A Tangle Of Nimbus Emotions (A 15-Poet(ess) Collaboration)

Love is love
When the blood
Dances to your heart
Frolicking flippantly
With my tender emotions
Right from the start

My love is a target
Lined up in crosshairs
Goalposts ever moving
Nimbus-emotions brooding
Catching me unawares
We speak a foreign language
Only we understand
Vulnerable feelings
handed over with trust
Remembered dalliances
Unquenchably combust
With allure and healing

Love is the danger of the unknown
Or the warm soft pillow
We rest our heads on at night
Love is the tender touch
Erasing life’s bitter tears
And the kiss that forever sears
Love is fluid motion
Waves ever tumbling
Toward passion’s shore
Swirling sensibilities
That beckon for more

Together, we set out
Our sailboat follows the wind
Love is a tangle
Of nothing simple
And still often
We write our love
On each-other’s hearts
Not caring if the word is misspelled
Yet, clinging to the reaction
We’ve all sought to receive
Lover’s voyage, lives and breathes
