In the Nook

She came

From the raining clouds

She kissed my forehead

And breathed

“Patience…

Soon…”


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
