Sea-Me

2008

Our shadows are taller than ourselves.

Night Light

 

 

Rose-warm light spreads

Unbounded

Over sea, sky, land.

 

Your eyes find me

Unclothed

Mouth on mouth

 

Ranging

Fingers in petal softness

Fire desire.

Dream on

 

 

Rapt

In your soft

Perfumed presence,

My senses

Sleep,

Breathing in

The dream

Of your oneness

With me,

But still

You walk

Away.

Fragment

 

 

Like a shell 

On the beach

I enclosed

My self

 

Isolate

Whole

Contained

 

But you searched

Me out

Uncovered

Laid me bare

 

In love

Complex

A part.
