When I recall the quiet noise of morn

The days I pine, the darker eyes that loom

Ask less my mind, for when I in a gloom

It is the sky I seek to slow forlorn


The memory a haunt of sorrow found,

As lives we sow are asked to further go.

Beyond the real of the love we know

Is sunlight sure to welcome saner ground.


In between slats of home a golden air

Bemuse fear of letting go, losing her

For it is beautiful the morning stir

Of golden leaves – descend summer’s ware.


So when in the morning sun I wake alone

Her elegance in brilliant sky be shown.


In the throes of love, we toss one another across the bed,

with wild abandon our kisses pushing our limbs to the side,

opening closets we occasionally leave secured instead

a quiet waiting desire, that begins a stir from deep inside,

waits to be tapped, hopes triggers will release, oh please

stop the light feathers, flitting circles, and firmly draw me in,

her smile is knowing with the ache of pleasure’s tease.

His arms reach, strong hands, firm on shoulders pin

her wet suck to the linens, eyes that suggest soft,

I am in control now, I want you to take much pleasure,

in the slow deliberation, tongues touch, sudden, hips aloft

to feel each other’s fire begin to mingle, gasps reassure

Abandon’s animal yet response, gentle coos of a dove

whilst the heat of exchange, their need, elegance in love
