With Love

Those days,
when it all comes crashing down,
and logic whispers …
but the roar of misery is greater,
and though friends call round,
the pain lingers and,
though the tent of joy is rent wide,
the seamstress you need most,
is self-understanding,
cum amore.

There Was A Beginning – a poem by Paul Vincent Cannon

Inception – Word of the Day

There Was A Beginning

There was a beginning, of course,
when our lips and fingers spoke a mythic language,
in an age when time stood still between us,
or so it seemed.
We chartered erogeneity
to its apex,
and rode waves of joy,
as if we were riding a demon bull,
for all our lives depending on it,
only to rest in each other,
just for the briefest moment
until we recommence that conversation,
from the very beginning,
once again.

Endless – a poem by Paul Vincent Cannon

Infinity – Word of the Day

IMG_2653.jpeg

Buzz Lightyear might have said about the outback, “To infinity and beyond.” It certainly stretches out on the Great Central Road. This photo – on the way to Warakurna.

Endless

Perhaps love can be likened to an outback road
that stretches out endlessly,
beckoning discovery and adventure,
where nothing is fixed,
where bends and rises amplify curiosity,
and horizons become goals,
some never reached,
but always dreamed,
always held,
as the road leads ever on.
Perhaps love, like and outback road,
is endless, beckoning,
dreamed,
and held.

All Tangled – a poem by Paul Vincent Cannon

Commitment – Word of the Day

Unknown.jpeg

“A fish and a bird may indeed fall in love, but where shall they live.” Elizabeth Gilbert ‘Committed, A Skeptic Makes Peace With Marriage’

 

 

All Tangled

Love is a many complexed thing,
a tangled exploration
of feelings on a threshold privately held,
and to speak it would be to unravel the
mystery unspeakable,
the conundrum of aching, longing,
a certain uncertainty,
shades between black and white,
that hold me fast.

Agreed At Our Center

Sometimes I know what you’re thinking,
then I wonder that I’m hearing what you’re saying,
I wonder too what you’re not saying,
or if you’d say anything at all in this moment,
but I do know this,
we’re agreed at our center of love.

Completely Lost – a poem by Paul Vincent Cannon

Enrapture – Word of the Day

Completely Lost

I’m not sure what possessed me,
well, no, that’s not really true,
you did as you passed by,
and I reached out to take your hand,
strangers though we were.
I wanted to reach out to you,
you smiled like the morning sun,
unfazed by my brazen move,
and I lost myself in your welcoming eyes,
then after coffee,
I lost myself completely
in your ruby lips.

Within You – a poem by Paul Vincent Cannon

Inspiring – Word of the Day

Within You

The corset of your beauty is laced so tight
I can hardly breathe,
I avert my eyes, once, twice, that I might draw breath,
Yes, your eyes, your lips, your everything are
but nothing like the beauty which shines from within you.

Your Skin – a poem by Paul Vincent Cannon

Pummel – Word of the Day

Your Skin

To pummel your skin,
with resounding rhythm,
pa pat rat tat, pa pat rat tat, pa pat rat tat,
thrumming, thrumming, drumming, drumming,
as we go marching on.

Grace Lives – a poem by Paul Vincent Cannon

5 Lines – Grace

Grace Lives

Grace is many things when all considered,
followers of the Nazarene say it’s God’s forgiveness,
others will say it is the poise of a ballet dancer,
while others say it is the flight of pelicans,
truth be told, it is the middle name of the one I live with.

It Starts Slow – a poem by Paul Vincent Cannon

Rivulet – Word of the Day

IMG_0094.jpg

Bluff Knoll. It began as a rivulet then turned to a trickle, and following the showers, a running creek.

 

It Starts Slow

That sultry night,
dancing slow,
I felt your heart speaking,
as I traced the line of your neck
to your lips,
while in the small of your back
a bead was speaking of your passion,
and just for a moment,
I felt you shudder.
