ALL THIS LOVE MAKING–I’M HUNGRY!

Do women as well as men,

Get hungry for food when…

Lovemaking is through

(Not snoring’s a clue),

That a dinner’s around the bend?

Apples and raisins and figs,*

Fruit that a lover digs…

Lovers produce

Plenty of juice,,

Song of Solomon readily admits

Alas, most who turn old and grey,

Intensity fades away…

Abiding love

Is of stiffer stuff

Than young lovers in play!

–Jonathan Caswell

*Song of Solomon 2:4-5

WHEN A LOVE ENDS…

Stupidly when love ends,

Some try to remain friends…

I was a boob

This came to,

On this relationship lie I’d defend.

My ex wanted to move on,

They preferred that I were gone…!

As stubborn clutter

I was no better,

Stabbed in the heart before long!

Did this for a number of years,

Leading unnecessary tears…

A total break

For mercy’s sake,

Remembering that God’s wisdom steers!

BRIGHT BURNING EMBERS

Some of us only remember

Those white hot burning embers…

Of romances past

We hoped would last,

And long-term love would render.

This white-hot doesn’t last long,

Ecstasy intense moves on…

If left behind

It tickles the mind,

Until those effects are gone!

Bring those feelings back,

To the present will always lack…

Intimacies raw

One felt and saw,

Arer someone else’s stack!

Corazón

SO INTIMATE AND RICHLY ADORNED—AH, LOVE THAT IS DEEPLY FELT!

The Lonely Author

Corazón is heart in Spanish. It is also used to address one’s beloved as “my heart” or the equivalent of our “sweetheart.”

Marisposa means butterfly. But it is the name of the Cuban national flower (pictured below).

Corazón

.

Earrings swaying like maracas
As the scent of Mariposas filled the air
My Corazón crooned so lovingly
A Caribbean breeze of lyrics
Blew through my yearning hairs

She ignited a bonfire of passion
With her Spanish lullaby
A hymn that came from up above
As angelic goose bumps danced on my skin
Sashaying to her tender love

My heart were her bongos
Intoxicating words drenched with nourishment
Are more vital than the air I breathe
Corazón whispered loving words to the world
As she serenaded me with her poetry.

Today’s post was inspired by Nandita’s live recitation of Pablo Neruda poetry in Spanish and English. (It was the first time…

FORGIVENESS IN ABSENTIA

See John 9:31

People very frustrating

On us are very grating…

Bossy kinds

Who speak their minds,

Their self-importance inflating!

innuendo and manipulation

Their primary occupations…

Higher than thou

Surely you bow,

to their superior station!

How can one forgive,

The obnoxious who live…

On your block

While tempted to knock

Go native–making it harder there to live?

With Jesus Christ,

Remembering His sacrifice…

He commands–forgive–

So you might live,

Your prayers being heard–will suffice.

Even when the antagonist won’t budge,

You will forgive, not begrudge…

For Christ died for you

And them too,

Your obedience may yet be their judge!

As for feelings–they last a while–

Pray that God may allow you a smile…

Bless–don not curse

‘Though they act the worst,

God will pay for righteousness at their denial!
