Moonrise - Poem by Nick Perritt

We sleep till sunrise,
Your iris undressed, horizon,
Breathe in, flowers open,
Every breath an ocean.
Sing through bird songs
Your hair entangled flowers,
Stars cling angel wings,
"Lone sun, direct our gaze".
Our naked feet in grass immersed
Still bathed in morning dew,
Hands entwined
We climb
Beyond our father oak.
Your smile surrounds the sky.
Birds fall mid flight
You weep,
Soft sighs behind your eyes,
Tears inside Gods heart.
Your bare skin touches rain
Trees sway, eyelashes,
"Earth cease breathing"
Absorbed in stare drowning.
Shower of dancing clouds,
You sing clear skies
Lie down.
Sunset close your eyes
Look in, breathe out
Hearts sleep starlight.
You die to come alive
One last Moonrise
You fly,
Your eyes
Reincarnated sky.
