A Song of Sand and Water

No matter what I do
My mind keeps going back to you

Make me dance in the blaze of that bonfire
Make me twirl, whirl under the light of stars


In the moonshine we flirt
I see that twinkle in your eye

We dive in the sand drawn to each other
Magnetically bound in exertion

Effortlessly you roll on top of me
I can feel the weight of your bones buried

In the cold, gently pressing against mine
The warmth of your flesh, the brush of your skin

The sweet scent of your hair
And we get lost in the moment


Your lips land on mine

Two bonded souls merged as one
I curl up in your embrace

You hold me tight as we listen…
to the crystalline symphony

hummed by the sea embedded
in their tumultuous embrace

In the sand billions of drums rolling
grains floating in the strength of her waves

Droplets crash and dive back
in their immensity


Limbs covered in mineral dust,
our souls whisper through our bodies

gently pressed together, wrapped in peace,
lips smiling in the clearing of dawn

I sing and I sing and I sing
sing along to the tune

that your soft presence instilled in my head
– an ode –
a strong embrace impressed upon my heart.

  2. Wow, that’s beautiful 😍. The title is perfect, it really is a song, your words are all so lyrical. I love it 💖.
    You paint such wonderful pictures. Every line, every word brings more and more happiness through and you leave me grinning and off dreaming by the end. It’s all so perfect, your optimism and pure love of love is intoxicating. And you add those small touches of sensualtiy, the lips and the soft touches of skin, the bodies tumbling, just enough to get a heart racing and imaginations flying. Ahh, there’s too much too love. My mind won’t settle on anything. Why must you torment me so 😅? You’ve managed to torture me by throwing too much love and happiness around 😄

    1. Oh Here comes my favorite Irish friend 😍 how easily you read through me and through my lines. I liked that you find “my pure love of love intoxicating”. I do feel I am in love with the feeling of being in love and since that doesn’t happen I am determined to recreate its magic in poems and stories. I have felt it. I know how it feels, I just have to dig up cherished memories and reinvent them through new circumstances. I am amazed at how malleable our brains are. What they can summon and make you feel. As I wrote and as you read, we were both transported by the power of those wordly signs that we both attribute meaning too. It is mind blowing when you think of it, isn’t it?

    You have such a way with words! Seems like you are able to so accurately illustrate such intimate moments! What a gift you have. It’s not always easy and possible to paint such a picture that your readers can so easily see as if they are seeing the picture right before their eyes, or experiencing the feeling or moment themselves. Magical words 💛

    I know your work is much more advanced than my metaphor, but i took the sand as analogy to how love can be. Like timidly stepping on the sands, only to dig down deep into the cool soft expanse of the tiny grains, that make up love. This one is nice, it covered me in those tiny particles. I took the water as the lapping tide of time.

    1. My words are an invitation for a moment imagined to be reinvented in as many ways as there are sets of eyes who land on their display. I welcome your ideas. Your view of the sand is a beautiful metaphor for love and I can see it in my lines. The sound of the ticking waves adds a musical base to the whole piece. Thank you for your words, Mark 🙂 They transported me back.
