Moment ..

You look into my eyes ... and
I am drowned in the depth of a placid lake.
The way you tuck that forlorn tendril behind my ear,
push a wisp gently with the back of your palm
and plant a kiss on my forehead ...
a river within me pulses and surges up
to be one with you!
You hold my face in your cupped palm
and keep staring almost with a feeling of reverence,
touch the tip of my nose with a strange awe
as if I might dissolve ... and
my senses get filled with
the dizzying fragrance of wild tuberose,
the aquamarine sky swoops and dives within me.
I talk to you with all my excitement and urgency
but you just witness the movement
of my lips and evolution of my emotion,
and murmur absentmindedly ‘poetry in motion’...
I feel a wild fire inside the hollow of my bones
and a chill of pink blue ice within my veins.
You say I am your princess ... and
I try to fathom the shivering
that rises up from the soles of my feet.
A cactus flower blooms within me
your  fingers, my fingers …
A part of my logical brain cries out ‘you are insane!’
But I push my face against your chest
knowing with stubbornness that I wouldn’t let go
of this moment!

beautiful
I feel a wild fire inside the hollow of my bones
and a chill of pink blue ice within my veins.
it conveys almost everything about that moment...
