Passion

We so often think of passion

as it applies to love of another

or our thoughts of what of

the love of another should be

But …

Honest…

True…

Real…

Burning…

Passion shows as a light

from the soul

Eyes sparkling and

a shining face when

 

someone talks about

their life …

their work …

their passion …

Be it rock climbing

or composing the next

symphony …

There is no difference

in the look and feel of

passion a person has

about the importance

of their life …

And …

Their life’s work …

Passion …

Devil Woman

I was too young to be

involved in the BEAT

Generation … missed

that group completely

until deep adulthood

But …

I identified with them

and their poetry mostly

And…

Hippies …

Feminists …

Baby Boomers …

and yes …

Millennials at my

now advanced age

 

I found that age

doesn’t matter if you

have passion about

life … about any and

everything really

I want to be like my

friend Hazel when I am

in my 90s as she is now

and make the Devil very very afraid!

Autumn Leaves

Autumn Leaves

We met in mid Summer
Fiery July…
Our passion matching
the heat of a blazing sun
 
Late starlight walks…
Moonlight meetings…
We fell hard…
fast…
Never willing to be apart
needing the touch…
to talk…
to be…
 
Much too soon our 
Time would be over…
spent…
 
For me…
Time was waning
with the days of 
Summer…
 
Not being able to
let go gracefully
I left in September
telling you to 
Remember me when
the season turned
 
By then
For me…
all left would be
the dust of fiery 
colored leaves
of Autumn…

The Right Love

The Right Love

I spent my life
searching for that
right person…
The one who could match
my fire…
my passion…
my drive…
 
Wasted years thinking…
is that all there is?
 
Hoped it would be
possible to find a match
But…
in the end …
no one even close 
to my
wants…
needs…
fire…
 
Until you…
then I knew the
meaning of
“the right kind of love”*
that compatibility
meeting me equally
in —
passion…
sensuality…
sexuality…
need…
desire…
 
The One who completed me
the one I could give…
“a piece of my life!”*

Just Passing Through

Leave a comment

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

Old Ideas…

Old ideas…

An old love

in a new light

We both have

grown and changed

during the lost years

evolved in the language of…

lust…

passion…

sensuality…

dare I say…

Love?

An awareness of the other

taking us to new heights…

exploration…

fulfillment…
