  • I can not send you ice
    but i will fetch the sun
    like prometheus
    i will boil the water
    into a crisp of delight
    i will squeeze a super-nova
    into the palm of my hands
    i will burn the sky
    blue like a kerosene flame
    i will quench the seas
    and all your desire
    i will turn to desert
    so wildflowers will bloom
    i will scorch the mountains
    to a pearl of sand
    a necklace for you
    even the moon shall
    melt upon my gaze
    from dawn to dusk
    i am light i am life
