Love Poem: Explorations

Written by: L'Nass Shango


And God said let there be light
 And butterflies appeared
 Sensuous as a moon
 On a fragranted night
 With jasmines in her hair.

 And God said in the beginning was the word
 And the cataract thundered
 In a kaleidoscope of white
 Wings like water sundered
 Dancing on the belly of a stream
 Rolling on the breast of the sea.

 And God said let there be love
 And moon came naked through the curtain
 And poet sighed
 Willing but still uncertain
 Where she will go when day has come
 And passions are mute as a stickless drum.
