Blowing in the wind



silent love lingers

on your trembling lips

as you slowly decipher

the storms of the soul

in nurtured desires

and a reverie of love

hides below the surface

of dreams and dither

finding shelter

in the hands of delusion

and the secret of love

from times gone by

now just a whisper

born out of ashes




like the circle of life

it cannot negate

thoughts of

 you and me…


blowing in the wind
