The days lapse
with your head in my lap
I'm too blessed to be
so plagued by
wish you would
My book's weak on poems to show you
I'm... smitten.
And though I'd prefer you wrapped around
to curled against me, like a kitten
I do like the way my fingers make you arch your spine and purr.
Sometimes I think I'd better fare
hips-tipped, ass to bare
and yet, I sought bear hugs before
They left my fingers cold.

You can finger the olfactory visitor--uninvited to the evening
with one whiff nostalgia bent
lending syrup to the memory
Nirvanic she! I'm drifting
if a shroud this cloud could be
I'd Juliet--yet, if I did,
I'd miss the fruit I suck in dreams.
Eyebrow and lip aligned:
they heed my General beak,
right flanks assemble
ascending to smirk
atop high tide on threaded string.
I'm winking, but not hoodwinked.
Briefly, blithely I pretend.

On Waking.


one eyebrow lifted
squint-fighting sun sticky
hot her chest
blazing, Morning! sweat
Shut resist
this chaste
happy abeyance laid

on us
smirks retain
teasing donnas.
Can spot nutty eyes ‘neath her lids.

Sure she’s gone round the bend
But why not And also
Who says dawn is brilliant?

She jumped through rainbows
unafraid of how the colors might swim
wading with friends, but on a journey
very much her own

She loved so hard I couldn't help but squeeze her tight
Strong-spirited little butterfly
twirling curly antennae
curious eyes
mind speeding through
adventures too daring to share
Smiles, gifts for the friends left in this town
A gift to bring herself around
Reality too heavy to allow herself to frown
Thoughts too complicated to talk sometimes

My words don't matter much

But I hope she has
her synchronicities explained
her God revealed
her heart settled
her song complete
her puzzle-piece placed

I hope her chest lifts high
her heart glowing bright
her head resting
to relieve
and relax
her mind

She is loved she is loved she is forever loved
Om shanti shanti shanti
Peace peace peace
