Stunningly you are a woman,
sitting naked,
chin on knees,
eyes on me.

A lioness
centered on rumpled sheets,
content for the moment
in your proud young passion.

Electrically I see you,
discovering again your wholeness,
while savoring still
your warm, wet welcome of me.

Knowingly I feel,
feelingly I know,
in a grace of thanks to you,
that strongly, newly, I am a man.
