Sailors Knot

A few pieces of sage wrapped in jute twine
The perfection of a sailors knot
Rosemary and lavender; peel back the layers
The loved, the love lorn or worse; the never love-d
Candle light and a drum beat; whispers in the wind
A hush, keeping the darkness away – keeping the demons at bay
A tender touch; protection from a storm unlike any port
Left wrist tattoo; Awen three rays leading up to a path
To a high point of three dots…no dashes…no hesitation
Woman of the page heart to precious soul
Worn with pride, my dominant side – I linger over words
The way your kiss lingers; finger tips to tender lips – pause
A dozen or so cherished pages left blank for therapeutic intent
