Appetite

With everything offered
Anticipation
From the fountain of desire
My heart longs
For the promised dream.

Taste
The sweet cup
Of forgiveness
Over possibility
As I savor the rich nectar.

Every mouthful, breaking crumb
Every drop from your chalice
Every sip.

Open to me
Anticipation
Is your temple
Satisfying my appetite
By your touch.

  1. Love creates its own appetite, often a bit blindly and that may be a good thing, especially when the one loved, loves back. Like the way you wove the metaphor you chose.

  6. Alan,

    I saw several possibilities within your profound words...A superb romantic theme; or a most serious religious tone...
    Both are most powerfully represented.
