Afterglow

Alone in the afterglow
lying here
in our memories

Reminiscing
how it felt to be
an inspiration
for your creative fingertips
how I melted
like soft clay
in the hands
of a dedicated sculptor
as you made me
your secret masterpiece
and yours alone
I still am
in the afterglow
of our love

Reminiscing
how it felt to unfold you
with my love
one layer at a time
how my hopeful lips stole your breath
and made it ours
in the kiss of truths and expectations

and still tonight
I breathe our love
when I escape to the place
where yesterday’s spark
still flames
where unwritten poems
Sensuously moan
where you stay
with me
unforgettable
in the afterglow

First Step

“The future belongs to those
Who believe
In the beauty
Of their dreams.”
Eleanor Roosevelt

“Twenty years from now
You will be more disappointed
By the things that you didn’t do
Than by the ones you did do.
So throw off the bowlines.
Sail away from the safe harbor.
Catch the trade winds in your sails.
Explore. Dream. Discover.”
Mark Twain

Today is a good day to take the first step! There is an untraveled path ahead of me. I don’t know where it takes me, but I can’t wait to explore and leave some poetic footprints behind. You are very welcome to join me on my journey.
