Luminous Love (A Valentine's Poem)

Luminous Love

Love slips in
through the crack
where the light seeps
over the sill of hearts
whispering softly
beneath a star-studded sky
wishing upon a new day
in rosy wonder
just beyond the horizon
where two hearts play
on the fields of happily-ever-after.

Love moons
in adolescent delight
glistening in nascent splendour
in the desires
of two young lovers
held captive to Cupid's arrow
piercing their hearts
with its once upon a time
 imaginings that this could be
Love everlasting.

Love blossoms and blooms
upon the aging
of time spent
a look, a glance,
a word, a gesture
in the luminous
of Eros' embrace
lulling two hearts gently
into the arms of Love.
