Love is Sacred

Love is Sacred
When I am with you
we burn together
until there is but fine dust
like cedar's yellow-green pollen

Settling on leaves, rocks
and the chairs outside
until rain returns claiming the dust
forming lives from love's mud

Love has its way with us
knowing just what to do
dancing and intertwining
We moan and weep

Laughing and crying
in joy and sorrow
feeling our way
through Love's beauty

Here we are together
not knowing for how long
making plans, sharing intimacies,
going round and round

While trees keep watch
rooting and growing
flowering and seeding
praying love's prayers
