Kanaalaq

Kanaalaq

Kanaalaq came and bore me kisses
From bright blue skies where heaven’s bliss is …
To me, a loveless, lonely mortal,
Descended she from heaven’s portal!

She passed my flesh to reach my spirit-
Bestowing love as she drew near it;
And merging, merging like the mystic,
Grew one with me unhedonistic.

In passions steeped we intermingled-
Our souls with one another tingled-
Til we were one, and we were captured
In deep elation, deeply raptured.

The bliss brought existential numbing-
And climax rapidly was coming:
Nirvana’s otherworldly feeling
Consumed my being and had me reeling!

All hint of night had fled off frightened,
And I, within this bliss, enlightened
Felt truly happy with this creature:
“O never leave” I did beseech her.

She dwells here still (my heart is grateful),
This goddess- loving, gorgeous, faithful.
She fills me too with true renewal …
Kanaalaq, ah, my lovely jewel.

You always seem like you take so much time to craft your poetry, and I appreciate that.
