Intimacy of Love


Intimacy of Love

A beloved resting on the chest
of the beloved is calmed by the
stream flowing through the heart.

A weeping woman clutches a robe
drawing strength from the one
who wears it.

A mystic enters into a painting
to wander in the secret
gardens of the soul

A lover draws a breath
from the lips of a beloved
through a trembling sigh.

A child falls asleep
in the sweet scent and softness
of a mother’s breast.

A whisper seeks a hiding place
in the graceful curve of a curl
of the beloved’s hair.

A tear flows from the beauty
of a soulful embrace
blessing the moment of presence.

A word in the heart gives birth
to a blossoming essence so delicate
it can never be spoken.
