Opal Stars, Velvet Dreams

~ My thirst now deep ~ I long to quench to sip this periwinkle wine In goblets cut of harvest moons impassioned pleas now cast of time Tender kisses ~ sonnets placed on fevered lips near rainbow streams In golden castles made of sand I've knelt beside you in my dreams As whispered winds ~ I've called to you before the dew of morning beads and sunlight forms the northern star, in measured breaths of tempted needs In rustled leaves ~ I've heard your voice beneath the dark where crickets play That echoed through my aching heart harmonic to the light of day From mountain top ~ my vision soars ‘cross fertile valleys emerald green In search of perfect precious love amidst this beauty I have seen Beyond the shades ~ of here and now I've felt your breath beneath my skin I've tasted sweet your tender smile and felt the longing deep within For in this mist ~ of moistened glow the heart reflects on distant wing In melodies of long ago, desires silent evenings bring With opal stars ~ I write your name in shimmered streaks across the night Where darkened velvet curtains fall on windswept dreams of sweet delight And now we stand ~ together pure a' glow this jasmine moon above Two fires of a single flame among the rhyme of written love Wishes fly ~ on silver whims far beyond each silent cloud As evening finds us lost again in precious love forever vowed ~
