Ever so lightly

my fingers touch your living skin

I listen through them

to the pulse of your heart

the dance of your cells

your light swells

and lifts me

I am a buoy

on your waters

I float with your tide

singing a lullaby

ever so softly

my breath the wind, caressing

your breath the sea , rising

my mind a dove, soaring

your bones the stones, humming

your spine, my spine , intertwining

two sea serpents stretching

from molten core to central sun

two as One

spanning the galaxy

ever so lightly

ever so softly

breathing together

we fall apart

into the emptiness

my fingers still tingling....
