Slate Blue Gaze

 Your pensive slate blue gaze

Traveled on forever…

To where, I never knew;

Thoughts moving like

Wide mystic river, or

Ticking time’s ancient clock.

Your posture, relaxed cobra,

Sent vibrations through

Tropical air, sands—

From a distance, I traced

Lines of your cheek bones,

Lips’ perfect curve,

Squared tension in your jaw—

Breathed your voice

Whenever I heard it,

Because my love was a lifetime.

I’ve never seen anything,

Before or since…

Quite like you.
