Shadow of Your Heart

Stroke me with your naked love

When no one is around.

Tell me with your spirit’s voice

What words cannot expound.


Bathe me in your buoyancy,

In heat and tenderness.

Hold me with a lover’s ease

In infinite caress.


Raise me to such ecstasy

My body floats above.

Dance me to the rhythm of

Your heart’s resplendent love.


Reveal me in my candidness

When hearts and minds converge.

Know me in the words I speak

Of hopes and dreams submerged.


Find me indeterminate,

Yet patient, lithe and keen.

Place me in the moments which

Are captured in between.


Hide me in your lightness,

And the shadow of your heart.

Enfold me in your sleeping arms

At night, when we’re apart.

In Dreams Unfolded

A silk cocoon envelops lace,

Which holds me deep in your embrace,

And whisks away without a trace,

To paradise I need not chase

In dreams unfolded.


And in the instants that we share,

As kisses wrap and hold us there,

The waters warm our bodies fair;

I live those moments, as they bear

Our dreams unfolded.



Be my hideaway.

When rain descends and soaks my feet,

Light my soul on fire and warm me from inside.

Let’s burn together.


Be my hideaway.

When dreams are all I hold and spirit falls,

Light my soul on fire and fuel our reverie.

Let’s rise together.


Be my hideaway.

When delight abounds I want to shelter it,

Light my soul on fire and I’ll light yours.

Let’s hide together.

A Dream’s Dream

Intro: Last night I experienced a first: A dream within a dream. It was pretty awesome. The vivid imagery of my dreams inspired this poetic recounting of what felt like such a real experience. I will leave it at that, without explication of the meaning….

I walk lightly through perpetual fields,
And wheat beards caress my cheeks.
Overwhelmed by a sea of gold,
And the sweet smell of the countryside.
The sunlight forms a silvery halo
Around thin grey wisps of cloud
Which texturize the azure sky.
Exultantly free, perfectly silent,
I lie down to rest.
I close my eyes, and begin to dream…

In the far off distance, you are there,
Unaware of my presence or my gaze.
Looking out at the cerulean glacial lake,
Contrasted by majestic mountain peaks,
Separated only by immortal evergreens
That reach tenaciously for the Heavens.
Miles exist between us and yet there’s closeness,
A comforting knowledge in each of us
That great distances are bridged by love.

I awaken to my reality,
Peacefully astonished by my dream’s dream.
