And A Night Bird Trills


oh, the stars
the electric blue pulse
of your lips
pulling my skin
oh, this lifetime
in your hands -
wandering an ageless path,
swimming an ancient sea, then
wrapped in
all the arms and legs
of a thousand gods,
my bones shatter
as a universe
streams within

and a night bird trills

  1. Wow! What a sound —"my bones shatter as a universe streams within"

    And then the next sound.

    Nice!
