"all we seek"
Just to love you is all that I desire
what but loving comprises my desire?
in this world where ten thousand aims arise
what's their ultimate basis? why desire?
primrose byways of transport draw the mind
what distinguishes low from high desire?
such specific impressions swathe the soul!
coffee socials but what of chai desire?
repetition emdemic to each ethos! --
some find solace in apple pie desire
who at dawn would invite desire to bloom
were at dusk heard to murmur "die desire!"
is the hero the one who wins the girl?
Buddhist victors (I'm told) defy desire
recognition which human nature craves
seems a key that may underlie desire
in the meadow where creatures gather life
lilies blossom when breezes sigh "desire"
meditation requires a private eye
at the crime scene did you espy desire?
consciousness spreads its cloth without a crease
fresh emerging when we untie desire
the beloved embodies all we seek!
resolution both ear & eye desire
never yet has my heart's desire been met!
on life's tablet she scribbled "fie desire!"
Raphael! as your nature grows refined
you'll laugh off vapid ghosts who cry "desire!"
those inclined toward a literary bent
for ironic conceits show wry desire
the ascetic who seeks to merge with God
bathes in rivers maintaining dry desire
apathetic in end may grow what mind
pondering fretwork of those who ply desire?
through the shawl of a January mood
does there furtively glance July desire?
every color reveals a differing need
can dispassion deftly apply desire?
each appendage a microcosmic zone
arm conception may balance thigh desire
pithy sayings suggest protracted thought
flippant feelings often belie desire
in the discourse philosophers propound
are the quatrains they cite anti-desire?
when the wheel of rebirth is spinning swift
there's a blurring of girl- & guy-desire
the salubrious grape brings earth's delight
risky whiskey conveying rye desire
all were sleeping in summer's heavy torpor
still some shadow sheltered a sly desire
in the market you thought to sell your verse?
"dime a dozen!" but who will buy desire?
all the lanes of the world play theatre's ruse
hello lamp-post! alas! goodbye desire!
who'll deliver my screed to Raphael?
bring crisp paper and I'll supply desire!
every joy is a fruit of love & patience
flowers blossom though stems deny desire
limning poems & paintings artists blush
when they seek to depict her shy desire
all the books in the world display one ink
all the fates in the stars imply desire
this creation whose genesis is dark! --
ask your question and I'll reply "desire"
were you seeking the wisdom of the east?
Raphael! you were hoodwinked by desire
