Poems to the Ocean

I would rather be ::: the beholder of beauty ::: than the beautiful

silent night

under stars
you and i
full moon
waves lapping the shore
tropical breeze feels
delicious on the naked skin
yours and mine
all night to get to know you
the taste and smell
and sound of your pleasure
mingled with
night creatures
witnessing in wonder
our wonder
our meeting
our slow exploration
of one another
bodies
minds
tastes
sounds
smells
feel of skin on skin

paint

I’m painting a poem
For you
Right here
In my heart

I’m dipping it
In all the colors of love
I have for you

All the ways I love you
All the flavors
Of giving

All the beauty in me
I’ve been keeping
For you

Here

lily

In the shadows
Of your longing
Your body
Is a calla lily
Wearing only moonlight
Dripping
Off your naked form
Licking you
As it slips down
Much in the way
I long to..

angel

Delicately
I place this shell
Once animated
With your breath
Upon my back
Where
If you yet lived
You would feel
The delicious light
Of my golden wingtips
Wash over you
As I carry your body
Across the ocean of
Forgetting
Back to the now of
Remembering
Where your name
Before your birth
Is still sung
Most Precious

Jy is kosbaar vir my

offering

Humbly she comes
Hands cupped
Bearing kindness
Offering words
Whispering
I own
No thing
I bring you
Only this
Naked presence
Of God
Living in me
This is
All I have to give
And in this moment
All of me
Is yours

transcendence

My friend, she asked
How heals your broken heart?

My friend, I replied
I have visited the depths of my grief

And the shadows of my own
Insanity

And I rise now
From these ashes

Immersed
In flames

poetry and prayer

Oh my friend
We say
Poems are prayers
And tears are healing
And love
Tears are prayers too
And poems are healing
And every waking breath
Is poetry
And prayer
And healing
And this whole journey
Is the story of a soul
Finding her way home
Like water to the sea
You’re on your way home
My friend
