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.
