A Desire Carved From The Sky


A Desire Carved From The Sky

I write a turquoise sea,
my beloved,
a reeling sea rolling passions,
born in the long held breath of love,
rolling passions
against the rock
of my breaking heart.

I write a silver rain,
my beloved,
a warming rain spilling lessons
born in the fevered dream of love,
spilling lessons
from the soft lips
of the whispered world.

I write the cliff-top
where we eat the wild wind with our hearts.

I write the jungle
where we writhe in sun-serpent shadows.

I write the desert
where we carve desire from the sky.

I write the flame of love,
the pride-blue flame
that drives me to my knees,
that drenches you with adore,
that cries the little agony-prayer,
and scratches another night
from the skin calendar.

And then,
clutching at the wet hair
of tomorrow,
I write my secrets
on the temple of your curved back
with my lips,
until you sleep there,
in that desire
carved from the sky.

– Gregory David Roberts

…gods, a woman, or India?  I know which this makes me miss.


About kateeleigh

I'm not the greatest at this whole social media thing. I like face-to-face interactions. Phone calls, texts, random cups of tea. I work in some of Canada's most remote places, and I'm having a (not-so) secret love affair with my camera, who goes everywhere with me. When I'm not running away to the great outdoors, I like to read, play video games, and find the myriad ways I can annoy my cat. I'm the author and photographer at http://photomemoires.wordpress.com/ and I'm a contributor to Thalassa's Pagan Devotionals over at https://lectiodivinapaganus.wordpress.com/ Welcome to my world. Won't you sit down with a cup of tea and stay a while? View all posts by kateeleigh
