by Poet on the Piano   May 3, 2016

She loved me here
among the ravenous mountains
and storytelling meadow and
whistling grass.

Here I learned the tribal
voice of the wind, how to
speak without words,
her sun-kissed fingers dancing
en pointe on the nape of my neck.

The fire in her eyes
lit the sun in my soul.

All the past storms flew
from my ashy lungs.
I no longer wore my shame
as another skin, instead I
breathed wildflowers and
hopeful promises.

In nature, I had no reason
to become a burial site.
I blossomed, like stars on
sky and land;
I became a legendary love.

The energy - the light we radiate -
will take us everywhere.
