Winter’s River

by , under Passion

The sweetness of your strength
Entices my imaginings
Your icy chilled gaze
Stills my need
Yet fuels my desire
You — feminine, perfection — tower
Above the smoldering ash
That was my confidence
You — goddess, light — dazzle
Blind me in the falling ripples
That were
my sanity

What is woman…
if not mystery?
What is man…
devoid of quest?

In your striking gaze
I am set afire
as feminine wonder
meets masculine blaze

In your subtle scent
I am awakened
As water flows
Beneath the iced layer
Winter’s river
Quiet stratums
of you
