Higher Love (Collaboration)

Posted on


A collaboration between me and the ultra talented Kim from the blog Peace, Love and Patchouli

As her blog name suggests, she spreads peace and love wherever her mind travels. If you haven’t already joined the journey she has embarked on, I suggest you do; you wont be disappointed 🙂 . You can find the link to her blog here


Slipping through,

Behind me I sense you

A daily taunt, a tease…

As the tides rise at your command

I watch smitten…


When today decides to marry

A new day, a dark veil descends

I relay, rather, reflect

The best you choose to give

The light, from your form

Brings me to their attention

Hides my darkness

As I orbit around their home…


I wake from a moving slumber

Feeling your cold cool loveliness caress

As you cover me like a glowing glove

My blush rises from behind

Radiating the warmth

As I burn through this space

Glancing as I watch you

Proud and silently slipping away….


… Slipping away,

Or so it seems, to them

For departing, means arriving

On the opposite side

Of this terrestrial plain

Time consciousness on infinity,

Never missing a beat, consistently

Gracing us with that light you,

In the simplest form,

Shine persistently.


I wait for you

Like a reflection in the mirror

I know you are there

Essences of my favorite shades,

We work the line

Invisible and steady

Knowing the cord reaches unseen

I am tied to you

And you to me
