Light Becomes You

I felt you shiver in the snow

With beads of moonlight peppered on the road

The fall had left its fingernail scratches all over the trees,

And how this tickle in my skin could pull me light years back to thee;

And the most important moment was when I felt you shiver.


Help me know how to fight

The fading of the day back into night.

The beauty of the air outside this visceral cocoon

Is the illuminated breathing of the cherubim in bloom.

And I still envision your radiant design.


Light becomes you

All I see and all I feel
