Love and A Fireplace


A flaming fireplace in the heart of winter
With conversation sparks and ebullient banter
A prelude to seasonal fireworks on the coziest of rugs
Sipping a broth of caffeine from two burning mugs
She smiles at me serenely my tantalizing goddess
Gazing at my visage ornate with a tender shyness
Her tranquil smile the midnight sun on a starry night
Her dental stubs the glistening stars that sprinkle light
She softly slithers her right hand on my convivial cheek
And presses against my lips with her sensuous beak
A clasping lock of lips melting my soul amidst her vehement passion
As her lips navigate my visage in her own tempestuous fashion
Her soul a conquistador exploring my corporeal wilderness
With passion as her wheel and desire as her compass
Oh the sweetness of love amidst flaming whispers
As two shadows merge amidst the burning embers
Two bodies stuttering and stammering in the language of love
Embarking on a journey strewn with blessings from above
As snow falls on the placid hills, a new beginning unveils
As two souls discover heaven on earth, the wind for their sails
To navigate the tempestuous waters of marital mirth
As on a mythical night, love detonated in front of a flaming hearth
As a journey of discovery was begun from a blessed harbor
To unravel a shrine of love tectonic in her labor
As two souls cuddled on gazing at the blazing fire
Two smiles perpetuated symbolizing their invested desire

poet Dante Gabriel Rossetti

A little while a little love
The hour yet bears for thee and me
Who have not drawn the veil to see
If still our heaven be lit above.
Thou merely, at the day's last sigh,
