Cattle graze peacefully in the green fields.

Their lowing murmur, pleasure to the master’s ears

As he walks on the other side of the farm lands

In his left arm he carries a burly bag of grain attached to his person

By ropes lashed securely together

The neck of the sack is wide for better reach

He sprays seeds by the handful into the freshly plowed loam

On his head is a wide brim hat, brown, old and dusty with repeated use.

In the early morning sunshine

The sun alights on his figure

Rendering him almost an otherworldly being

The connection with the land is apparent as he farms

In the traditional vein of his forefathers

His love for the earth is palpable, unmistakable and dignified even.

In triumph I

Surrender to love completely

Broken I submitted, now reborn

Like a hibiscus flower wilting in the heat of the sun

Only to recover in the cool of a rain shower replete

I sing a love song

My siren call echoes like sound ricocheting around and around

The cave like prison of existence

Of day and night fading into twilight

Like light pouring through a skylight

I sing a love song

Of taste and textures sublime

Sweet lyrics and rhyme

Scaling lofty heights of feeling

Searing deep inside melting

Colliding with space and time

I sing a love song

Ethereal beauty eclipsing solidity and substance

Love channels undulating like waves upon the sea

Carefree tendrils of  spray like foam

Resembling ribbons of white lace

Playing etch a sketch upon the molecules and atoms of a heart beating

Totally hopelessly wondrously in love

Will you ask? Perhaps I will answer

Now I sing a song of love

My treble a high octave

Of love, my heart, my only one,

In your arms I’d truly be home where I belong

Mi Corazon.
