We Are But


You and I

You are wind,
And I am but a dust:
In the air,
We waltz;
On spheres,
We roll.

You are flame,
And I am but a wick:
In orange,
We spark;
In blue,
We light and burn ‘til weak.

You are mountain,
And I am but a cloud:
We make love
In the rain;
We conquer drought,
The aches and pains.

You and I–
We are but
Robe-less king and queen
In this love-full ‘dom underneath
The white, crisp secret-filled linen sheet.
