Pure Bliss

Barefoot I walk in a dew-filled meadow.

The sky flashes with your love.

A crayon pack of shooting stars

Trail ribbons of fire in their wake.

Your arms reach across the horizon

Bridging the lacuna between heaven and earth.

A wondrous cause-n-effect ensues:

Lilies caress lilacs and lilacs caress lavender

Nudging the great oak awake.

 

I doze into a deep sleep under its protection.

You kiss open my eyelids.

I yawn…

Your purple passion trickles down my pink throat.

My eyes flash with your love.

You catapult me passed the sun.

I swallow the moon.

It dissolves in my stomach,

Until moonbeams shoot out my fingertips

Illuminating your path to the stars.

We dance on Saturn’s rings.

Pure bliss awaits us on a bed of stardust.
