Gentle Language

Heaven is rhythmic here inside our smiles,
sighs escape lips and transform your beauty
into magical curves of pure white light.

Always a flicker away from these eyes:
blue/grey winters that scoop up summer life,
fashion our love into desire's strong bonds.

Sleep will gather together our journeys,
roll them and wrap them into future times,
where we can untangle - throw the minds high

into clouds that sprinkle nature for us.
Skin upon skin, my cheek soaks your heartbeat,
takes the notes across the tongue and swallows

their depths of fantastic life inside life,
new, this brand new personality laughs
its existence right through our wondrous seas.

Evening's smooth, soft tide waves its goodbyes
as night stretches stars and yawns old suns out
to grace vision: fluttering through awake-

asleep within the cool moments breathing
and we dance fingers in between fingers,
a silent operatic performance.

Hair caressed - stroked towards infinity,
I strip your scent of chemicals and drown
in its magnificent simplicity.

Strolls through imagination's opening,
invisible feet, eternity's sand
kicked as this welcome release cracks time's grin,

sensuality whispers into me,
this gentle language rests upon your breast
with fascination, our child will be loved.
