Hurricane II (sonnet)

By dwells

Recalling lips that framed the perfect peach
The taste of her, an ointment for my pain
Contented, I can die upon this beach
Embracing the approach of wind and rain

She freely fed my starved imaginations
Then loved with wildest joy, as was her way
She arched her back, creating generations
Until her eyes demanded that I stay

She left me for a place; I cannot follow
This maelstrom, devoid of any lee
The holy sea forbidding me to swallow
This storm without a name is not for me

Insistent breakers beat against my chest
I wade ashore – assured that we were blessed

    I'm glad you're on the mend dan. Another beauty here. "She freely fed my starved imaginations" I know it well. "She left me for a place I cannot follow" that hits me in the heart. This took me to another place. Brilliance as always my friend.
