Oh My Love

For my beloved,


 Oh My Love

Oh my love, my sacred journey

You and I are this space

Love is not contained in flesh

Or moments of your sleeping breath

Oh my love, I'm not enough

To think upon this moment

To live upon the rolling, unrelenting

movement of this.

Oh my love, unto you I am

My heart the silent owl

Through you the seas heaving rush

gives life and I am no more than a grain of sand.

Oh my love, my light, my heart

My furious incantation to life

Remind me I was once trees

and salt and water and fire

Oh my love, my endless fascination

your beauty thoroughly explored

softly reverent of milk like skin

I am finally at peace.
