"We shall not cease from exploration and the end of all our exploring will be to arrive where we started
and know the place for the first time." (T S Eliot)
"A dark and chanted verse is what I am." (

FORGET

Sometimes I forget
It was your unique beauty
That first attracted me.
Your face flickering
Like a screen
Of abundant expressions -
One moment a clown
And the next a coquet -
Eyes blazing but restful
With the lustre of stars
In the warm sky
Of a hot summer night,
Your mouth the mount
Of a million smiles,
And your hair black and silky,
Begging to be touched.
I remember your body coiled,
Curved as if you were wired
For every knowable pleasure.
How I longed to caress you
And feel the heat of you,
Brown and burning bright.
But now I know your heart
And I can explore your mind,
So I am forever aroused
By the splendours of your soul.
