breath

how you take me, shape me
get into my corners
& lift me, wake me

as i walk through the world i
take you in and out, like the tide

’tis a journey we’re on
starting from the inside

bloom

the flowering
of clouds
in a turquoise sky

my lover & i
stand
on ancient shores

yet it is
each other
we most wish
to explore

his playfulness
his wisdom
nourish
like the sea

in his presence
there is 
a blooming
within me
