fresh morning

fell lightly on me

drowned me in the cool sweat

of a night

spent passionately loving

the earth

coaxing from her musty depths

and dark crevices

a warmth well hidden there

feeding her

and feeding on her

stirring with expert moon fingers

the oceans she bears

into whirlpools and waves

only night sailors see

running unseen hands

over her surface

causing even the trees

to rise a little higher toward it

and sleeping flowers to sigh

and so morning came to me

and in one moist kiss

revealed to me it's one true love

carressing the earth in silent darkness

Beautiful imagery

Some people come into our lives and quickly go. Some stay for awhile and leave footprints in our heart and we are never ever the same.

Thank you all for leaving footprints!!
