SURRENDER

Your eyes,
a sea
of sparkling stars
hold time
suspended
in night,
misty air,
glowing
like the moon
hanging
her desires
on passing clouds,
longing
to shine
beyond
herself.
Your smile,
a glistening ripple
in deep,
still
waters,
radiantly
breaks to the surface
dancing with hope
and flashing promise
that all is well
with that
which swims
beneath.
Your sigh,
a warm breath
in a vast
wilderness,
whispers
its surrender,
lingering,
and I
helpless
in its path
disappear
into its fleeting,
floating
moment.

    And if one is going to be captive

    What a way to go…

    Sublime sensitivity and beautiful making of a moment that lingers I’m sure beyond the tick of a clock.

    I flew home last evening, and saw the moonlit clouds below. I was wondering how they looked from the ground… Not in any hurry to get there, though… Ground, I mean. This write seemed almost a dance to me.

  • Many thanks to you Dick…..always a pleasure seeing you mate.
