This night

feed the 
chattering
mice,
their due.

water the
plump
sphered
sunset
pumpkin

moist.

and may
all your
fairy
tale
dreams 
all come
true.

and in 
your
celestial
dance,

that binds
the hearts
of mortal
men.

and fires 
their noble
passions 
of intimacy
and awe...

lay their
hearts
gently
down 
upon 
your 
pillow,

and 
fetch the 
midnight
stars,

The courtship poems 47

 

This morning"s
time regrets
caught
me in it's 
shadow,

and in
hope I
 
reached
for the
magic
reflecting 
in your 
deep dark
pool eyes.

like sapphires
sparkling
inside a
Holy Grail.

a lover"s
covenant
of sorts.

and in
this moment,

I  celebrated
and danced
through
the universe,

in awe,
from this 
heartbeat
to the
next...

this morning

3:00 a.m.

this was a

The shades
by your
bedroom
windows

morning

anticipation

moment 
when
you first

comes to
me like
a siren
dream.

and it
may just
be a
Monday
morning
to the 
rest of 
the world

and the

of the 
day.

is the 
moment
you first
awake.

and i

The courtship poems 45

 

Last night
I kicked
around
in my
head

listened
calm
to my
heart,

and then
in my
mind in

the tenderest

of places
I found 
a picture
of you.

it set
the edge
to the
moon,

and stars
and all
of the
comets
streaking
across
the sky
on fire..

and in
the moments
between
heart beats
were the
ties that
bind us.

the half
wink
in your
eyes,

the look
that
moves
