A Door Opens
Doing what I want to do, it's something else. unrest, shuffle,
Amber Light Memories
guttering of the candle, the slightest warmth tickling my skin.
Half shadow half amber light memories.
shudder of flowing water
nothing sound of my breathing
in and out,
moving with the wind
moving with the earth.
round moon thumping with my heartbeat,
thumping with my loins.
