Magic Nest

Post date: May 20, 2009 6:33:11 PM

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.
