To Live Comfortably in Love

October 5, 2015

 

I strive to live comfortably in love,

to love with ease, not live in fear

of loss, to love with inspiration,

not frantic but solid in the present

of companionship.

 

I love to live comfortably in love,

To celebrate that which is delicious

To etch into memory pleasure moments,

the touch of sun on skin and stone

basking at the edge of the pond.

The silky musk of tuberose at dusk

enveloping our conversation

in erotic bouquet, euphoric camaraderie.

 

Coziness of the mundane sparkled with spontaneity.

Gourmet impulses peppered with informal date-nights,

pepperoni pizza, Tabasco sauce, cider.

The privileged occasion of the grilled filet,

béarnaise homemade with tarragon from the garden

prompted by the surprise birthday visit from our daughter.

 

Our walks through the gardens,

me spotting the groundhog in the compost,

you finding the orb weaver in the cosmos,

the hummingbird darting into my field of view

just as I snap the photo of the cardinal flower.

 

The simple complexity of a butterfly

and a bloom.

 

The Perseids Meteor shower

persuading us to stay up all night

bundled in blankets and lounge chairs on the berm

cozy with midnight snickerdoodles and hot coffee,

all of us shouting “Whoaaa!” in unison

as stars streak silver across the sky

as wishes manifest before our eyes

 

to live comfortably in love.
