morning flower

you were the morning flower
I kissed by the stem of the moon,
a pattern of lilies etched
on the smooth surface of the night sky

snow-goose

snow-goose
a feather
I have,
one as soft
and as light
as the eyes
of my lover.

sea

sea
wrap your waves
around me
sea
comfort me
in your tales
of far away places
and distant faces
sea
let me ride
upon your valiant
white horses
sea
let me sleep
in you blanket
surrounded
by your dolphins,
seals and whales,
as I listen to their siren
calling me home
to the solace of my dreams
