Before The Void

Intimacy like reverence
roots in metaphor
Soul Heart Mind
Holiness Deep
That whereof we cannot speak
we must pass over
in the silence of a love
that needs no words
Tender sight touch thought
connected as one
before the void
Hold me
Know my mind
Touch my heart
See my soul
and in this holy trust
gather me as the corn
embraces the the giving sun
deep inside
where life in love
and love in life
is born

Agree with Adele; a strong element of Native American, I suspect, and all the better for it.

Wowser, Zettel!

This is profound, sensual, subtle, erotic. Strong writing indeed of which you can be proud.

Send it out yet?

Do so!

Hi Z,

The theme of deeper, mysterious roots of intimacy/love was strong through this...touching.
Yes, the corn reference seemed to bring in an Indian theme..but then reverence seems more western... so defies being tied to one spirit..

the ending had the feel of a shakespeare sonnet..deliberate?

Sorry for the delay in responding to comments - I have been 'microsofted' i.e screwed for no reason and have for the moment lost access.

So glad you all liked this. Some poems are more personal than others and it is especially satisfying when the those reach people.

There is a sharing that is rewarding.

Thanks again all.
