In Dreams

In dreams
I love you
till the sun turns black

till minute hands
give up,
fall loose and slack

till the timbers
in your voice
have long stopped to crack

to the edge
of the sea
when full sails tack

turn back,
anchor sterns,
beach bows,

till my feet
touch sand
and lips speak vows,

and praise the ground
each night in turns
you attract and arouse

until the day
allows
this track

I wake
and wait
till my heart comes back

  1. This is such a good image: “till minute hands
    give up,
    fall loose and slack”

    Nicely done.
