Hills and Heather

My heart belongs

across the Atlantic

My desire to return

a yearning deep in

my soul

To walk the

Hills and Heather

Retracing the steps

my ancestors made

To see purple and

thistle

And…

Feel the weight

of my plaid

Humanity

Need…
Each of us is unique
Not really knowing what is 
Best for you…
Best for me…
 
Desire…
A totally different
human fragility
Again…
Each unique…
Different…
Depths…
Lengths…
 
Need…
Desire…
Each makes us
who we are
Keeping us who
we need to be

Mourning

Oh…
The pain…
The loss…
Today I weep
 
Today…
I mourn what
I desire 
Yet…
can never have
 
Today…
I rejoice in
what I had
Lost…
And will never
have again
 
Win or lose
there is pain
Mourning…

Their Language

Their Language

They come together
When time permits
No words needed
their bodies know the
ancient language…
rhythms…
wants…
needs…
desires…
 
Without a word
their time begins
Familiar touches…
Gentle sighs…
Bodies shift…
Adjust to each other
A perfect fit…
A perfect joining…
 
Gentle become
more demanding
breathing quickens
passion rises
 
Release over and over and
over again
Each is what the
other needs
Taking what
can be given…
received…
 
Meeting when planets
align and stars fall
Satisfaction…
Until…

Just Passing Through

Just Passing Through — 

was written a few days ago before I read the following poem written by the incredibly poet and singer/song writer Leonard Cohen.  I found the following poem only this morning when I picked up Leonard Cohen’s Poems and Songs and felt the connection of his poem to mine.  They are not remotely alike, yet have a similar feel.  ‘As the Mist Leaves No Scar’ was a new poem to me and I was surprised at the collective thought in this poem and mine.   I hope you enjoy both since this is an unusual posting style for me.

As The Mist Leaves No Scar

By Leonard Cohen
 
As the mist leaves no scar
On the dark green hill,
So my body leaves o scar
On you, nor ever will.
 
When wind and hawk’s encounter,
What remains to keep?
So you and I encounter,
The turn, then fall to sleep.
 
As many nights endure
Without a moon or star,
So will we endure
When one is gone and far
 
 
From page 22, Leonard Cohen:  Poems and Songs

Just Passing Through

You came to me
Unexpectedly…
A Surprise…
Yes, but…
Not really
This is just
your style
 
Your voice filled with
lust…
desire…
expectation…
anticipation…
 
And…
A question on your tongue…
Leaving the decision
once again…
to me.
 
A friend with
Benefits whose
company I do
Enjoy…
Neither of us
owing anything to
the other
except…
mutual pleasure
And
respect
 
One night of 
passion…
pleasure…
and pain…
You are gone…
Until the next
time you are 
Just Passing Through
