Beyond the reef
in crackling amber
the sun rises above the earth,
kissing river beds strewn with lovers
Passed mouth to mouth they whisper innuendo
the possibility of living wet dream.
Bobbing bodies mimic boats on waves
and soon delirium penetrates a new country.
Heat and fire flare in bandied breeze
igniting insatiable shadow;
Pure and venial, the air incarnate
excites the ocean and orgies sing.
The quivering above ground
slithers silkily spilling watercolor rhapsody,
in a gush of white a fertile tsunami
reeks reckless abandon creating a new hemisphere.
Once by moonlight,
they rubbed sleep from eyes, hugging hurt
as they clamored high in ghostly pallor.
Some leading the dance, hungered for knowledge,
others played shadowy roles.
Yet wafting still, comes the foreign fragrance,
fragments of spirituality, a longing to touch,
as abundance rolls in shorelines green.
Offered mercies, fragile as wings,
shades of truth cascading like water, breathless
in sensual splash;
the image of truth,
the threshold of tomorrow.
