Day 199: If My Heart…

If My Heart…

If my heart were a river I would pour out and cleanse, cascade upon furrowed brow and kiss droplets of hope into cherished vase, filling the memorized grooves with relished joy

If my hands were a tiger I would romp upon you, creep into the caverns of your folds, where flesh hides secrets behind the woven mask of unrest, devouring the enemy of uncertainty

If my voice were a jungle I would swing from vine to vine, wrap you in canopy’s green until weary of delight, then slither and wind round your limbs with hissing desire

If my eyes were a waterfall I would forge into you, pounding with sweetness until with heated breath you collapse into the coolness of my welcoming, unsheltered in naked awareness

If my lips were a butterfly I would burst and fly forth to the nectar, escaping the dark fertile grounds to reach the narrow opening of acceptance, and merge there, face to face with delectable taste

If my body were a mountain I would explode from the fury of expectation, cutting a passageway through for traveler desired, the birthed fragments of rock my testimony of future gifts

If my mind were a raven’s nest I would shelter thoughts of the sun weaved through auburn hair, the gape of diamond neck, the peak of temple, the valley of chest

If my time were an artesian well I would spring forth and seize the last drops of love, and spoon the remnants into a symphony of water, where forever I would swim in the hallowed place of you

  1. Gosh! Your heart I love. Exploring your depth through nature, I want this imagery to never cease. You pour words with vividity, and yet you touch the chord of reality. I would swear upon this, as a spiritual journey.
    Loving you philosophically, dearie Sam. You shall breathe for more years, for you have many things to write. You make this seemingly easy. I’m in love today, satiated I’m.

    1. Wow! Now that’s a comment!
      Thanks so very much. Means a lot, as I know you are a genuine person and insightful.
      This actually poured out of me, almost in the entire form, earlier today. I saw the images and just wrote what I “heard.” So, indeed, some sort of spiritual connection.
      I am so glee-filled you enjoyed. I really felt this one myself.
      I love the thought of living longer to write… I do write to breathe. Your words just tickled me. lol.
      I’ll come see your lovely blog, now.
      And thanks again. Very much appreciated.

      1. and that is sweetly continued with your soulful words….You do breathe life in pictures of life, and that is why you become playful when you write things like this.
        Thank you, Sam.

  2. Oh Oh Oh Oh…. this is just a knock-out Sam. It is drenched with passion and your style of expression flows and flows. It’s like you could go on forever and the reader would keep reading and follow each word to the next with bated breath… till the end – and I truly loved your ending…
    “If my time were an artesian well I would spring forth and seize the last drops of love, and spoon the remnants into a symphony of water, where forever I would swim in the hallowed place of you”
