Siren Song

Reverie

Morning glimpsed 

behind a curtain

shaft of light

dancing

upon a headboard

dust motes

alighting

stillness disturbed

fingers slowly

moving

over warm skin

mine for yours

awakening

to thoughts, desire

curling around me

within, a band

tightening

every revolution

intensifying

every stroke

a lover’s wish

shattering restraint in

a rush of sound

a bitten lip

the lingering mark

of your possession

Extraordinary

Sometimes

it is in the hoping that something special

something extraordinary

might happen

might be part of our future

it is this that keeps us moving

through our days

our eyes open

our senses

attuned to change

hoping that we’ll recognize it

when it makes its appearance

and then

if we see it

and know it

do we grasp it

do we make sure

that all of those agonizing days and nights

of wanting something more

something unexplained

something undefined

that we give ourselves up to it

with all of our heart and soul

and become extraordinary

in the giving

Light bringer

What prayers are given

within this holy silence – 

how does the wish to be anointed 

with the saving grace of touch

manifest itself,

what way do you desire 

finding a home in a heart’s 

present

as well as its future,

what creed do you memorize –

a name spoken

hushed tones

reverence

a vulnerability you wear

privately

who do you call forth as

light bringer

to your darkness

Her truth

img_2733

Click here for audio

She is quiet

even when speaking,

with much going on beneath the surface

it’s the things that she doesn’t say

that you need to take heed of

for the secrets to her are locked up within those silences

and only you can say if you are brave enough

to search for the key

for her truth is not always bright and shiny,

a sparkling wonder and gem for you to pocket

and treasure

your precious,

her truth is raw

and bloody

and beating

with a heart of its own.

but it’s real

oh yes, it’s real

and it will cut you

and burn you

but you will never feel more alive

than when she touches you

and makes you her own

Undoing

IMG_9219

Every scrap of lace

every length of ribbon

every button

every bow

I imagine your fingers

slowly

meticulously

tantalisingly

deliciously

undoing each of them

and in doing so

…undoing me.

Adieu

IMG_5713

Like a wave born of a swell

another year is upon us, racing

to the shore

pulling the remnants of the previous year

away to memory

we bid farewell to the old year

a time of growth

awareness

joy and loss

a new year beckons

with the promise a new day brings

tides turning

presenting new opportunities

possibilities to grasp 

with both hands

before they slip away

with the tides…
