DAWN NEEDING DUSK
17 January 2012

After a day such as today
of weighted onslaughts
of sledge hammers from east and west
and pinsharp darts from north and south
and earthquakes from under
and rockfalls from above,
my aching body
sinks into your moonlight arms
strong and gentle and ever-there
and more luxurious than a bubble bath,
your warm breath
whispering magic everythings
into my eager ears
your lips more intoxicating
than the sweetest wine,
your smiling eyes
caressing the innermost essence
of my waiting soul,
and in a nanosecond
you paint
all memory  
of my war-torn day
gone
and you sweep me
into the enchantment
of a night
of you and me.

Ah, sounds like you have the recipe for bliss handy.  I envy you.

Thanks, Michael.  Giggles, I don't think he would appeal to you in quite the same way as he does to me!  I could have done without the north, south, east and west bit, though!

Delightful refreshment indeed, dear Owl! Every stressful emotion recedes in the presence of such enchanting manifestation of love.

Thank you, Margherita.  Yes, the power of the heart is indescribable.
