this love between us,
dreamlike and ephemeral. impermanent.
your lips join
with mine, bulbous and blooming
like wildflowers in secret meadows
under soft sun.
your tongue seeks
warmth. extracting and revelling in
I swoon and leave red petals
where our embrace was felt,
like fingers of grass that dance
drenched in moody, far-away fragrance.
you lie spent, breathing and
but we are gone…dispersed
carried away by gentle breeze.
and now, redolent, aching nights
fill all tomorrows
