Magic Nest

posted May 20, 2009, 11:33 AM by David Storlie

Your eyes meet the moonshine
open wider than a sunrise
with a wink as short as dusk.

When they happen upon mine
I really can't tell you lies
they see clean through my husk.

Stars settle into the hills
after dipping through the night
and deep into the wine,

With little between our wills,
celestial bodies passing out of sight
discover your hands in mine.

Blindly feeling where we laid
our blankets over grass's tiny wands
making a magic nest.

The sound of coming waves
wakes us on love's warm sands
with your head upon my chest.

But something divides us
as we trace our dewy path by light
and keeps your thoughts from mine.

Clearly seeing where we lost
our clothing in the course of the night
to block the bright sunshine.

Your eyes meet the new day
squinting just like starlight
blinking out from time to time.

We'll come again another night
before the dimming of our lives
and then our hearts will twine.

That night we'll cast our shades
into pitch over the skies
to light forever's day.

Your eyes are the moonshine
your hair is always night
and your skin's the milky way.
