cascade

it consumes my entire being, a galaxy unto itself, with scorching stars and pirouetting planets...


my love

for you,

spills out,

in an endless, frenzied waterfall,

flowing in cascades

of silky sage strands

that catch the delicate, drifting

shards of sunlight

that sprinkle like fresh snow.

it consumes

my entire being,

a galaxy unto itself,

with scorching stars

and pirouetting planets

aimlessly adorning

its endless expanse.

it washes

everything away,

drowns my writhing demons,

wipes my slate clean,

until i am nothing but

abounding

peace.
