A surprise treat

Well, it's been a while since I've posted a poem seeing as my other spot, The SaPhyre Lounge has been closed, but I was offered the opportunity to collaborare with a fantastic writer Sojourner G and could not turn it down. It was both an honor and a privilege to write with someone I admire for his own writing and spiritual messages. The italicized lines are the ones I wrote.

Here it is...

Distant LoveI rejoice as your sun
Breaks dawn over my earth each day
Your love crests my horizon
With the promise of unlimited possibilities

Rendezvous conceived in my mind
Anxiously awaiting their birth into reality
Seconds carry the weight of hours
As I yearn for the nearness of you

Giddy am I
At the prospect of experiencing your countenance
The anticipation of your symphonic voice
Playing a string laden concerto of your affection for me

My heartbeat I send on the whisper of a prayer
Given to the wind to make it reach your ears
Counting on my faith for strength
To make my wishes comes true

My mind searches the expanse of the universe
For divergent futures written before time
Big Bang genesis established this
Woven into the fabric of all that is and will be

My feelings for you like still water runs deep
And my love eclipses my sadness
Because distance dissipates what the heart feels
Dying to share living with you

My eternity resides with you
Seeking world acknowledgement of our mutual devotion
To be defined by your love is my greatest desire
Would that I had the courage to confess all this to you

That was amazing!!! So deep and simply beautiful. That was by far the best collaboration that I've seen in a very long time. Excellent work by both writers. You should consider making this a habit :-). Wow, did I mention how Outstanding this is?!?! :-)

Thanks Blu. Ever since I read your poetry in the Lounge and some of your off line stuff, I knew one day we would and could make something spark. Thanks for your willingness to lend your talent to a friend's creative ideas.

A very hot piece, love it, especially the stanza below:
