A flat bottom boat at dawn
skims smooth- – silent,
not even a whispered ripple
shreds the coming light.
Your love is like this- –
gentle and easy, floating
deep inside me- -a dew drop
on my soul, a hush
patterned on my heart
etched there- –
                 smooth
                       gentle
                              fluid.
