On Meeting Her Again

Desire manifests
and the heart longs again
The Universe delivers
A sense of expectation develops

At first sight
the heart misses a beat
the blood courses
the breath becomes shallow

I see her
with a sense of elation
The passage of time now a thing of the past
The eyes take her in
And in that instant
I rush forward
Dip one toe in
Run my fingers through her waters
A certain warmth in the cool air
Exhilaration envelopes

Then there’s calm
As balance permeates my body
Decompression and harmony
In her brisk flow is my placidity

Shiva has met Shakti
A son, his mother
A lover, his love
A poet, his muse
