When I am Alone I Hear You

19 Oct

There is some warm sky waiting
for me full of her sweet blue
fire, blue machined hills
and telephone days.

Her hidden arctic glass
images buried deep in her
sweet mind have
become essential
to my heart.

“Will you please take my fire
skin in the dark?” she asks
like a bird between the moon
and sky on a dark winter night
of snow falling.

I become a green blossom dream
laughing and floating through
her window on the breeze, for
in my heart she always makes
it spring.

      Thanks so much, and I really thought that last line brought it all home- glad you agree! Peace.
