The First Chapter

a curve of
the eyebrow,
a quick glance,

naked feet
kissing
dainty sandals,

a familiar touch
on bare
shoulders,

a passionate
circumstance,
you and I.

* * *

in books of
memory this is
the first page,

the first chapter
when I saw you
and touched you,

soft voices of
intuitive physicality
dictating you to me,

reminding me of love,
a dim memory on the
tip of my tongue.

* * *

music from the moon
and scented
candles from the sun,

worlds remade,
tropical storms
and hot winds,

melting
sombre mountains
with rainbow rains,

kissing you, and
swimming through
seas of song.

* * *

hearts swapped
as souvenirs saved
for remembrance,

all places are
foreign shores
without you,

hope alone
is abandoned on
a desert isle,

waiting for dawn
to spread its wings to
clear away the mist.

* * *

a missing mind sleeping
with thoughts of you
to remember dreaming,

a heart and soul
distilled into
unfulfilled longing,

their cold feet
standing on fields
of frost,

lost shivering,
yearning for a
second chapter's thaw.
