Notes to the Beloved


[ notes to the beloved ]

I love it when
your edges are soft…

when you are
fluid and open;
like the mouth
of my river…

when our not-knowing
is an offering;
an honest prayer…

when your gorgeous depths
are visible, and they are
singing my name…

when your beauty is so loud
that I can barely hear
my own heart beating
wildly in my chest…

when the scent of you
is my favorite incense…
