Embers heat,
a radiance in the night sky;
a quiet but bright
burning light-
your eyes.

The sun peaks over the horizon
and the edges of the universe curve upward
with your smile.

Where there was a still darkness
you bring a fire,
warming,
steaming up life liquids
in the rivers that are my veins.

To feel your touch is to melt,
becoming a blissful sea of awareness-
a pleasure,
the depth, the reach-
uncharted, unknown.

You,
a curious passion embodied,
a treasure I do not know
but dream of.

I drop down,
down through my body,
down to my feet.

I am walking and the sidewalk runs and the sidewalk ends with the street.

I feel this heat between my toes,
sands of the sea welcoming me.
The wash of the waves
tossing and tumbling
songs in my head.
I breathe,
breathe into my center,
bridge between earth and sky-

I walk in spirals and spins,
turn out,
turn in.

This stone sits,
poised, under this seasons seagull shit,
and the sand,
only moved by grace of bodied life.

Days sky changes from grey to grey-
all colours in between,
reflected in this moments spray of the sea,
dancing in the sky.
