My Love Awaits

My Love Awaits (Form: Parallelogram de Crystalline)

Her dark eyes
beckoned to me like an
unlit cave needing exploration.
lips accented by tongue’s
moisture were an opening flower.
The hills and
valleys of my homeland
wished their contours as pleasing as hers.
They whisper
on the evening breezes,
“Chase not follies; what awaits is life.”
