Four Elements of Touch
I want to touch you like the water
With the safety of the womb
With the river’s endless flow
With the ocean’s tides
As I stroke to your centre
And gently away
With the gathering wave
Crashing its love on the shores of your body
I want to touch you like the air
Blowing my breath onto your skin
With the cooling breeze of summer
And the crisp wind of winter
That lifts your heart
And carries you to magical places
I want to touch you like the earth
Deep and solid
With the quiet of the mountains
And the coolness of the caves
With the mystery of the crystals
That live in its bosom
And gives birth
To the delicate scent of the rose
I want to touch you like the fire
With the liquid heat of my passion
With the melting flame of desire
That burns in my heart
And allows my hands
To tell you of my love
For I am the world
And the world is within me
And you are my world.
There are so many ways to touch; it’s a world of limitless possibility, endless exploration, and discovery.
Touch is a language, the language of the body, feeling, sensation, that goes to places our words cannot.
There’s a knowing in touch, a truth that tells our heart so much.
There’s healing in touch, release, relaxation, comfort, connection, intimacy.
And pleasure, such pleasure.
Touch is a lifelong adventure, taking us higher, deeper, endlessly. As one layer parts, the next is revealed. As we become aware of one sensation, the next emerges into our experience.
Touch is an energy, expressing that which is within us, our hands tell of our heart, tell of our intention.
Touch brings us into presence, into the intimacy of contact, of skin meeting skin.
Touch is a meditation, prayer worship.
Touch is learning, awakening, expanding.
Touch is longing and desire, fulfillment, bliss, and peace.
Touch is the place we can rest, belong, open, soften.
In touch, with touch, through touch, we are restored, revitalized, healed, connected.
There is so much for us in touch, in being touched, in touching, giving, receiving, sharing touch.
Many say it’s a necessity for our bodies, our hearts, every aspect of our health and well-being, and in this time of isolation for many, more needed than ever.
