Love Poem


this book of love notes

lies next to our shopping list,

plans for meals,

to be placed on the lips

and savored.



circle of sun


of your embrace

perfect grace



Thanks for that middle-of-the-day phone call.

i hear your voice and instantly rejoice.

It is a balm in grey sky winter,

a holiday seaside calm.



as light fades

darkened by clouds and time

i wait

while cooking

while reading

for the click of your key

to unlock home



I whisper your name

in prayer

in supplication

to sooth

At night

I curl my arm around

your smooth flank

contour my body along yours

I whisper your name

a lullaby



curve of your body against mine

tells a complicated calculus of comfort

eclipse of day worries and heaven’s delights
