TRUE LOVE BLOOMS
When a man loves a woman
Instilled inside him harmony’s greatest plan
Enamored thoughts inside him well
Inviting her into his heart to dwell
Cold icicles first entwine
Then warm flashes flutter up a lover’s spine
True love so sublime
To shining star’s divine.
When a woman loves a man
Beyond inconstant infatuation chameleon
Magical enchantment began
Wafting as spring coral-shells
Weaving wispy spells
Bewitching fragrance wells
Natural affection’s embrace
As fingertips lingering on her man’s face
Making two hearts as one race.
Is a bell still a bell without its chime?
Is a song still a song without its rhyme?
For two cast alone on life’s seas supernally lost
On mortality’s rugged swells tempest tossed
In inherent longing destined to beat as one
Are heart, mind, body, in eddies of life spun
Standing apart as a canvas without paint begun
Drifting without reason mid turmoil’s devastation
Waiting for humanity’s complement to rise
To bring enrichment to weary eyes.
Need, lost and alone in the heart is growing
Incomplete in the great abyss dividing
Wanting, aching, to live cloistered no more
Seeking spiritual bonding you cannot ignore
Longing for a true love fulfilling
Always searching for deeper meaning completing
Feeling abandoned without an oar
So far from shore
Feeling out of step with the world in discontent
Disenfranchised in that hour of disenchantment.
As a diamond without its setting seems morose
True love blooms perfect as a damask rose
Fulfilling one another’s ethereal purpose
Each in the other’s garden growing
True love with starlight blending
Differences in compromise honed
Love continually tied
As an interlocking keystone
Will withstand foul winds by temptress blown.
A heart caresses
In caring happiness
True love eternally sharing
Divergent vibration’s shedding
Two individual lives into one pool flowing
Never departing exaltation’s consciousness stream
Love’s perfumed dream
Love’s purified glue bonding for time everlasting
Different lives in perpetuity bound together
Forever without end, true love is forever.
