A growing idea lies naked upon my garden floor.
I’m amused & in love.
She writhes like a snake in ecstasy born of deliverance.
She smiles & the sky above burns in evening tones of blue.
The idiocy of it all turns my eyes to water & the plants the laugh.
I’m gazing now.
Far fetched mushrooms of hope & the chastity of my summer berries grow.
Swarms of tender green shoots finger their way across the open space.
I hear the petals grin in merriment & salutation.
I don’t care if no words pour forth from their sealed lips.
I know their happy.
I know they watch.
I know they love.
My succulent body of female worship sits in fresh repose.
Her sacred flesh a whisper to my gaze.
I bow to her.
She reaches forth with thought & hand & steals my attention from the beauty of my god.
I caress her soft waterfall of luxury & hair.
She pleases me.
Her braided hair.
She makes me laugh as birdsong whistles in trees so tall
& I fall for her.
& breathe. Or sigh.
Or lungs that tell the world I love her so.
& in this garden she rules my heart.
Nature glows in warm applause. A rustle of the autumn wind & she is mine.
My perfect girl.
Tell me Lords & Ladies in all the world!
Tell me how much I am grinning & what sensation resonates within!
What is this insanity that prevails upon my heart and buzzes throughout my crazy mind?
Oh joy of joy and simple, sensational delight and blissful pleasure!!!
I smile & smile & smile some more for I am mad!!!
Mad with desire and passion and want and crazy dreams!
& though my friends I know that fate is frivolous,
that painful end awaits this angel who will one day soon depart,
but in this moment of sweet ecstasy I watch her play!!!
& I smile and I do laugh as she sends me giddy!!
How, How she makes me laugh!!!
My playful friend who sends me to the heavens in one easy bounded smile,
a simple jest, a sweet devilish look and her mischievous eyes!
My god, I am happy!
that this light within my world could power a million lives, I tell thee so!
You think i’m mad? I agree! I wholeheartedly agree & then some more!
But what can be done when my fantasy plays with me?!
She follows me round and fills my ears with voices soft and sights that kill,
She gathers me in and spins me round, she falls and rolls and giggles so!
a tease i say! a tease, a tease, a tease & i am sold!
Sold to this creature who moves me so!
She who creates such delight and passion and electric feeling from deep, deep within,
and she who plays with so, so many smiles upon this face of mine.
My world is alight when she’s around.
& yet I know that fate, that evil disciplinarian, has edited me out of her happy ending.
~ Her beauty, her zest, her very being excites me!…but I know the end.
