Dew - Poem by Herbert Nehrlich

A voice of substance,
to pierce gray cirrus clouds,
a disobedient angel
dismissed by God
for carnal acts,
'twas morning then
and cold on earth.
He sat within the shade
of ancient junipers
and dreamed.
When, silently
a dropp of silver dew
bequeathed an urgent stir
and, like a butterfly,
she came.
It was the welcome nectar
of her hot desire.

    And ' within the shade
    of ancient junipers',
    she slept at ease,
    yet only till,
    the gasping, ...
    of his next breath..

    Beautiful poem. :)
