Romance (what else!)
Birthday wishes for a good friend of mine. I usually send this out on birthdays along with a fresh poem.
Another early romantic poem (they get better with time).
Now the memories are a tad painful... Here's to the love that never was! "spent in spirit but not wistful - for the next time I shall savour with care - every moment that two lovers can share" Did I even savour the next one?
I think of those days I was rapt - "so deep the bond we lovingly forged - feel you beside me our lips engorged".
Lost in time... "a love that engulfed us - through storm and rain that love animated me and was - a bulwark against the harsh world, cozy and secure".
At every death, there is cause to pause and reflect on these, it helps put living in perspective and to celebrate the time we have (left).
Based on a weird dream I had... For that passing ship that brought me Sleep Eros.
Too bad it was all imaginary. "And in that winter, beside a warm ember - That hearth of ours where we make love - Meld our bodies till all our worries dissolve".
"Heart to heart, body to body. A torch - To bear testament to the love we share - In all the seasons with us without a care".
Wonder, for a very special woman. "hear an old clock chime - As it turns midnight with the promise of turning dreams true - Dreams you held on to for a long time, that reach out and touch you".
About Agape (The Love for all that Consumes). "Things desired for all creatures great and small - That reflect the spirit of the God who made them all"
About Agape again. Love for all of creation. "Father, lover, friend, teacher daily your face changes - As we find new expressions to simply love in all hues".
Introducing a [then] current interest to a dear old friend. "Whose smile could lift my mood, make me go around - Any obstacle that life threw at me, peace pervaded me".
Full of feelings, this one after accepting that we could just be friends. Maia (divine race) of Tolkien. "When do we get back to when our lives had art - As on afternoons we spoke happily with nary a care"
