Becoming one

Naked comfort

raw desire

entwined

two souls cleaved

come together once more.

Beneath summer skies

heat of the sun

basking

glorying in freedom

to just be…..

be wild.

be calm.

be fearless.

be cautious.

Caught in wild embrace

held close

head on chest

solace we have found

listening as our hearts beat

together

one pulse

one reality

two who are finally whole.

Protection

The mighty oak

tall

straight

reaching for sunny skies

never changing

never bending

always a beacon for the storm.

The gentle willlow

sweeping the ground

supple

lissome

bending

as the storm rages on.

I have the strength

the determination of an oak

to withstand pain

to stand tall

facing the storm

as I am pelted with rain and hail.

Twist and turn

accept

know

that despite my strength

I need to bend

like the willow

to protect myself

to keep safe

this heart

that I am holding out to you.
