January’s passing
promises more cold- –
fold the dreams away
a summer wardrobe
                                  set aside
winter lingers- -and you
in continual soft sway- –
motions of love in action.

Here I stay
your private oasis
dressed in winter cloak,
my smokey love
forever whispering
proclamations of desire
by your caress
teasing my heart.

I am so much more
than an island
in the essence of you- –
continual lover
that you are- -even
I have a sea inside
frozen in January’s passing.
