I wish for your glorious garden to wither,
your tree to shudder and  fall in the forest.
Your stars to hang limp upon the heavens,
and your moon to turn to a sulphurous pond!

I wish for your humour to sour in your mouth!
And your thoughts to dwell in incoherent confusion,
your keen logic to become a pile of rubble,
and for happiness to elude you constantly.
Hell hath no fury...

I remember nights
Close with you.

Safe in your arms,
Your presence filling
My consciousness.

Your dreams running
On the edges of mine,
Filled with riches
And contentment.

Golden pastels painted
In sweet colours, on the face
Of night as it slowly fades.

Eons and eons have passed
As swiftly as swirling mists
Surround the ancient woods.

You are
My Summer solstice.
My Winter’s
Warmth and comfort
In twilight,
At the close of day.

Far-off places
Call and beckon,
Through yearnings
In your voice.
Your eyes glow
Of midnight embers,
Your dreams
Of spangled nights.

Show me by day
The weaver’s nest.

The night’s embrace,
Beneath Orion’s belt.

I have longed for you.

As the breeze strokes
The wide Savannah,
My  violent yearnings
Like a Summer storm,
A burnished forest
In a mellow Fall,
A soaring eagle
On a sturdy wing.

So, have I longed for you!

The sun is put to bed
So that we can see,
Through the opened window
Into eternity.
Lynn Greyling Jan 2015
The stars reflect
Balmy nights
In the eyes
Of the lush
Summer plum
In your arms.
