When He Kissed Me 

When he kissed me , the earth moved 

Lakes flowed into oceans and oceans into springs

Frogs procreated and Tadpoles popped out of their jelly eggs 

Pregnant skies gave birth and fish swam in twirls and swirls 

Competing with the birds building love nests together 

I looked in his eyes and he held my gaze 

He held my world in it 

He was my cocoon and I was the sheltered 

I could hear the approval of the elements 

It was like magic beyond the magical

When he kissed me……. 

Moistened lips quivering for more

And there is more 

…….. He is kissing me……

The Foolishness Of Love

When I think about you

I remember the foolishness of love

I build walls and you build bridges

You tear down my walls and you find me

I lock the doors and you come in through the window

I walk away and you run right after me

I can’t live with you and yet I can’t live without you

Like flesh on bones and skin on flesh

We have become inseparable

I have tried to set you free like a bird that needs to fly

But you always fly right back to me

I am writing poetry again because you have given me back my voice

I shut my eyes and still I see you

When I sleep, I dream about you

We kiss, we make – up and then we are at it again

Wallowing in our own foolishness

The foolishness of love
