another valentine's day poem for my wife

lovely. simply lovely. & still
i look for all that passion
submerged, to rise to the surface
& flood over me, passion

voiced & unvoiced, hands
all aflutter, lips atwitter, bodies
nesting places for our hearts

voiced & unvoiced, words
lingering upon the skin, deepening
images of our desire. this love
erupts into the slumbering world,
this passion the song i sing to you.
