Baby Come Walk With Me   1 comment

Rose Lake July 2013A trail near Rose Canyon Lake in the Santa Catalina Mountains — Computer Painting by kenne

Baby come walk with me
around the lake
where I will do
anything for you — 
delaying not, hurrying not.

Baby come walk with me
around the lake
where no previous day
will be like this — 
delaying not, hurrying not.

Baby come walk with me
around the lake
sharing moments of bliss
and transcendental longings — 
delaying not, hurrying not.

Baby come walk with me
around the lake
reading Wallace Stevens
and escape by metaphor — 
delaying not, hurrying not.

Baby come walk with me
around the lake
outlining the contours
of our experience — 
delaying not, hurrying not.

Baby come walk with me
around the lake
creating our own cosmos
resembling the Creation — 
delaying not, hurrying not.
