Passion’s Desire--By Maurice J. Reynolds--United States

Passion’s Desire

A welcoming sight to behold,
the anticipation of your rising, and
the striking beauty of your setting,
oh sun, a longing to reach out
and touch you….to be a part of the
picture that you paint over the blue skies,
lush oceans and plentiful mountains.

Hearing the waves embrace the shores
on a lazy summer’s day, while the taste
of a ripe peach, or a juicy melon accents
the evening’s gentle breeze; a moment
that can only be described as tranquil;
to touch you, Mother Nature, would
satisfy the passion burning deep within.

Passion’s desire to reach out and touch
the Earth’s goodness and humanity’s smile.

  1. Exceptional poem, Maurice. Indeed, most of time words seem so inadequate to describe the emotion one experiences when a deep and precious moment of nature beholds us............... to me, this is one of your deepest and best! Sheri
