A Sensual Encounter

Just off camera, intertwined,
With every sense engaged at once
A wonderland, facility,
Assertion and docility
In one, the movement and the still —
The kiss the touch the mind the will —

But every bit surprising as
There was no setup, no idea:
But sometimes people move in time
And continents become pangaea,
Bursting out of their confines
And lives hemmed in between the lines
That someone set for them to keep —
But now, the shallow and the deep

Are felt and measured, measured, felt,
And that connection, without words,
From couch to carpet and to bed,
A rising chest, a falling head,
A time of presence, fully present,
Unremitting, unrepentant,
Distant sound of rolling thunder,
Wonder, magic,
