WAVES UNFURL

 

smooth blue satin

evening’s arms and you

 

pull me closer, inhale dusk  

your pulse with mine

 

our tender currents tremble

aspen leaves in rain

 

salty dew perfumes

our skin our careless hair

 

our bodies understand

shadow’s hungry need

 

ascent along slow curves

our silhouettes and we

 

pulled from drowning swim

to save each other breathe

 

kisses into sails

fastened deep below

 

glide into stillness

curl to one another

 

yield the waves that follow

smooth unfurling satin
