Elemental

Slowly, slowly, in tune with
Rhythm of wind, step,
Birdsong, we reach the crest.

The mists disperse.
Rimmed in sunlight,
You laugh raven-like;
Hungry eyes, hair unbound,
Creature of earth and sky.

In an instant the dam bursts,
Slaking our thirst
On the beckoning grass.
Hands softened by longing –
Free, free, free.

Exchange

I give you
My heart
And you give
Me yours,
We eat
In the heat;
Love feeds
The need.

I give you
My body
And you give
Me yours,
We feast
Like beasts;
Love spins
The skin.
