Salty Kisses

Touching your grace,
your elegance,
your random perfection,
I feel your control take hold of me
and shiver me with delight
as I reach to understand things I can’t explain.
You are so much bigger than I,
eternal, ageless, consistent.
So brilliant is your power
that I feel I should fear even a whisper
of your resounding collapse as you beckon me to your side;
and yet I sense nothing but a calm awakening
as I draw closer to the spellbinding touch
of your salty kisses upon me feet
and entrance into my soul.
