Free Verse # 275 (letters in wine bottles)

Let me burn, she said,
be the poem
flaring in your heart,
layer after layer
shedding its veils
into the quiet brilliance of dawn.

~

Amid the white sheets
they met like two roaring waves,
and the spray of their crash
left the breathless night teeming
with mad, quivering stars.

~

Let me sleep
on the shoulder
of the passing wind,
and if I should fall
I’ll be a sigh of leaves
caressing the earth and stars.

~

Letters in wine bottles,
Through the sea of silence
I kept sending her poems
Hoping that, one day,
They’d land on her shore.

~

I want your breath
Swelling inside of me,
Bursting my skin
Into a rain of petals
Falling through the sky.
