You were given to me last night
Never seen your face before.
A blur of movement, but precise-
legs, mouth, lashes, hands.
Large sapphire souls shone, stared through me.
I am blind
I have never seen you!
No color-just blueness.
So loud was your peace
So clear was your smile
I will melt when you arrive,
I will die just to touch.
No longer in control-you’ve caught me with that intent.
Now I taste you in my mouth:
Fresh freedom, cool calm, new hope.
I see you in every convincing cloud of blue, every reflecting
I hear your soft, strong sounds calling me-
In the stillness of my breathing and the beating of his heart.
Every swift slow movement I make,
All in the shaking anticipation of your arrival into these waiting,
