wherever i may find her
passion fires her eyes –
burning brighter than a thousand suns –
whimsy twinkles there, too –
darting through stars to hide, then seek –
a romp in golden fields, hand in hand –
all wrapped up in her laughter –
siren’s song, angel’s wing, healer’s heart –
lightning woven in her halo –
smoky mystery, gleaming grace, she electrifies
leaves me giddy, grinning—full of light
she’s sister’s strength, mother’s comfort
fluffy clouds gently whisper hush in her soft embrace
flesh pales at her perfection
time holds its breath
I will know her, always and forever
Too beautiful to be, she is
wherever i may find her

A love poem?
From a writer of mystery books?
Yes, it’s true. Guess I’ve always been a closet romantic (among other things.) And I continue to be inspired by love.
The way I see it, most of us came here looking for love—a tall order on this “kill or be killed” planet. But then, who among us doesn’t love a challenge—much like a good mystery.
Of course, your comments are always welcome.
Both Dark Side of Sunset Pointe and Flight of the Tarantula Hawk are available on Amazon. Grey Daze, the third book in the Lance Underphal Mystery series is due out the summer of 2014.

Michael, this was absolutely magnificent to read. It brought a kind, lighthearted warmth to my dismal, bleak and shadowy morning. Your descriptive language provided a beautiful image in my head of “where you may find her.” Stunning. Thank you for sharing this.
Thanks for your kind words. They make me smile — happy I could make a difference in your day.
Amazing writing! A man than can write like that from the deepest parts of their soul truly deserves and will find love. Like Gina, I could visualize your love for her wherever you may find her. Coming from a woman, we love open and honest men that can speak with the heart. It will keep a woman happy and deeply connected in a long term intimate relationship. Brilliant descriptive words used. I understood you, completely.
Thanks for sharing!
Michael the woman who captures your heart that is if she has not already will be a lucky woman. Its always a pleasure to find out you have a closet romatic at heart in love with them. Then they will know there could a surprise waitimg around any and all corners of your lifes together. And to me anticipation is a most treasured emotion in a relationshi. Very nicly written!!!!
