With You

Waking with you in beautiful serenity
Far away from elsewhere outer-maelstroms,
Your face reminiscent of rose petals
Opening to the light, a dove’s wings
Beckoning flight.
Watching you returning from your dreams,
Yes, truly I can see
Your countenance is lit
From within.

I reach beneath the duvet,
Beneath our joyous waves,
Into the cooling sea-green fathoms
Of butterfly dances
And the arias of the whales,
Where sunlight swerves to genius
And your soul calls to me
Through your flesh,
Morning scaffold to the cosmos.
