She murmured like a stream under my surface

She murmured like a stream
Under my surface
And for long the needle
Of my rictor scale never stirred
But in the summer when I called
A shaft of dusty pollen sunshine
Seemed to ignite her hair
With new meaning
As she arranged flowers
In a vase by the stainless sink
The tall blue Delphiniums
The angel White Campanulas
The textured dewy green Hostas
Ignited thoughts, as I saw her beauty
Aglow as never before
Her sideway glances at me
Catching me looking as she
Fingered her hair over her ear
Or how she laughed and licked
The dressing off her fingers
Taking pleasure as she coyly
Looked my way nibbling peaches
A fire of desire was waking in me
The crust of friendship began to crack
Fissures appeared, before, she walked
Now she floated, before we were friends
But soon, somehow, I knew we would be lovers
And so, while I watched her dead head the roses
She turned to me put her red rose lips to mine
Leaving the dead petals fall from her hand
As waves of pleasure breached the Walls of our hearts
A raging love that lay dormant for scores of years
Erupted like a volcano that sacred morning
Yonder we deadheaded our parched lonely souls
For now a love lava flowed between us
And the wasted years we never kissed
Seem closeted in a different morning.

She murmured like a stream under my surface
