The poem(s) are below...


I gather the sound of leaves

I gather the sound of leaves, the crazy wind, 
the secret of the bird wings, that splinter
the sunrays...
Feathers ,  journeys , oceans , skies.

The sea , the chorus of waves , 
recall the caress, the deep music of the ocean,
the serenading moonlight --
a wildflower --
beside you, lying in the grass
under a cloud of mist.
Breaths spent in one beat;
Wet hair spilling lavender -- 
And the contours blur, drown in the night air
....On your hair, and on your lips, 
I am in those traces
of the morning dew.
