Elusive Bird

Gracefully she appears to me, like the rarest of delta birds.  Bringing with her a gentle song and a calming spirit. Delighting in the charms of such a beautifully made and elusive presence, I am lost in wondrous observation.

She offers me a glimpse into her world.  Allowing me to witness from afar, the rituals and interpretations that make her whole. With a sophistication and confidence, I covet, my deepest desires are manifest.

For but a fleeting moment, does she grant me audience.  I do not hold her interest, while she charms my heart. Though I beg her stay, as quickly as she arrives, my captivating delta bird takes flight. Leaving me in prayer, that soon she will arrive once again to captivate my soul.

they discover love together

they discover love together
in the wellspring of youthful hope
never straying from their devotion
passion being its own reward

the storms of life, raging onward
they discover love together
giving support to each other
not succumbing to the struggle

watching their garden grow stronger
the lesson they taught taking shape
they discover love together
the tilling and tending in bloom

dusk approaches, sun having set
reflecting on the life they lived
embracing this stage, journeys end
they discover love together
