A love poem

I Give You       


This tree's dripping fruit

to place in your mouth

to ripen your tongue.


The water guttering down

these green leaves

to be a trellis of fingers

about you.


This soft drizzle of sunlight

to fall gentle as the petals

of meadowsweet on your cheeks.


This bindweed and all tendrils

to hook and bind

our desires together.
