speak to me thru languages of noble trees
seducing flesh softly with feather fingers
vast sorrows seen with linking filters of blue
sealing eyes, stirring inducing, aching for you
birds move with beating hearts, as we rise
a doe bends a seedling for a taste of new
tears drop on silk pillowcase releasing sigh
turtle doves soar, their music sailing on by
