the flowering
of clouds
in a turquoise sky

my lover & i
on ancient shores

yet it is
each other
we most wish
to explore

his playfulness
his wisdom
like the sea

in his presence
there is 
a blooming
within me


deep in the woods, i found a child
whose unrelenting radiance
seeped from him

so much so that he
can’t look in mirrors anymore
nor does he wish to

he has finally found
the lightness
of all that he is
