Your love is a flowing river…
Your love is a flowing river leading me toward isolated caverns of tranquility,
Restful as the liquid colloquy curling round and round reflective stones sitting in a
Nestled high along the hem of a darkening leather tundra.
Fold me into your heart like linen
In cabinets freshly perfumed with cotton,
Bind me fast to yourself as a sash in celebration,
Cradle me in your hand where I will dwell in the cup,
Unwinding knots at the end of a day burnished by fire.
