We Surrender Honestly to ThisA Poem by Seshat Nidaba
this is a love poem, ordinary as such special things are.
How your lotus eyes summons
The goodness in me, an honesty like
Your cheeks, begging my blood’s
Sudden flowering, I picture your eyes
Like the light of the world
Your summary skin, are like the petals
Where I once laid my racing youth
Your golden face, some miracled heritage
Tangled in your full and towering hair
I want my touch to last forever
I want to hear your voice as if,
To collect the words from your mouth
With my ears and my soul, to know your truth
As completely as anyone ever could
And find your heart in time, sprinkled in flour
And visit your dreams, like some daily bread ritual
I want to be with you, during our nightly travels
Find the purer motion, of your silken singular key
The kind of endless life and joy
Only you could provide me, that moist
Tender swan underwater feeling!
All travels and sorrows have to end
In encircled fire, like a good marriage or
A future land, some prosperity woven
Into the fabric of our future well-being
Pain and work shall all, but sleep now
Let the world propagate its own darkness
Instead we summon the light between us
For we both bow to the pulse, of a higher power.
