The sweet taste of time

The sweet taste of time

The lucidities of love
           voiced in the unending desire
to touch that body of feelings
           that she embodies
to yield to that state of grace
           in her eager eyes
in her outstretched arms
           into which one enters effortlessly
so as to capture the sweet taste
           of time on her lips

Dawn glow of red sky
           fired by the rising sun
that warms the earth
           with its ardent light
drives lovers into
           each others arms
fills the world with passion
           beyond calibration
combustible love that lives
           for itself within itself
that knowing no other
           admits no retraction
