Soul Mates

030 (2)

Calm, while an ice storm rages
Inspired by the waves tossing by our door
What to wish for, only more of long cold nights by the sea
What to ask for, I don’t know, when I have all I need
Imperfect beauty
Hides between the lines and pages

Warm, with the cold wind blowing
Safe in the shelter of arms I adore
Let us be, so that this January is never-ending
Set us free where there’s no defending
Our perfect freedom
Infinite, yet ever growing

this morning…

eyes open wide at sunrise,

i’m pondering a metaphor

for love


to paint a poem of words

of the two of us in couplet

yet apart


today between the lines

you will teach chess to

the school children

today among minutiae

i will savour our

reinvention


let this stanza of our lives

speak to beauty in its rhythm

and its rhyme


let passion write the verse

twin souls in gentle tandem

through the hours


tonight, reverie abandoned

i’ll bathe in quiet

ceremony

tonight, your page bookmarked

you’ll read me as i want

to be


you whisper my name jennifer

i¬†think i’ve found the metaphor

in you
