All Rivers and Lakes

because you are so slight
i wonder if your feet
leave footprints in the sand
because you are made of light
you could illuminate
a barn, a shrine, a field of grass

because your touch is so deep
it passes through the whole of me
because your kiss is music
from interplanetary space
i am deposited weightless
on a lunar landscape

because your soul is liquid,
your eyes contain all rivers and lakes
because your lips are petals,
they part at the touch of mine
