My Secret Love

My Secret Love

 

             in random order

 

day dreaming impossible schemes

                          familiar dreams 

 

purple mountain canyon winds

San Antonio River Spirits

 

how can one presume to own

    give a monumental song

    or a carefully crafted poem

                      a sigh of love

                 to a beautiful woman 

                 when it already belongs to her?

 

free form my heart

I wish to write 

a poem of love

I do not know

where to begin to shake

your calm universe

the heavenly constellation

you carefully constructed 

hidden from clear view

mortar still fresh on your hands

                                in your heart

                                  in the rise

                          of our next dawning 

                        

there in your eyes

 

I am confident

our creation Story

is already birthing

 

this humble poem is for you
