Cursive dreams

You draw my cursive form
in the pages of your sleep
I dream the flash of wingtips
in the words you wake to speak

You hum the rivers of my laughter
beside our own time-creek,
I whisper your name into Love’s feathers,
polish her poignant beak..

You feel for me
with hands of hot-lit Grace:
I feed you rain and the roll of thunder:
trace my poetry,
in the beautiful lines
of your face

You enfold me, breathe me in
to the infinite-blue safety,
of your fathomless
deep

I swallow your melodious tones
and dance the flints of you,
of us, on ochre earth,
with hooves, fins, wings..

Then, head against your chest,
in pulse-perfect sync,
we freefall into fully surrendered
mystique.

When you leave,

These,
are the kissing-coals,
I keep..
