“Licence my roving hands …”  John Donne

 

There She Was

Where paths lead,
the abiding question
niggling at my core,
river bend
or river pool stroll
and so it was,
waterhens idled
and the water was velvet
under the spell of lilies
those sirens of fertility,
and there she was
nymph arising,
my mantra
lead me not …,
failing,
bursting into flames as
her eyes called.

Temperature Rising

We started at zero,
undressing,
caressing,
falling,
sliding,
temperature rising,
sweating,
feverish,
a commensurate act
we were lost
over the edge
and then came back
starting at zero.
