early autumn joy

the crash of your ocean washes the confidence from my skin
replacing it with the turmoil of your desire
i might drown in it
or in my tears that tumble because of it

all sides of my sight are beset by your brilliant sun
where your eyes cast no shadow across me
i might burn from it
or from the fire ignited inside me from it

through my soul’s window, your willow’s whisper
breathes a love that flows but never ebbs
i might fly with it
or with joy that grows from the magic within it

  1. After being away a while, I have been catching up on your many wonderfully gripping poems;
    I love the nature imagery that flows through them…

    “through my soul’s window, your willow’s whisper
    breathes a love that flows but never ebbs”

    Beautiful.
