wandering hands

from Albatross - Tuesday, August 06, 2002

Something that has nothing to do with the family.

These hands long to roam
Like a vagabond,
Travel these gentle hills,
These valleys,
This temple,
Your body.
What delights,
What fields to run through
What rivers to ford
What heights to scale
And sights,
Few eyes
Few men
Have seen before.
And what bouquets
Await my senses
What seductions
Await my pallet
My feet long to roam,
These bazaars of yours
Haggling with vendors
Of spice
Of trinkets.

Oh... this is desire,
To brush my hands
Across these idols of yours,
to run my hands
across these sacred curves,
that drag me to my knees.

This is an impressive poem. Reminds me of Neruda's poetry and Li Young Lee's 'Hair'. Achingly succulent! :-)

What happened to the last bit of this poem? And please ask me why I think I know your poem when we've never met!

Is there man righ enough to offer sacrifices worthy of you?
sheets gently enough to cover you,
cushions soft enough to couch you,
water pure enough to touch your lips?
And so, this humble wanderer begs right to pass
to walk these trails
these paths
this world of yours.(reply to this comment

Wow. Nice imagery there. “These bazaars of yours… to brush my hands across these idols of yours… these sacred curves, that drag me to my knees.”

That about sums it up, doesn’t?

Once again, Alby Baby ..........
I love it when poetry stirs something inside me.
