First Utterance

100 words for November.


Creating light, love’s knowing fashion makes
Some man, some woman reach in time in place
To touch, their wordless press to hold each one.
To find in other’s capture, purify,
Make sensual semblance mystic as of old
Before they pass beyond the mythic plot
Then ever gone. To language moved among
A throng of hopes, impressed in mind as sea
Vast tossing reaches beckoning shore's embrace,
Two souls, diaphanous in sense more shape-
Consistent than of ghosts, two hearts race so.
Desiring tongues, thoughts shaping stuttered speech,
Attempt a steadied meeting peace between
Their heartbeats pulsed, their chanted minds composed.
