Star breath

Star breath

Love is not over
           love that comes
with soft touch
           and gentle words
love is not over
           The eyes search
and the hands reach
           and all the senses
are alive in expectation
           Love’s sweet perfume
fills the air
           thrills the heart
is there in the memory
           of what will always be
wholesome love
           that delights
in the pleasure
           of another
The simplicity of love
           defies the convoluted
beauty of roses
           the levity of butterflies
it is the life-breath of stars :
           No — love is not over
