Even in the early morning sunlight
your sensuous lips bring the stars out
from dark hiding places.
(How they burst
like summer fireworks
above the swaying rope bridge
of my chaotic mind.)
And your eyes
with their otherworldy glimmer,
they strike like a double solar eclipse
into the core of my being
Enraptured by the moment
when your lips possess mine,
I am suddenly swallowed and digested
by the captivating splendor of sunrise.
