Listening to the delicate murmur of your heart
that echoes without words
as the coo of the dawn chorus
nestles in the background
of sunrise

I roll my attention closer to yours
and taste your kisses with my lips
then listen to the waves of your voice
as it sails me through the ocean
of your eyes


i will tell you secrets
about the rainbow in mine

- side by side, we tip-toe upon stepping stones,
softening the surface between rocks
and other places

bathe in a moment of madness
that brings a method of humour
and smiles in our cheeks

we twist and tango through the woods as the
autumn looks on
baring all below the shadows of trees

we rest and lay upon a carpet of fallen leaves
slipping beneath the blanket of a
twilight air

we observe the body language of the moon
and witness the stars, as they write messages through the clouds and leave a paper trail

for the universe to unfold

we give each other gifts-
wrapped in curiosity and tied with ribbons of our thoughts-
that when opened
trickle surprises of tears

~ ~ ~ ~

The wind whispers a soft goodnight
and gently dims the candles

and we founder-

- easing into the remains
of the day

leaving us to release the reins
of our impish
