Welcoming Spring!

The gentle cascade
of cherry blossom petals
spills to the ground
- tears of joy -
welcoming you! 
And I recall:-
Your gentle whispers
the warmth of your breath
 upon my cheek...
Your sweet melody
the notes of your song
tangled in my hair...
Your delicate embrace
the essence of your perfume
wafting all around me..
And I too welcome you!

Love Is

Love is
the silence
before the storm
the awakening
before passion
is born
Love is
the sigh
of the wings
of a butterfly
the gentle
which kindles
the tempest

The Sky Danced

on a blue sky
the long hot summers
We were so high
on love
swathed in the 
mirth of the cicadas' song
as it rose and fell
and floated
all around us
in our hair
in our hearts
Under our feet
the sky danced
by the mirth
of the cicadas' song
which reeled 
in the blue
until the sky bled
Red flames
devoured the blue
tainted the hue
spewing the
silence of
all around us
