In Your Lips: A Poem by Jose Rafael Prieto

the poet himself
In honor of National Poetry Day I thought I'd share this poem by my friend and fellow writer (and poet) Jose Rafael Prieto.

“In Your Lips”


In your lips,
I search
for the freshness
of rain.

Your beauty,
damp with desire
and ever-present, is
continually
born anew,
pleasing me
now and now and now,
steadily.

Your love is calm
and majestic.

Whereas Divine
is Law and my physics,
you and your love
are my event horizon.
