On a day when the wind is perfect


.
.
On a day
when the wind is perfect,
the sail just needs to open and the world is full of beauty.
Today is such a 
day.
.
My eyes are like the sun that makes promises;
the promise of life
that it always
keeps
.
each morning.
.
The living heart gives to us as does that luminous sphere,
both caress the earth with great
tenderness.
.
This is a breeze that can enter the soul.
This love I know plays a drum. Arms move around me;
who can contain their self before my beauty?
.
Peace is wonderful,
but ecstatic dance is more fun, and less narcissistic;
gregarious He makes our lips.
.
On a day when the wind is perfect,
the sail just needs to open
and the love starts.
.
Today is such
a day.
