I have limned myriad longings
with words. Not all are romance
but they share a landscape
the reader can recognize:
imagine a postcard island
or a sun-struck beach where
waves brush the shore, aching
for touch that might be metaphor.
Limerence as Venn diagram
connections twisted into a Celtic knot
interweaving in the center
the eye of the storm
the calm where we hide
shy winter orchids to keep them
safe from bruising wind and surf
though I—this timid creature—
would be reckless and court disaster
on the coastline of strangers.
