EVOKED

Holding a theme of love evoked
from the union of so many
concentric sets of savored moments
crossing in a collation of sweet
flavors, smiles and surges of passion
pleased, I wonder how can I sustain
such pleasantness, such satisfaction
of my essence?  Age devours youth’s
resilience day by day, retention wanes
as the fire flickers, the embers cool
but I will not be doused, love’s kiss
immortal must be, nor worms
consume its fidelity,  printed on
affection’s n-dimensional manifold
sealed in my memory field; replayed
to the sound of breakers on the coast
or waves of wind moving leaves and
curtains, comforting breath of breeze.
