The Karma Behind Your Smile

the karma

behind your smile

speaks with endearment

to your loving kindness . . .


the safe harbor

of your friendship . . .

one so dear

as to fill my heart

with wondrous joy . . .

is the haven I have longed for

though never knowing why . . .


cajole me


by the light of a half moon

that I might rest

in the comfort of your arms


in the fullness of peace
