Joshua Dinkin (March 8,1985 / Boca Raton, Florida)
Like the saplings love the soil
In the royal blue of evening,
So I’ll coil next to you,
Your loyal lover— unbelieving!
In the chambers of my heart,
Deep between the folds and creases,
Lies my delicate love for you,
Until the beating slows and ceases.
Bluer than the sapphire waves,
Redder than huge ruby rings,
Greener than the emerald hills,
Whiter than the angel’s wings,
Pigments swirl and barrage my mind,
The figments of a grand collage,
And standing there amidst the colors,
Your image— a shimmering mirage!
With sleepiness now in my eyes
I slip into a seamless dream,
So vague and vivid, meaningless—
A glimpse, a glimmer, a gleam!
