Asena

On the naked, ragged, edge you find me
Is this love?
We share the sudden friendship
of the nurse and the nursed

And in this holy dark
in this insulation of your care
I come to a healing, a new spring

Beautiful in play
scattered among the song
and new life of this forest

We become one
Entwined

And this devotion to one another
our children will bear forth
setting the world aflame
