Another poem from my 1st book Carriage Returns


The frozen wastes of my heart
Now feel the heat of your smile
Like a blessed sacrament
Surrounding me like a whirlpool
Gently, long lost feelings surface
Giving me purpose again
I come out of my dream
Blinking at the light
In your eyes
Dazzled and startled
Yet deeply comforted
I stand to face you
Taking you in my arms
We dance around our fire
Turning and swaying
Near the dizzying heat
Wandering closer to it
Trying to avoid the flames
We are drawn into its realm
Consumed yet we dance on
Spirits in the smoke
Crazily twisting
Up into the night
Our dance written in the stars
