Enchantress

Glass
on table
fills with morning

Awake
her name
stuck in my throat

I reread her poems
sweet words
breaking my resistance

Thinking
do i want to fall
in love again

Maybe too late
I have met her
there is desire

Feelings crawling
like winding snakes
in my soul

Her radiance
and fragrant words
kiss me

How did I know
I would 
feel these thoughts

What is she thinking
what do 
her eyes see

lately the sun
breaks through the clouds

Before that
the sun, the moon
were mere black holes

Do I wish 
to fall in love

Do I seek
a muse
a lover
a sister
a friend
an everything

Maybe she is
a sorceress
a siren
a poetess
an enchantress

Outside my window
the honeybee
labors furiously
from flower to flower

Much like my thoughts
as her name
is on my lips

Am I falling
to enchantress 
calling

I walk to the beach
by the seaside

as a flock of seagulls
flies from the shores
of my soul....
