Autumn Brown

My Hispanic lady
her skin
shades of autumn brown
hair black
like the raven
eyes that burn
with dark fire
shadow forest body...

I saw her in my dreams
in a grove picking olives
from the grandest tree
suddenly she is plucked
by God himself
then created her all over
for me in autumn brown...

Come out tonight mi amor
meet me down by the sea
for you are so beautiful
the gulls will fly around you
the very air of the sea I promise
will ignite my love for you...

Your mouth kisses of water
lips lashes of whips
kisses that opens my heart
like the sharpest blades
the bright disc of the moon
soars and explodes
beneath my sleepy eyelids...

In the mist of the night
I am awake and content
wrapped in the safety
of my moonlight shadow lover
my light brown goddess
lusciousness wrapped in black satin
clothed in the dusk...

When we make love
the moon bleeds black
it is always
one minute to midnight...

Poor me I become so sad
when the morning light arrives
for all of the long night
I have been enjoying
the affections of the one I love best
beneath the light of the moon...

I wish to be draped
in night again
where shadows swallow us...

My Spanish angel
a breeze blows softly
moving the ship of my thoughts
to you mi alma gemela
outside my window the leaves waltz
all of this for love
I am lulled to sleep...

Spread your wings my angel
we will fly
you are so beautiful
we will merge in the winter solstice...
