love poems 1

here are some of the poems that i have written to my love, kera …

in no particular order

how many lovers can meet on the head of a pin?

kera…

the future is meant to be like the horizon
a fixed distance away
never nearer
never here

but somehow since i met you
it gets closer every day

the joy of sharing my life with you
the wonder of you sharing
your life with me

this is beauty in it’s purist form
right up there with the sunrise
the sunset
and children…yours and mine

how does perfection get any better?
what could possibly last longer than eternal love?
is this what they meant when they said
“we could have danced forever and a day!”?

peace, love and how many lovers can dance on the head of a pin?

scenes of you and i

one page

‘borrowed’ from the barman
to explore the love of two women

there’s the memory that has haunted me
of a love that used to be
a yearning that pulled me around the world
and back again

a youthful love
glossed over by time and space
anything but forgotten
intangible but,…somehow real

tentatively touching, reality sets in
ghosts are set free to question
the answers to the questions
that time and space set free

and the wonderful moment that is now

the remarkable woman that is you

draw me deeper
every line etched with loving detail
each colour
more vibrant than the next
the last
the shading…the perspective…

just right

sublime

peaceful scenes of love
of you and i

metaphoric meanderings

this heart needs a little t.l.c.
and a lot of work
i would be…

honoured…
for you to accept it
with my deepest love
and utter trepidation

you can use it
to hold the door open to my love

peace, love and metaphoric meanderings

(this was written to accompany the gift of a heartshaped doorstop that i made)

other momentous occasions

again
you touch me

still
i long

now
you replenish me
here
again
still

…now

peace, love and other momentous occasions

clearing the cobwebs from my mind

the hazy glaze of sleepy eyes
and the warm glow of morning embraces
are a great combination
for sharing a newspaper
or discussing dream homes
and other aspirations

but when it comes
to the written word…
whether it be
expressions of love
thoughts on the nature of humanity
or a letter to mum…

not so easy!

peace, love and clearing the cobwebs from my mind

here i come

i am not quite sure
why i am in here writing
while you lay naked
on the other side of that wall

i’m pretty sure it’s because
you need your sleep
and i’m not sure you’d get any
if i were there beside you

or it might be the coffee
(i had a fair bit today)
whatever my reasons…
no matter how i explain it

i must be stupid

peace, love and here i come

abundance

i give thanks
each and every day
for the opportunity
to share your life with you

with your warmth
your humour
your drive and determination
you are a delight to be near

you are an admirable woman kera
and i am proud to be your partner

thanks for your faith
your friendship
and your love

peace and love in abundance

learning to love legibly

the letters i write
for you
barely scratch the surface
of the pages of our life together

but…

sometimes
fears and doubts
seem to obscure my words of love
and desire
smudging them
with feelings of unworthiness
and ancient pain

please be patient
look deeper
and know that they are there

you are indelibly etched
upon my heart
and nothing could ever erase that

peace, love and learning to love legibly
