On the ceiling two parallel streams of light
sparkling spectra rose red
blending with apricot orange,
followed by the yellow of the sun,
spilling into growing green,
the indigo blue of intimacy.
Two lying abreast – equal in length, strength and radiance: above on the rainbow-reflecting ceiling below those in the sheet-crumpled bed their morning place of meeting breathing in, breathing out.
Coming together glowing orange, sharper lime green, more delicate blue one ray emerges. Coming together desire and harmony soar skyward as bodies entwine their life-force fused.
