The Significance of Love

Yes you delightful mystery of mine:
You wild unmapped terrain, ideas and flesh,
Your lips and talking, smiles uncharted, fresh
In mood and attitude, in means and mien:
I long to graph your altitude, to trace
Your flame against our passion's arc of skies,
Discover in a moment in your eyes,
Decipher in an instant on your face:
Love, or the significance of love,
Perhaps that you and all things true and sweet
Are one, perhaps that there's nothing to prove
Except that you are here with me complete.
So nuzzling in the tumble of your hair,
I find you here, I find you everywhere.

Firm Against Reason

These paths between our bodies linked in des-
perate loving, paths between our minds that solve
away in spells the fears of mismatched des-
tinies, between our hearts whose paths revolve
each one upon the other, braiding ropes
that bind us firm against reason: are these
the paths I walk when in my dreams our hopes
and futures match?  By all that's good, oh please
let it be so!  I have such simple needs,
such stark desires: your vibrant warm caress,
your simple words describing daily deeds,
your loving eyes that say how well you know
these paths, these paths so cloaked in mystery,
that birthe the Future and kill History.

The Curse

So here we are within exciting times.
Remember now how all this feels -- for on
beyond our lives of now the sweetest rhymes
of all our lives will be now and be gone.
Does life remembered mean reality?
Or is it senses filtered from slow sight?
Or is it things we cannot hope to see
reflected in the glory of a night?
In time we will remember all our future
passioned glories. Moments bright and fleet
that instant love can birthe and gently nurture
an instant's fear can stifle and defeat.
Let us take up the challenge of these times
and turn dissonant fear to passioned rhymes!

To a Woman Who Does Not Yet Exist

Perfect for me: the curvy length of you,
Your easy laugh and smile like a new flower,
Delicate hands that heal the world anew,
Two eyes that flash green-gold: passion and power,
Confident love.  Your voice raised loud in song,
Your curves held fast in dance, decisive wit,
Your grace and beauty.  How can it be wrong
To love you even though you don't exist?
Time will inform the stars when you arrive
And they will fall by dozens, milking sky
Until then I can check my will to strive
On past and present future gone awry.
No woman I have ever met before
Will measure to this one I will adore.

To My Distant Lover

Oh luscious Rita, call me with your call:
Your every word a treasure.  I am close...
I see you in my mind.  I wax verbose...
Where is this conversation going?  All
I know -- somewhere that flowers brightly bloom,
Where snow is steaming off the roofs, the sun
Erasing darkness, warming, having fun,
Pervading all the corners of the room.
And in that room are you and I, a sigh
Escapes your lips as I kiss everywhere.
We wrap our bodies, pleasure running high,
Our souls merging to one, we perfect pair.
Ineffable, this thrill leads us along,
Our minds entwined in talk, our souls in song.

To Shadow Vixen

Oh Shadow Vixen, you invade my dreams
And take my heart by storm!  You life-giver,
You healer, world shaper, I deliver
My whole self to you, and how right it seems!
I live to bring you life, and all you do
I cherish, nurture for you and the world,
You bring me life, simple, brightly unfurled,
Powerful play, childlike, brilliant, and true.
And when you curl into my arms, I'll lift
You up onto the stars, so they can live
Like I live, loving you, feeling this gift,
Abundant joy, uniquely you can give.
Our love, body, mind, and spirit is thus
To give the whole world everything from us.

To Galadriel aka Rocket Girl

Galadriel, your tree reaches the stars,
We speak of wonders, and we laugh a while,
You show me fish, and then I see you smile,
And my heart says "I want you" from afar.
And still I could not ask, quite sure there was
An elven king to bring you joy, of course,
And many knights defending you by force,
But I still asked "why not?" only because
You meet my gaze and I feel warm inside,
Feel full and strong.  And then I found out you
Were free -- how can this be?  So I confide,
You look skittish -- I ask you anyway!
I saw your yes bloom wondrous, and we feel --
Aloneness melts for us, and our hearts heal.

