It is beats of life
I gather from you
in the rapid melting of day
fatigue dissipated into ecstasy
diluted into drops
in a lump of ire
when full flood rushes strongest
overpowering me
sour water of your dream
mixed to mine
we are immense
together and luminous
even if distant as pale stars
fading into dawn


I have not forgotten
the scent of orange blossoms
on your hair
you have left the remains of nerols
on my bed sheets
oranges and lemon trees
bloom every sunset
on love's lips


Hug me
from roots to tips
how does storm water with trees ...
when the wind comes
between the branches
embraces this body of leaves
you know
the thousand springs I watched
the sleepless nights
made of melancholic stars:
take them between your arms
and cuddle up to find the dream
