We lay beneath warm
night skies.- -Moon’s vaporous glow
pools liquid pearl beads
on your skin.- -I marvel so,
the strength of your back.
You stir- -settle- -a feather
next to me on night
wind’s sigh.- -Your gentle breathing
lulls me to the calm
of your heart’s whispered beating.
In violet dreams
I swim the sea of your eyes,
angel- -in the fire
of your golden soul.
