Free Verse # 312 (a dawn within a dawn)

Her name amid my ribs
the swell and surge of fire,
a hushed breath imbued
with the fragrance of dawn.

~

Just so
from the first touch
their hearts
in one another
bloomed
a dawn within a dawn

~

The light shivered
and my heart ached
seeing the sobbing flame
paint her face
into a sea of shadows

~

The flame submits to the flesh that fuels it, the honey, the wine, the oil.

~

Her eyes
wells overflowing
with the water of desire,
nimbus moons
kindling
his oceanic fire.

~

Self-enclosed,
a solitary flame
burning
on the window
of the night

~

He slept
feeling her warmth
flow next to him,
all through the night
a river of fire
sobbing tenderly.

~

She sleeps,
my kiss
a star-bird
nestling
behind her ear,
spilling into her
a fragrance of light
softer than the dawn.
