Birth of the Sun

Lingering over your heart,
A cool kiss of dew breathed
By the mouth of night just before the dawn
I soak into your skin,
Absorbed like lovers’ mouths in a gentle kiss
I sink deep down,
Traveling like bodies tangled in lovemaking
Through the heaving of your breasts,
Pouring like a stream amid rosegardens
Through the shivering passion of your ribs.

Below your belly the moon –
Translucent womb where stars
And unheard whispers burn out
With a sigh of surrender in the great white –
Burns with the first light of day
As from your eyes
And from the parting of your limbs
Rays are gathering and dancing
Like moths around a candlelight
Heralding the great birth.
