This is a gorgeous book of sensual poetry written
by two people in relationship to each other—one call and
one response at a time. This book has been used by many couples
to write their wedding vows. Never before a book of such beauty
and craft written by two people in love who happen to be poets.
You will not want to put it down. Night Gardening is divided into
sections, each one illustrated with lush photographs, available
in full or partial color.
Section I: Tender Invitation. A section devoted to poems written
while on the search for the soul-mate beloved.
Section II: First Embrace. A poetic journey into the liquid flow
of love from the first meeting, and the tentative and courageous
steps into choosing love.
Section III: Drunk on Your Words. The first of two of the more
erotic sections, rooted in the physical love of the newly mated
Section IV: Night Gardening. The second section that is rich in
the language of sexual connection layered with a deepening commitment
to the couple’s love.
Section V: Love Letters. This chapter details feelings engendered
by closeness and the fear that closeness can arouse in us, along
with the sadness at times of separation.
Section VI: Ecstasy on the Journey. This is the rest of life’s
journey as a soul-mated couple—the times of deepening, the
times of spiritual growth through love, the journey to the end
of this life.
I feel your garden growing moist
within my hands. Rock and rest
with me upon a dancing land.
–from “Full Moon” by Lance
you bring me flowers that wet
the sheets, live forever, anoint
you with the scent of love.
-from "Roses are Enough" by Therèse
