Love’s Same Gift

Same gift every year

But you never mind

My heart wrapped in

Pale silk ribbons, lace

~

You untie my kisses

In between soft whispers

Tease that Time’s slowed

Us down…candle flickers

Flame-Laced Sayonara

time-1809302_640

We love as though

Forever was goblet’s drink

Fine sip at leisure

…Or our last time

~

Always gently intense, deliberate

Whatever you do…time

Spent pensively pondering, painting

Rowing us to ecstasy

~

Easy to forget hourglass

Spilling tropical sands silvered

We’re old in love

Savoring flame-laced season’s sayonara
