In Celebration of Love

 


Celestial Embrace

Rushing liquid floats into

ice, pushing against its surface

the flow embarks and rises

over the icy top

forming one expanse of cold

a lake of winter’s embrace.

Underneath this chilled sheath

lies the angel, wings of a winter

waiting to be healed

a soul trapped, frozen

from the unyielding snow.

A gentle creature of an unknown world

emerges from depths of indigo

sensing her, he reaches out

heated fingertips

to brush the angel’s lips

parting their depths to the

star-strewn night sky.

Clouds bend at the touch

of the two souls in ‘midst of a

Gypsy dance

that spins and twirls

the ebb and flow of them

melting the icy shell of water.

Bubbles once captured in ice

turn to pixie dust, carrying them

to the smiling moon, that hangs in this

lavender night strewn with

angelic madness.

Lulls of a harp accompany

her soprano sighs

as he fills her bosom with

sweetened milk and her body

with his own.

Softly she speaks in the

hushed tone of one he possesses

deftly he enfolds her being

into his cradle.

Wrapped in this Universe for two

they float, making love like

slow honey

caught in this celestial bliss

next to the smiling moon.
