You Autumn cloud come between the sun
so bright, your tracery of vein, flesh white
wide eyes flash concupisence, orbs coruscant of light.
In your umbra, plasma-shot, my skeleton is dry
a planetary wander of emotion
swung upon a course through complex gravities
the past my surface impact-cratered
steep with seed, yet barren oceans.
Be my oceans, cover me your water
somewhere shallow, somewhere deep
fill my valleys laughing, weather mountain peaks
snow cold above Spring's eager blossom.
Be my oceans, grow loving plankton green
and raining in upon you, I will be your seas.
