ASTONISHED:


Astonished -by full gifts of love
Paralyzed -empty quiet rest at work
Expectant -edging for a handful
Drowning in all the moments
Cascade -too many explanations
Entangled and too much money
Expended but for the moral decay
Holy Spirit set back - drops spill
Upon acts portrayed upstage front
Backlight tannin your flesh in the
Strong tight skin of self-conscience
Tantalizingly tempted to forego
Foreplay though dressed rehearsal
Primes every sinew that tugs on
Erecting strings of cabling strung up
From spillways run with the surge of
Blood red waters from the sweat
Of love's profuseness driven to ballet
In limber flight that flees to the rim
Of height above the rain and wind
Smiling as natural as put upon the
Face -astonished to be saved by
The fulfillment of your embrace.
