Bound By Your Love


Cheryl Williams


The dew of your skin
is upon me,
and the flowers in my hair
come from your sweet offerings.
The blush of my skin
is warm from your touch,
and there is nothing
that I want for now.
You call to me
with sweet rhythms
that spring forth
from primal urgings.
I am bound
by water, earth and sky...
caught up in this moment,
captured by the reckless sigh
of your love.
