Rediscovering You

My heart is of the deepest fuchsia

It carries you – abundant, full

Homing like a pigeon

Upon that which is a ray of light –

God-soul, God-thought, always

 

You are the warmth in all corners

The staircase and twisted peak,

And you climb downwards towards

The earth’s green lap which is also you

Encircling my heart, which holds you

 

Recollections

Those were the days of…

Wisteria

Blue cotton jumpers

Naked-below-the-waist divinity

5a.m. cheesecake

Endless cups of tea

Tears and laughter

Badger rucksacks

Tattered daffodils

Stones and seashells

Hedgehog ice cream

Bumblebee no.7

Rubenstein (and/or Vimtenstein)

Dreadlocks in nipple piercings

Naked tea butlers

‘Cheers’ing grapes

10-hour phonecalls

Camellia Japonica

Silent phone kisses

Hair and so much of it!

Sweets on the thigh

Duvet warfare

Sleepless nights

First meetings

Warrior marks

Near misses

Woollen hats

Cards and letters

The state of the world

Luminescent eyes

Spontaneous innocence

Nibbled-on beards and snuffled-at ears

Love hearts and jelly beans

Canal boat epiphanies

Happily-tangled limbs

Underwear snack breaks

Mothers and Fathers

Uphill climbs

Tenacity and trepidation

Awe

Wonder

Horror

Love.

“So much love”

 

 

Conditions

If you came to me

Would I know you then?

Are we changed

By all our losses?

Or does the heart cry out

Inaudible to its other?

 

If you were here with me

Would I see you still?

Do we have other ways

Of seeing, finding, knowing?

Or does the invisible wrap us

Into plans cemented but vague?

Vague but true?

Vague but vague.

Are we right, or wrong, in all our doings?

 

 

 

 

When the light shines on you

When the light shines on you

And the dew has gilded

The corners of your smile

Then smoothness abounds

 

Echoing peace throughout

Timelines of hope

Upon the good green earth

Rivers reach their fine fingers

Into the sky of God

 

Searching, aiming, finding truths

Discarded amongst the pine cones

Of psyche and suffering

 

All of this happens, softly,

When the light shines only upon you
