It’s Not Enough…

Amber arrows,
Sun’s archer aiming,
Striking new day’s target,
Piercing, vanquishing,
My lingering vapors of darkness,

It’s not enough.

Hummingbird’s fantastical flurry,
Beats pulsing more than life,
Blending strident, verdant, iridescent beauty,
Levitating above the routine,
Reminding me that magic is real,

It’s not enough.

Summer storm’s slate blue,
Relinquishing temporal anguish,
Heaven’s tears shed,
Nourishing the omnipotent circle of life,
Painting steely strength,
My eyes consuming,
Longing for the rich palette of sunset,

It’s not enough…

It’s not enough to breathe in our crossed paths.

It’s not enough to graze the silk of your skin,
Whispering moisture, foretelling a future.

It’s not enough to share a moment,
Surrender every ounce of my spirit to you…


Not enough.

My love,

Only forever…

Is enough.
