As the Earth is to the Moon

As The Earth Is to the Moon

In breath after breath

We dwell as a single shadow

Intertwined in mind

As the earth is to the moon

And to the overarching sky

There are many faces of our love

The longest shadows

Of a slow burning sunset

Evening birds awaking to life

The fragrant breath of the seasons

And the endless returning

Of waves to the shore

The ever-changing hues of heaven

This is the earth speaking

The dream that you are

The bees cling to the flowers

Black pools dance with raindrops

Branches are heavy with buds

The brook flows into the darkness

And just as the cycles of the moon

Send the snowflakes

And then the blossoms

Whirling through the blue

You open me gently

To the morning

You share the spark

You fan the flame

And set my waking hours on fire

In a language that is only ours

You slip into my thoughts

And I am melting

Like the gold of the sun

Into a welcoming sea
