ORBITING YOUR BEAUTY
The universe conspires to bring me to you
The chaos of a butterfly’s wing
Creates a breeze that wafts your scent to me
Generates a hurricane
That rips through the fabric of my dreams
And I am trapped
In orbit around your beauty
Like a satellite who cannot escape the pull of your allure.
Every road leads to the lake
Every journey takes me to the sea
Every action becomes another rivulet
Every breath escapes as a waterfall
Even my thoughts become cascading rapids
That suck me into the whirlpool of your love
You are the water I would sip
Without which there is no life.
I cannot escape you
The stars, the sun, the earth
The air I breathe
The light that reveals the world
Every song; every word
All things that live and dream
Every colour; every note
They are merely there to guide me home
For nothing could exist
If you were not there.
I am not real without you.
This is a poem for a special person whose metaphorical wings have beaten in my universe for nearly fifty years.
You can’t beat love. Nothing beats love. Each second is made brighter by it; each moment richer.
Chance brings you together. Serendipity gathers you in and you are hooked. Everything has purpose and the purpose is love.
It is nectar on the lips, soft glows in the eyes and blood that sings.
I wrote this for my lady who is the fusion in my reactor.
