finding and keeping love

pleasures ahead (a poem)


when the moment arrives
there will be no teacher
and no student
only a willingness to open
and connect
with every available jolt of energy
a cup of coffee in the afternoon
becomes a gateway
to pleasures ahead
and a hand to hold
becomes a partner to grow with
explore inside and out
define edges
push boundaries
open hips, lips, hearts, and heat
and the hot hot heat
is unavoidable
if the fear is to be burned away
if love is to find purchase
the regulations and rules
must be addressed and modified
to make room
make willing adjustments
deeper breathing
harder edges that blur on demand

nothing is easier than falling in love
nothing as thrilling
as terrifying
and opening
to all that god
has to offer


“what’s next?”
then we listen


Spread the love
