Light falls like rain, stains the dark.
I’m helpless, without speech;
your soul becomes the blue of my eyes.
Forgive me if I stray—To you.
You smile, and no wars ever were.You hold time in place, erase the hands.
I’m overcome, filled with adoration;
my soul becomes the brown of your eyes.
Forgive me if I write these words—To you.
You speak, and the otter shakes a whisker.You enchant me, a sea horse ballet.
And I swim, deep where tears shed;
now my poetry breathes under oceans.
Forgive me if I expose my heart—To you.
(From the book Kairos)
