Tender Meetings

Peace, one and all…


Tender Meetings

Moonlight caresses the swaying branches,
like a lover returned,
and made eager
by long separation.

Trees perfume themselves,
reaching forth into the night,
with hands
slender and beautiful.

This is love,
the tender night-enfolded meetings
of lover
and loved one.

(Abdur Rahman, 23rd October 2007)
