There is a branch, green and fresh
Waving outside my window
Scratching outside my window

There is a branch scratching snowflakes
Will this day frost it with snow
Will the evening glaze it with ice

We share our breath beneath this branch
Our lips warm and quiver in sweetness
Our lips glide and shiver, deliciously

Lillies and Starlight

The house is not the same without us :)
We are its crystal chandelier,
wreathed with lillies and tipped in starlight.
We are the golden rushes of sunlight
on a perfect sunday morning
warm and brilliant in each others arms

We chase each other around the bed
ruby throated hummingbirds at play
children at the beach, carefree
collapsing together, two palms touching
leaning our fronds into each other
before the breezy sapphire sea

Our laughter before bedtime
is the demon pianists' private concert
filling the room with the rarity of purpose
and contentment worth closing your eyes
to savor, for one evening more
