  • I still have the first letter that you wrote to me.
    I carry it with me like a garden in my pocket.
    “If you come to me at this moment
    your minutes will become hours
    you hours will become days
    and your days will become a lifetime.”
    I am never sure if I am reading the letter, or if the letter is reading me.
    Gregory Colbert, in Ashes and Snow, Letter #74
    Beloved, you complete me:
    the colors of your great Soul
    speak of sunsets, quiet lakes
    that mirror the moon.

    Beloved, I feel so at home
    when I am near you,
    when I see myself
    reflected in your loving eyes.

    Beloved, you are my courage,
    you are the shield
    that protects me
    from the dangers of this world

    Beloved, your sweet words
    are like angel songs
    circling around me
    like wild birds at dawn.

    Beloved, please understand:
    you have taken up residence
    like poppies, like lupine,
    in the field of my soul.

    Beloved, even as I write,
    I feel you breathing your heart
    into my heart, giving me life -
    immaculate conception.

    Beloved, we are together now,
    as ink bonds with paper
    as wind moves in the trees.
    You are my song, my field, my heart.

    Most Divine Beloved:
    Yours are the eyes
    that look back at me, smiling,
    when I look into
    the jeweled mirror of my life.
