My Lover

earth my otherAfter all this time I’ve come to terms
With hours, with life, with challenge, daily,
with my other
Eye to eye, I’ll look, with any or another
And feel secure to have, to hold, as equal
as my sister or my brother
I’ve learned to give and take and not to count
OLYMPUS DIGITAL CAMERAin values too distant from our mother,
Earth, I’ve earned your riches but can not discount
The other’s right to share you as my lover

Feist

bird-wall

Out of the solid body came the word
Winging its way, winging its way to where
Out of our past came a reptilian bird
Where are they headed and what can they say
From what to enter the wide wider world
Come a love and its spermatozoa
What do we see in the sun, moon and star
To capture the heart and carry it onward

Love
At the pace of a tortoise and hare
At the solid body, into the solid body
Comes love

Affinities

affinities

I have an affinity for strugglers, fighters,
I realise,
those who have taken it on and come through
You don’t need the small talk, the likes, the commentary
You feel it when you look in their eyes, empathy
It’s what Namaste taught me, I think,
How to get straight to the point, legacy
All the things we have shared to get us here.
