Spring's effect on me...or 'giraffe nuzzles'..




                                                                                                                      
Rain on my face saves me -
cucumber grass
cools my soles
 ..evening citrusy air 
hangs
like lacy moss 
on a myrtle tree
- angels walk among us 
in everyday attire
Hearts bleed
for other hearts,
joints swell; bodies 
writhe under 
cascading water, rippling 
along sullen earth
..turning my mind
to the great notion 
........of flying
like a sparrow from 
eaves to the sea
against sunset skies;
filling me up 
with an obsessive desire 
to receive 
close up 
giraffe's nuzzles, 
wet baby kisses -
swim in cool 
coconut milk, drink
lemon tea with bitters 
and taste
the berries of summer...

  2. I love the way you begin this poem: " Rain on my face saves me." It is refreshing, isn't it? And cleansing as well, I find.

    And I love thinking about the possibility of giraffe nuzzles and tasting the berries of summer. Summer cannot arrive soon enough. Smiles.
