All light waves white
pulsing gently down through the long armed
blue dome stretching its hands around the Earth
elbow deep in night.
The man the woman hands clasped
come starting midnight
to watch from under the sky
as outside the dome
dancing within vision's reach.
Sun imbeds day,
moon imbeds night.
Stroking through each beat & breath
a winding spiral as ulna and radius trace
in forward motion to grasp
within our arms from outside.
Time only shifts.
Held face to face with small hands
hinged on one another turning
overlapping circles. Watching eyes
stand by or pace a step each ticking.
In undoing a particular embrace
in time all feet move differently.
Sky's hands rolling in night press
a building form from the washing stillness:
full moon babe crowning
in absence of fierce light
belly to belly passing into the shroud.
Only weather clouds
carried in rocking atmospheric arms
have such subtle luminosities
of light touching first
teardrops of awaking.
