Terran transformation

bytungtied2u©

I listen to the fountain raining into my garden pond
watch the ripples, see you looking back at me
the crescent moon hangs over your shoulder
suspended in the circles as they radiate outward
carrying the glow of your soft smile

carrying you to me across time and distance
floating
a phantom presence, with me and still not
like waves washing upon a shore and then receding
you flood me with ecstasy and then retreat

and as your words wash over me
saturate me, soak into my pores
immerse me in the depth and delicacy of your perception
I become Baptised
reborn
to view myself and you and life from a fresh perspective

wide, roiling rivers become ribbons of color,
rhythms upon which to wind my way
as I sing to you my darling, my lover
my thanks for transforming me.

the waves of your affection bouy my step
lift me from troughs, ride me on crests
carry me to distant shores ripe
for exploration

you are a foreign land full
of wondrous beauty,forbidden fruits, kaleidoscopic colors,tantalizing textures
holding the promise of discovery
and exhilaration

you pluck the strings of my spirit
with nimble knowing fingers,
play notes that vibrate to my core

how did you know where to poke and prod me?
coax me to come out of hiding,
to lay myself before you
naked and vulnerable

you reached into my chest
squeezed my heart
commanded my focus
breathed light into my life

you are my pulse
the beat in my breast
the rush through my veins and arteries
you are my quickening

my lover

my bliss
