Poems

Love Like This

Love
Breaks over the shore of our being
Like a great surf,
Its power primordial.

What did we know of life
Until it swept over us,
Its depths and mysteries,
Wild kisses of the winds,
Moments, becalmed,
When spray stood still,
Sun warmed?

In us,
Elements conspired.
Moon, sun, sand, sea,
Converged,
Tossing two laughing souls
On a holy beach.

Union, communion,
Dreamed, undreamed-
Love like this
Captures the cosmos in its kiss.
