The summer night & I share an exquisite secret,
Whirring mosquitos happily prattle on,
My euphoria shoots heavenward & deepens,
Starlit black velvet & sweet celestial song.
Many ants build up a nest one morsel at a time,
And in the same way, my hope & faith was restored,
Golden, azure drops run over black paint in a line,
Peeling here & there, reveals the face of L’amour.
Time slips away backward, cannot be recaptured,
Like tall buildings slipping down an earthquake crevice,
Remaining is the echo of the day in nature,
A wish to be less afraid, more adventurous.
I bask in warmth; a tender arm slips around me.
There’s love in the world yet, he’s finally found me.
