WAVES


You come to me...in waves...


swirling through quiet and secret places

held deep within my soul


while I walk along the beach

of our love...


...hearing...


the screech of gulls

singing sea songs of heart-bonded lovers

circling...hovering...dipping and soaring

on windy columns of faith and hope


and sweet sunset-tinted dreams...

floating silently in a driftwood wake

slipping silently to shore


... in waves...


caressing sands of time,

erasing footsteps of past regrets...

...swirling eddies of pain...

carried out to sea

nevermore to muffle and drown

the beat of my heart.


Your breath against my cheek...


like feathery clouds...

...silk-whispered promises of forever...

scudding across tear filled eyes

like rain-streaked skies

reflecting rainbow hued memories


of us


flickering candle light

casting aromatic shadows

on observant angels

peering through crystal glass

and mirrors


as we bathed in the glow

of each other

wrapped and enraptured

beneath skylight windows

baptizing our souls


...and each other...


with love unbound

by two hearts

seeking one dream

of love


through a soft-spoken question


("Will you?")


and a whispered promise


("Yes")


Now and Forever

to love and be loved


you come to me


...in waves...

TIDES


You come to me in tides...


Surges reaching to the stars,

To the powerful, yet gentle lunar force

Which with cadence, beckons us home,

Through its glowing, ghostly beacon of life.

Pulsing and melodious, alleviating and lucid,

Reflecting and lacing brilliant crystals

Over black-velvet waters of our soul.


You come to me in tides...


Stretching forces of life and rhythm

To a shore of tranquil, utter comfort,

Possessing yet fierce power of passion,

The encompassing wave of crowning love.

Before its wake, it billows a pure and purging crest

Drowning parasitic barnacles, and filling spaces of

Spiraling, ebony undertows of darkness.


You come to me in tides...


As we stroll along the shore,

The long, spindly slanted patterns

Of our evening, moon shadows

Casts images on the sands far behind us.

Never to obscure our course ahead again,

None ever to force their murky vessels

Into the ports of our rich and bountiful sea.


You come to me in tides...


Wind filling and moving my empty sails,

Swirling and dancing of natures celebration

Through satin pastel, moon-lit skies,

Awakening senses long quiet and forgotten,

And glittering dreams, once thought illusioned,

Lifting gull's wings free and unbound in skies,

Lifting me to meet your beauty in the heavens.


In tides, you come to me