To Vivian

My lady of the stars, the stars that shine
For all the kids because of who you are:
Don't fear my worship, it will all be fine!
My love has wings to carry you afar
Beyond the shining band, the Milky Way,
Beyond the galaxies, back into time,
I see into your soul and I can say
That you deserve my soul, all of my rhyme.
There is limitless time for us to play
Our minds, our hearts, our souls already one;
If in this life, the universe will say,
If not, another life, another sun.
Your beauty, grace, and mind surpass all time
And so, perfect, immortalized in rhyme.

To Lauren

Lauren of sight, of mind, ideas that burn,
I have ideas for you I burn to share --
I long to sit with you once more and turn
The whole world right side up.  And everywhere
We turn our minds and hearts beautiful flowers
Bloom, the world is healed, the world will hear
You, sitting there with me among the towers,
Your grace, moving stray hair behind one ear.
I don't know what the future brings for us,
I don't know you, and maybe never will,
But I love you, with no real plan or fuss,
I love you like to make my heart stand still.
You fire my poet's heart, I can't be terse,
So here's tribute to you in humble verse.

Midnight at the Oracle of the Soul

At midnight at the oracle of soul
I come forth and reveal my tragic story
Embarrassing and tedious, the whole
Thing is now malignant, old and hoary.
Dark leaves above my head are softly hanging
The wind runs through them, dirging melody,
As if the trees are quietly haranguing
Me for the outrage of this tragedy.
I bend my will and soul towards creation,
Groping, never seeing, only guessing,
I'm striving for some terminal purgation,
Or maybe I'm misguided and digressing.
I seek life on my knees, grasping and crawling,
While shadows lengthen, and the moon is falling.

Food for Thought

At the funeral of self deception
The pallbearers always wear white hats to
Signify that they are the good guys you
Think would honor this august reception.
But what they tote in news is never good.
You see it written in their empty eyes.
The weather closes in, the darkened skies
Do not trade food for thought or thought for food.
At the funeral of self deception
Nobody says grace, we’re just looking down
Into the empty hole of empty brown
Dirt, imagining its bad conception.
We walk away. We’re stronger but not good.
Do not trade food for thought or thought for food.

Your Yes

I love your yes. Your yes has made me great,
And handsome, full of ideas and play,
Your yes has helped me calmly navigate
The crazy seas of future dreams today.
Your yes has made me dad to three plus kids
Each more delightful than the other ones.
Your yes gave me the song of katydids,
The sturdiness of trees, the power of suns.
And even when the weight of years and tears
Had beaten all our yes out of your soul,
Your new yes renewed me. We face the fears
Within our hearts, true conversation whole.
The sun, the moon, the stars, all cannot guess
The gleaming vistas in your power of yes.

Pieta

Time creates it all and time takes it all,
And we are left stunned, bereft, wandering
Through the dark forest, dry, and pondering
How the always disappears, and the fall
Is so slow, we don't even feel it, but
Here we are, behind, intolerable,
Life presses, seeming unalterable,
Tears are wide open but emotions shut.
Yet time's no match for love, she is with you,
She is with you Pieta, just behind
That tree, beyond the mist, but there with you,
Within your heart, within your soul, your mind.
What time's scythe changes love always restores,
In the heaven of your mind her heart soars.

To Harumi

Tennyo, magical spirit, here you are:
Sitting here with me.  Every word I feel
Opening my heart, extra time we steal
While raindrops hit the windshield, shining stars.
How can it be a life so fine exists
As sitting sharing everything with you,
So unexpected, intimate, and new,
Our spirits dance, the universe assists.
Sprite of the North, driving off, your kisses
Burnt into my soul -- I feel them in my
Mouth still, fierce and soft, startled birds that fly,
Frightened, until I recall what bliss is.
Trailing rainbows of light, chasing the sun,
Feeling the pull, two hearts beating as one.

Inconvenient

I showed up at an inconvenient time
When you had stuff to do -- important stuff!
And now I write this inconvenient rhyme
Of love for you.  Haven't you had enough?
I send it to your office email -- yikes!
Someone might know that you are loved so deep,
That someone wants to see you -- jeezy crikes!
Like overnight!  Like lovers!  What a creep!
And plus I fart, and interrupt your jokes,
I sweat when I am with you sometimes -- ick!
When we make love, into your sheets it soaks
And ruins them!  It ought to make you sick!
And look at this!  This poem is a rant!
You're better off trading me for a plant.
