Free Verse # 276 (in one tangle of our breath)

On his tired face
her shadow fell,
sunlight soaking
like water through the ground.

~

Through the window crack
a cool breeze flowed in
stroking her neck,
shivering her body
in ripples aching
to etch her fire
deep into his skin.

~

A single drop
knows the ocean’s secret,
in one tangle of our breath
the universe and its stars.

~

That oceans in a gaze
can be exchanged,
swelling to overflow
and carrying them,
bare and embracing,
to a world of their own.

~

I love small flowers –
the simplest feelings
and purest dreams
in their shadows grow.

~

I wander within a dream
that cannot remember
its beginning or end –
like a star it whirls
in the deeps of her eyes.
