My poet's note:  My dear friend Robert, it is always my tremendous pleasure to collaborate with you and explore the wondrous realms and poetic nuances of emotional and spiritual expression. Thank you Robert, for inviting me to compose with you and to experience the magic of collaboratively creating poetry. Your generous talent and wonderful friendship inspires me to reach ever higher as we continue to combine our pens and write in artistic unison with one poetic heart, soul and voice.

 



Can it be, into this world we are dropped from heavenly streams that have never stopped? With sweet hope gifted to our souls delight, oceans of love and its fiery desires; ladies so fair, we thank our keen eyesight and leap into romance hottest fires. Can it be, wonderment is our reward given for living in a world so hard? With love's soulmate waiting a heart to touch, deepest seas of hot sexual pleasures; daring to embrace and love very much this bountiful store, of life's great treasures. Can it be, that in life's short duration we go beyond mere infatuation? With deeper dreams that bless spirits in need, grant romantic nights of sweetest relief; birth greatest pleasures of harvested seeds fruited in soul's spiritual beliefs. Your questions asked with pulsing energy of lovers’ wonderland of synergy.. Gifts do flow from fountain to foundations of souls inspiring minds to understand; seductive passion’s yearning flirtations of red embers roused to lusty flames fanned. In awe you long to know love’s mysteries, untangling threads in tender reveries.. Of all the gold offered in sun’s rich rays Sol would be poor in the worth of our love; for never could there be more wealth of praise than for ambrosial taste from gods above. During this life as our lustrous hearts’ beat we can transcend mundane with love’s white heat.. Our physical plane of mortal being is heightened with intimate unity; body and soul in tantra foreseeing weaving love’s strands into eternity. Robert J. Lindley and Susan Ashley (a collaboration) July 31, 2018 ______________________________ *For the purpose of this collaboration, tantra represents the weaving of strands into a unified whole and liberation of energy and expansion of consciousness*

"We go beyond mere infatuation?" Souls of grandeur, insight and beauty cannot respond to life on a whim! Fleeting emotions, shallow pleasure, hearts devoid of meaningful and resonant beats won't "wear love's strands into eternity".. Dear Susan, it is the depth of an infinite ocean what you wrote in collaboration with Robert! A collaboration that transcends the ego and ascends higher levels in the realm of poetry! A FAV! Thank you for sharing a wealth of art to satisfy an avid reader's thirst!

I tried the fire extinguisher, but it only fannned the flames, Susan. Had to call every neighborhood fire department in Chicago to extinguish the blaze that you and Robert set off with your steamy duet. Whew! :) Best wishes, Gershon
