Buttered like toast
with words of love.
Soft and dripping,
you are filled,
I’m consumed again.

Attribution? is that yours?
Silly me! Yes, It’s mine; a small, untitled poem.
Love is food consumed by the soul…consumation,like the heart beats for one kiss at a moment in time….
I love your work…
Ah Aurora, you’re so right – love is the soul’s preferred sustenance. Thanks!
The only tribute I can think of to pay is two of my favourite lines from Lalleshwari (1320–1392), also known as Lalla. You can look her up on Wikipedia, of course. She was a mystic of the Kashmiri Shaivite sect, and at the same time, a Sufi saint. I recently read “Naked Song, by Laldyada, Lalla, Coleman Barks (Translator), 1992, Maypop Books, ISBN 0-9618916-4-5.” My two favorite lines from Naked Song are
“The mind is what sleeps. What recognizes itself as God is awake.”
