Holding On To Serendipity

The flowers and birds seemed drawn to her
She looked so pure and lovely

Twirling with happiness
In the meadows
Free under the blue sky
Sunlight kissing her face

She was hugging the wind
Arms open wide
Taking in the perfume of wild daisies and poppies
Blooming in profusion around her

I stood watching her face overflow with deep content
I’d planned our surprise date with nature
Knowing full well she’d be thrilled

This kind and strong woman
Had chosen to give her fierce loyalty and love to me

All I want is to cherish and protect her
Keep her close inside my arms

She brought out the best in me
Made me want to overcome my darkness
She was my light

Her eyes sparkling
Hair dancing in the sunshine
She walked towards me

My heart leapt
I fervently wished I was the gentle breeze
That caressed and touched her face forever


The Meet – Innocent Jubilation

Her face glowed alight

A thousand dazzling suns radiant

So pure was her joy!

At the sheer glimpse of his heady smile

After an eternity afar

He was her universe…

The sound of his voice

Intoxicated her once more

Head giddy, knees wobbly

Eyes welling up with raw emotion

Heck “butterflies in the tummy”, a gigantic understatement

She took a step forward

Into the realm of his presence

So she could breathe once again

The magnificent air that was lucky enough to be respired by him

So immense and utter had been her yearning

Crossing oceans, she had come

To acquire her best friend

Mercy! Hell don’t keep her apart from him anymore

That being, that soul, her life’s breath he was

As he walked about, talked, smiled and laughed

Her heart filled up with love like an over-sized balloon, bigger and bigger

It threatened to explode with her tender affection for him

Can she tell him all?

Would he accept her into his open arms?

For none could love him more, he knew

Would she feel the warmth of his closeness once more?

Lose herself in the safety of his embrace

The Ocean and the Seashore – A Love Beyond Time

Ours is a tale of love as old as creation.

For you are the Ocean and I am the Seashore.

The music of our joy, our song besprinkled,

In seashells across the earth.

The waves and the sand merge together for eternity. The Ocean returns after a weary trip round the world into the arms of his beloved Seashore, who waits earnestly and patiently for him to come home to her. Their union brings happiness to their human children as they frolic and play in the dancing, lapping, majestic waves and bury their feet in the warm, healing sands.

The Ocean and the Seashore are inseparable. Without boundaries, they blend and mix, entwine in such harmony that it is unfathomable where the Ocean ends and the Seashore begins.

Thus are you and I joined together forever. Sure as the sun that bounces golden above the waters.

Sacred is the place where I met you and you professed that Your love for me “is as vast as the sea, the ocean that spans this earth” and I was overcome and conceded, “You have me that loves you forever”. I saw your face light up in the most beautiful smile of thrill and contentment that my heart melted.

I rest my head on your shoulder, sitting beside you in the soft sand and you hold my fingers in yours. As I watch the blue waters stretch out to the sun and the endless sky change colours, I can’t but feel at peace with nature and with myself.
