Moon and Sea

Oh moon and sea

how you dance

and breathe life

into the ancient rock


your interplay

lights the sky with yearning,

your silent whispers

touch my heart


I hear your music

graze the air

and dance with easy steps


your love illuminates the sky,

I am lost in its expanse.


Take me to the land of your fathers

the land where the fairies roam

show me your glorious feathers,

your alchemical lore.


Oh do not hide the marks of

your magnificent splendor,

the furious touch of the dragon

that looms in your hair


shift and shape and craft me

with your mighty blow

take me swift into the arms

of your magical cloak


there, I ride the winds of dreams

surpass the scope of all imagining

lose myself in the sweet vales

of all that can be known.

In the Still

Looking in the mirror, I find you there

still, but very much present

like the presence of my being


you’re there

when I’m walking in the depths of my heart

still, like a barren tree

you stand behind every newly opened door


who knew

that all the pathways

somehow, led back to you

like the unfolding labyrinth

of God, compressed upon itself


fractals upon fractals

dancing in sweet ecstasy


I hold you like the trees hold one other

rising and falling,

two canopies – twisting


like the riverbed.

Come As You Are


come just as you are

for I am longing to adore you

with flowers in your hair

and love upon your cheeks

I entreat you–

rest your weariness upon me

for my arms were made for yours,

my heart shaped to love yours.


Come again

and pierce my sight

with those sharp eyes of the north

your gaze as quick as oceans

as wise as the Earth,

wondrous, like the spheres of heaven.


You are lofty, like a dream

brilliant in mind and soul

come again, my love, come again…

find me filled with love

my flowers bloom with sweet nectar

my rivers swell with milk and honey


if all of nature

plays in our sweet symphony–

shall we dance?

My love, shall we not dance?
