Beyond All This

Neither magic wand
nor wonder gel
can surpass all joy
that comes freshly
in gardenia wafts

on a full-moon night
when shadows are
your only friends
and distant falling stars
a guide

to the harmony you feel
for there in self-embrace
no longer the subject of her stare

power passion and poetry
consume each and every word
that blooms in
potential perpetuity.
