Lotus Seed Poem: 2

The first day I met you
You were in silence.
Yet sitting near you was enough
To set my body swaying
Like lilacs swooning with wind & rain.
When it was time for me to return to the arctic
I told you of my fear of leaving you.
You took my hands in yours
Looked me in the eye, gently laughing.

On that journey home
Your light burst inside me.
Then all around me, Love
Like a hail of stars
Flared across the night of my existence.
This meteor shower of ecstasy
Went on for months,
The little cabin, my body
Glowed all winter,
Powerless to forget you.
