After the rain, I walk alone,  along soft footpaths


The sun warming my soul, healing the pain of the bitter storms


Following the long winding road that leads to a new tomorrow.


Home beckons from around the next bend.


Sanctuary of grace and peace


Dancing motes of sunlight reflect a joyous heart,


freed from bondage...


A soaring hawk, silently tracking my progress


Graceful symbol of freedom from the past


I have come through the other side of bitterness


into a place of loving peace


 


The weathered gate offers a loving welcome ..


For all who enter


Mullioned windows opened wide 


embrace the soft breeze


and healing light


A place of love and laughter.


Earned through scouring years of pain


 


Treading softly on burnished oaken floors,


I find him waiting


Dozing by the fire, glasses slipped halfway down his beloved face


Softly I ease onto his lap, arms twined round his neck and whisper,...


Home now my beloved,


safe in your heart once again.


Our lined faces etched with lifes fingerprints,


crease with joy,


His mouth closes on mine with sudden need


On clean soft sheets..


 he lies over me


Our hands twined,


eyes gazing into each other's souls,


 he enters my liquid depths.. silently


We stay motionless..


We are home safe...,joined in silent rapture


My body trembles, arches against him


As he pours his warm seed into my pulsing body


We join in a long moment of blinding,searing oneness


Two souls one heart


Home at last,


 in the late afternoons fading light

Wow... I need to find that winding road you were on. When I take a walk, all I get at the end of it is blisters.
sigh...
Beautifully written.
