Another poem I found, titleless and without a date

A distant hum of music
surrounds itself with voices.
The summer closes, the darkness quickens.
Crickets, hidden in the night,
play their music.
The constant sound softens my thoughts,
breathing slows,
my heart is calm.
The altar, prepared for a king.
Candle scent lingers,
lights flicker.
Prepare yourself.
Enter within the mystery
the deep love of the divine.
The depths of the ocean and
the limitless night sky
cannot compare
to the love that is here.

(ps: this is one of my own poems that I found in my journal. I was written sometime in the fall of '08)

A Tug on the Heart

Let words ever linger on your lips
and the gaze of your eyes never faulter.
Your gentle touch, a soft summer breeze,
the whisper of your love a soothing melody.
In the secret of your heart I can be found.
You give yourself wholly,
asking me to do the same.
I seek rest in your spirit,
a peace that quenches my thirsting soul.
