It sits out there demanding attention
Like the ghost of Christmas to come, showing me visions of dread
All my thoughts displayed on a Vaudeville stage for the amusement of others
A tug of war, it pulls itself further out, taking me with it
The seductive Mistress of fear and desire knows all
I pull back. No ! I won’t go with you!
This wine and cheese taste good !
The Sun is shining, the flowers in bloom
Trees, their branches stretched up to the heavens
Receive the energy for life, no questions of tomorrow
Your love and touch ground me to today, all my questions calmed
Today you are with me, tomorrow you will be with me…
By Dante, dedicated to my love Daevina.

My darling girl, my love Divine
In dreams of passionate embrace
Your lips so sweet like Riesling wine
Forever mine, your love to taste
My love Daevina, Happy Birthday, Happy Valentine’s day.
Painting by Marc Chagall: Birthday
With you, Precious Love
My heart stays grounded in the sky
My feet skip across bright stars and heavy clouds with equal confidence
In pirouettes, betwixt fixed masses and stagnate bodies, my heart twirls always toward yours
The effortless pull of love in your direction fascinates me
as I float along side the leaves of maple, beach and oak trees
on the back of a sweet serenade and into your loving arms.
My hands reach upward to your smile, as it fills my sky
and gently exudes the breath of life to all of our dreams
The forces of love, music and nature live in you
And fortify us, eternally
Happy Valentine’s Day My Love

You live with me my love?
No screen between our eyes and finger tips?
No apple through the window to my heart?
No sky to cross to hold you in my arms?
No time to pass to kiss your lips again?
You live with me my love !
Dedicated to my love: Daevina
