a sumptuous wine
in its oaken cask,
rhapsody spun from
composer’s fertile imagination,
grand and stolid redwood
born from haphazard windblown seed.
The feel of you
your sweet presence
ignited many an afternoon
on hillside or ocean,
left the taste and texture of passion
in many locations around the globe.
These many years of our communion
sharing of intimacies
body and mind
delicate and timely
threads of wondrous memories
that i embrace with great delight.
