Invitation

Come
Walk with me
Where wildflowers bloom

Lie beside me
Beneath the irresistible sky
Point out
The constellations
You wish to fly to
I will take you there

The star chart is printed
On your skin
I will trace
My fingertips
Intimately
Across the beauty
I read like braille

Pausing

At the loveliest places
In order to forget
The world
But never you

Love,
Until the wildflowers
Begin to wither
In summer’s farewell

Come
Walk with me
Where all our journeys end

  1. Bless your sense of intimacy and overflowing heart, the beauty that flows from your heart as naturally as the sun gives light.

    To have walked that road is to have become that source where all begin and end, from whence all overflow.

    Noora, what a delicious image this is,’ the irresistible sky’
    and then tracing your fingertips across the star chart….
    and that could we all spend an infinite time with our lovers.
