  • In his flowing breath
    and her quiet eyes
    the night's mystery
    enfolded in dying

    Their bodies seemed
    liquefied as falling
    waters down into dark
    silence, where hurt
    feelings drown

    Love can heal
    the worst of pain
    like land in drought
    is healed by rain

    The night's mystery
    enfolded in dying
    moonlight, in his
    flowing breath and
    her quiet eyes
