In the Nook

She came

From the raining clouds

She kissed my forehead

And breathed



Unfurl me slowly

Make me your woman

From this terracotta child

All in due course

In the meantime

Lay me down

For hours

In the undergrowth

Plant your seed inside

The world of our love

Turning so unordinary

Let me live here

In the greeting

Of our spirits

My body moist

With nectar
