Can I See You?

Late one cold November night,
I sat outside in front of
A bon fire,
And started thinking
Of you.

Can I see your beauty,
Radiant,
Gracefully flowing
In the twisting
Ever-changing palette
Of light?

Can I hear your
Heart call
In the pops,
And murmurs
Of the embers
Birthing their life,
And warmth?

Can I sense,
And smell,
And taste,
The luxury
Of your passion,
In the redness
Of the pulsing energy?

Can I feel you here,
Beside me,
With me,
Now?

The answers are certain.

On this
Late fall evening…
Before this fire,
And all the crystal clear
Heavens…

My life remains
Completely taken.

Everywhere I look,
Everything I sense,
Everything my heart consumes,
Is enrobed
By the thoughts,
And sounds,

And irrepressible beauty
I forever see

In you.
