Why I Will Never Have a Celibate Heart.

Celibate heart
Celibate heart

“Poetry is just the evidence of life. If your life is burning well, poetry is just the ash.” ~ Leonard Cohen

Far from the cry of eagles and owls

Far from the places where solitude rules
Away from rushing rivers and pine scented forests

I nurture a heart that is forever in love

Far from my lover and his talented hands
Far from his whispers and languidly scribbled poems
Away from the naked admiration in his eyes

I nurture a heart that is forever in love

Far from my tribe and the places they travel
Far from the light of our late evening fire
Away from the wisdom of the elders who ground me

I nurture a heart that is forever in love
