Image for the poem Dreams


the small distance between me and you
espied daughter of the turning water
is not near as great as what the crows flew  
when I worshiped you under heaven’s altar
blue-green stripes danced in pirouettes  
while they dressed the mistress of the dark  
innumerable angels lifted up the moon
to sculpt her wan smile in a curious arc
blades of grass swayed in the night breeze
the stars looked on with mystical glee
your soft affections I accepted with ease  
with the sweetness of a lone honey bee  
trees and shadows waltz in the silence
fireflies write your name in the air
shooting stars mark my sky for guidance
as the dreams of you take me there  
your love sifts me like sand through fingers
and it is as endless as the rolling ocean  
as daylight nears and night barely lingers
my soul resonates with your devotion

Author's Note
“the moon winked at me with intention
dawn clouds smiled at me with a blush
I dreamt that love was our invention
and my kiss seduced you in a rush”
