Pleasure together

What’s to be said of the angels who bring
messages    a whisper in the ear    a
warning or good tidings      The purest love
I ever knew      the gentlest kiss       her eyes
ablaze with joy    her soft blushed cheeks    her smile
no other word but radiance      Childhood
innocence free of all impediments
belly to belly in the lap of love
How strange to be gone
                                and so sudden   so
soon to be a space adrift within an
infinite space      untouched by words    untouched
by memory    forgotten every
orchid      every rose     and all the days
and nights we took
                       our pleasure together
