From Above

Love’s breath beckons me forward

But fear of cloud’s rain and storm’s gain

Holds my heart ransom.

Life quivers

Death considers

But nothing can explain what jitters inside me.

From ropes of despair to angelic hair,

From heart’s bleeding to joy exceeding

Is what one man saw.

A captive of love’s entanglement – I am.

I used to surrender to the naked sirens of seduction

Who bathe in the wake of maritime war.

But now I’ve come to claim

What’s beautifully from above–you, Sari, my love.
