what would the sky say to the earth
if such a story as love could be told
i would break open the cloud of my heart
to quench your body’s thirst
i would wrap myself around you and hold you softly
and make myself invisible – that you could see right through me
into the deep ocean of truth
as we dance together
through the kindness of the universe
back into the mystery
where you and i are one.
