lovers gaze


My heart delights in my lover’s gaze
I am secure in his arms’ embrace

The mountain peaks are kissed by the sun’s fickle rays
On every river the flirtatious wind sashays
My desires cross the bounds of space

The clouds and the tree tops are twined in embrace
Creating patterns of light as the foliage sways
Refreshing are these sheltered ways

This freedom makes heart beat at a frenzied pace
It empathizes with the beauty that nature displays
Love’s colored canopy is ablaze.
