Carry Me To Our Private

Carry me to our private
bed of white and light,
lay me down into
the escape portal
from the world;
my soul, revive.

Take me to where
the stars are floral,
where we’ll rearrange
the constellations
to suit our tomorrows.

My love, let me feel
your flesh press
into mine;
cover me with your love,
take me away
into your eyes.

Touch Me Then (With Audio)

When my childlike giggles
and our mutual dimples
subside, let our eyes
shift and open the portals
to offer upon ethereal wings
the lift or dive
beyond this world… 

Touch me then
with your unspoken, 
with that lingering
forever-teetering
in how to express
the flooding emotions,

then let them pour out
and crash into mine,
meeting halfway
as a galactic tide,

then touch me slowly, 
touch me tender, 
in breaths without whispers,
touch me for a thousand
forevers.

Touch me like a butterfly
to nectar, 
touch me like the petals
of two reaching
flowers
at the moment
they finally brush; 
touch me as if it were a sin
to rush.

Touch me
without ever looking
from my eyes; 
touch me then
with only
your light….

Feel Me

Close your eyes,
and I will, too;
feel me there,
this touch brushing 
slowly over you,
soft as an exhaled breath
on flesh…
fingertips, lips, 
smoothly caress, 
the gentlest 
skimming,
hair trickling 
across chest,
whispers float
into your ear,
melliferous voice
delivering the elixir 
to each fear, 
sweet everythings
that reach
with flowing, warming heat
every last heart-ailment 
to heal.

Feel
me. 

Into yours, 
my fingers weave;
hands clasp
organically.
So easy
it is 
to love,
to release
all inhibitions:
free fall
into me.

I.love.Leo.Sayer! I forgot all about him! Been belting this out in the car lately, on repeat…

Stroke of a Petal

Yellow petals
slowly unfurl
with inner bravery,
but the natural
gravity
to feel
encourages 
the lean.
We all need. 
We all long
for a touch. 
Even the warmth
of a ray
from the faraway
sun:
it assures
if we open up,
raise our faces
to receive, 
even long-distance
affection 
can be brushed
against 
our cheeks. 
Bloom to bloom, 
bloom to stalk, 
bloom to jagged, sharp edges:
it is all 
love.

Every Season In Love

In every season
of our future,
I’ll have at hand
and in my hair
the flowers,
whites and pinks
to accent these
realized romantic dreams,
femininity, soft, 
silken whispers, 
petals, and tresses 
brushing flesh,
lost senses, 
summer dresses
lifted, sensual 
kisses, wet lip
gloss, hands skim
then clutch
in the rush,
bodies in the garden
fall with lust
once again
into even deeper
married
love…

Hearts and Wings

I have been absolutely entranced and obsessed with the changing eucalyptus leaves in my backyard. I pass a lot of time observing and listening to them through my lens. I know the poetry each one heart-strums inside me, but no words could ever do these images justice. I will let the poetry speak directly to you instead, for so personal and intimate to me are what these leaves and tree portray… I hope you can see and hear it, too, as it pertains to you. ❤
