The Kissing Leaves


Near in Spirit yet always apart

Immovable desire, standing afar

Firmly rooted in lifetimes of longing

Painfully forced to witness 

The lovers process

The falling to let go 

The true essence of surrender

Frozen in silent learning

A quiet yearning

The necessary bitter cold

Lays to rest any worry

Out of control

Creates the wanting

Fuels the awakening to being

The ultimate risk


The unfurling into love

The souls heat coursing through veins

Prompting a lovers journey

Into Self

Unfurled wisdom beats the heart of lifetimes

All awaiting summers darkest storm

Violent winds drawing you near

Shaking the branches of my fear

Swaying my foundation over and over

It’s but a delicate dance

For my roots are firm

Knowing the storm will pass 

I relish in the darkness that pushes me closer to you

To finally lean in and kiss your leaves
