Regenerating Leaves

Regenerating Leaves

 

September, 1989

Long walks under autumnal trees

juice bars, movie dates

and a feeling You regenerate Me,

change Me,

has begun 

 

 

Float Like My Heart

Float Like My Heart

 

April, 1990

____________________________________________________________________________

 

The smell of My molecular attraction

to nature, sky,

and You

transforms My beating heart

and You make My blood flow and float

 

 

Milk Vases

Milk Vases

 

January, 1991

____________________________________________________________________________

I’ve placed cuttings

in milk vases,

water vessels for life.

Thank you for producing My oxygen

I remain in Your airy wake

 

 

Bleeding Heart Flower

Bleeding Heart Flower

 

March, 1991

____________________________________________________________________________

 

You stabilize Me

and waste My oxygen

I settle into our seasons together

wearing Your ring on My finger

all that clings to You

gives Me what I need

in a binding love note
