Poetry: Love Lock


I

I have a poem
I will not throw away
by accident
or on purpose:

The morning light
cuts through the trees
waking the birds
to their song

Leaves stretch
for the sun,
fish jump at
the dragonfly,
deer’s in the meadow
nuzzle at the grass


II
How far will you
go for love

Before you accept it
must you test it?
Before you cradle it
must you birth it?
Before you kiss it
must you grasp it?

Mind to mind
Arms in arms
Lips to lips

Love:
Agreement
Contentment
Accomplishment

Over mind
Over body
Over life
