled, but the joy
in my heart  remained

One in three

Offspring of the rib
Soft enticement of the flesh ---
Woman beauty draped

Mother rebelling
Children to sag on the breast
Eve pining at God

Mother submitting
Heaven's pleasure in the skin
Mary, bringing the Christ

Magdalene, my thirst
For caress of oil and love
Open core of milk

Summon Anat too
With Aphrodite, Venus kiss
And the open pea

All one in love's three
The triumvirate of praise
The edge of prayer

Goddesses are whores
And whores as goddess reigns still
Love sells men cheap to dreams

Samson, not I,
Menelaus too, heart blind
Left me stupefied

And yet I am sure
Any woman's love is better
Than no love at all

Mother's are virgins
In son's eyes, wives are his shrines
And whores are his peace

Where sin mars desire
And the moon sets blood on fire
For breast and children.

Shhhhhh!

Stole kisses in nooks….
Above the frame dirty looks
Over due art books
