A ray of light by shuttered pane does pass,
Bringing with it refraction;
New light shone on air, fire, water, and stone,
How so I am enraptured.
Enveloped by your rocking embrace,
Sweet breathe’s satisfaction;
Needing only what holds a fleck afloat;
Soft lips set skin ablaze.
Drawn to you without consent,
So deep is this attraction,
The path was set by moon, sun, and stars,
Crackled words fan the flame.
From yellowed love letters, neatly stacked and bowed,
Blossomed tangible abstraction;
Apple seed to orchard, in one short springtime day
Is illuminated by dawn’s freshest ray.
