Skipping a stone

Charles Fields II 1955 (Fort Bragg, NC)

By any mellow mood equation

So it seems
this heart is taken

You have gotten under my skin,
Why should i try to deny it

When clearly
you are the star In my prayers hopes and dreams

i sing of what you are to me

You are kind compassionate caring
Sharing our visions as we kiss

Look one another
in the eye as our hearts dance together

Skipping a stone

Passion flows from here to eternity
Touching every star

Whenever you and i feel naughty
we nasty kiss igniting, kindling

Feeding the passion with the pulse
Until it gets so strong

Overcomes our other senses

And we push pull each other
Towards some quiet place

we go
To celebrate moments of expressions
We can no longer contain in our hearts mind

Skipping a stone

Adventurous, we look across eternal seas of time
To rediscover all the lovers creeds

Spoken between those
Who have ever had a love to share

Love expressions
Too powerful to let go of

As i surrender my heart to you
For a moment of bliss

when our love tides coincide
We tie our tongues together

As we do our ritual love dance
Loving and daring,

Oblivious to
What you are or are not wearing

You are beautiful to me

You are the messenger
You deliver love magic

We send to one another
From voices deep within

Spoken in a language without words
Quietly understood between our hearts

Skipping a stone

Here, as i lay dreaming
No doubt in heat

Drifting in passions warm embrace
Navigating the waters of our hearts

On this our journey
Singing of love and of life

In the Love


The moon and stars
