Laughing Joy

Joy is not

out there

waiting

it comes

after

a good

laugh

Lafi The Courtesan

Lafi Lafi
Why did you leave me
Your soft touch
Brought me nearer
Than ever to
Eternity
Now I fade
To my sweet Death
Your ruined name
Bringing you close
Your forbidden touch
The sweetness of your breath
The joy of our laughter
The tenderness of our
Decadent tears
The Blue nights with doves
Always chasing one another
Across time I will seek
I shall never die
If I can but find again
Your sweet embrace
That warm honey filling my ear
I see you on the shore
Wait for me there
Dreaming your blue dreams

Dedicated to Rumi
With eternal gratitude
For helping me to find my self
Your sweet words
fill my soul
