Sliding Glass

shoji glass

 

build her a cliff place…
precipitous
with sliding glass
and shoji panels,
and embrace her there
with songs and incantations
‘gainst wild Pacific rain.

lie together in down quilts
on cedar floors,
mingle kisses … laughter
and warm breathing,
infuse body fragrance
to sea air

Tuscany rose, fresh linen,
tangerines, new-mown grass
and bergamot, Moroccan leather
juniper berries … smoke

one space in time tide measured by the moon
and precarious to shatter
in each other’s arms
