Gravity

The day
gravity stopped
the rain hung around us.
Trees leaned, frozen in the wind.
And the birds paused
mid-singing.
Drenched as we were, you and I
stood still, so close
to a kiss.
And the city was suddenly so quiet.
Until we entered
the stillness, our lips met.
The rain started falling.
The trees swayed and the birds
were singing.

Adrenaline

He is precious, my one and only
adrenaline,
fuel of swift rides
beneath fields upon fields of
midnight stars.

Crown

I have not met a man
who is all at once
a hero, healer, lover, and poet.
Perhaps
he is not these whom I have met
but the eternal man.
My head would say a crownless fool,
a fool for love and all unseen,
but in my heart
he is prince.
