love speak

SUN AND SAND PHOTOGRAPHY

love and the tango

LOVE  
 

You speak of love,

but it is your love that destroys me.

Early on before the seven year itch,

Your every word flooded my soul.

Our world was colored,

like the maple before winter.

Now everything is tinted in hues of blue.

Our trust laid bare like that maple in full winter.

Hope remains to be seen,

If that maple can recover in spring.

TANGO

No longer chained

by cold depression

spirits of nature run

free and wild

through the naked forrest

climbing the limbs of chance

to reap the fruits of passion

and taste the supple flesh

to revel the celstial tango

a rhapsody of day and night
