Cairnsmore’s love story
Like lovers who come together
with desperate longing,
tectonic plates collided in orgasms
of crashing waves, turning
world and ocean upside down.
Passions ignited, blood heated
fierce in the veins.
Fires quenched, love cooled,
held fast in an icy grip, blizzards
blind lovers to core-deep truths:
ice moves, smoothes harsh corners;
hearts, toughened, beat stronger.
from Thousands Pass Here Every Day (Indigo Dreams)
