A SUNSHINE WOMAN, AND OTHER POEMS, APRIL 4, 2023

By Donovan Baldwin


a Sunshine woman

loved by a creature of storm...

never to be one


-----


bring joy to sorrow

forgive all the lonely ones...

for you've been one too


-----


might i love too much

giving more than she might give...

i don't believe so


-----


hand in hand she guides

leads me to her sacred lands...

reveals rituals


-----


Oddly different sensation,

You opening my petals,

Fingers wandering through my fields.

Yet, so pleasant to know

Something about me pleases you.

The way your gaze,

And then your fingers,

And, eventually, I hope,

Your lips,

Explore my fields,

And blossoms,

Excietes me,

Raises my

Expectations,

Reignites old fires,

Which have long become,

Mere embers hidden

In a field of

Dying flowers,

Which now seek

To bloom

Once more.


-----


art may sometimes show

what the lover's mind perceives...

esoteric truths


-----


between two hillocks

poet rests his weary head...

hand on her warm plain


-----


i live without gods

mine departed years ago...

banished for their lies


-----


revealing secrets

watching her dark rose unfold...

sparkling with honey


-----


with all her freedoms

chooses to stay at my side...

free to be herself


ALTERNATE


among all freedoms

she'd gladly stand at my side...

free to be herself


-----


that which passed between

lancelot and guinevere...

noble sins indeed


-----


at work she's the boss

at home they are both equals...

sometimes she lets go


-----


fragrant fantasy

mouth tasting once more her breaths...

kiss we've never had


-----


in my mind and heart

you are unable to sin...

all you do is love


-----


as if in a dream

caught by love's strong gravity...

orbit about you


-----


searched within my words

found hidden a beating heart...

we touched each other


-----
