This Beloved Space(For Janice)

Oh love
but newly born

a mere week old
(as time goes)

here in
the cradle of our arms

which we have hardly left
for 3 days now

charmed by its magic

this beloved

face to face
naked & new

body mind soul
those elements of being

unfurling like a banner
to the endless sky


holds dominium
over us

& we
its loyal subjects are

encompassed by our arms
we hold the world

of our love
(sleeping gently now)

we mere mortals
...immortal are.

    You capture love so very well here Donall. It is but a force that we are beholden to. Lovely scribing. HG: -) xx
