Oak | September 16, 2014

Tenderly, the candlelight plays
in the delphinium shades of your eyes
across the aged oak table.

Across the aged oak
we balance thoughts,
interlock perceptions,
desires united
like the patina of wine
ageing in oak casks,
maturing in unison,
flavoured harmoniously.

Across the aged oak
we butt like oak ships
through life’s outpouring estuaries
into our harbour of domesticity
where prevailing winds are tamed.

Tenderly, the oak reflects us
lending enchantment
to querulous candle flame,
gently stroking us
into woodgrain.
