A smile like the sunrise
Peering over Calibogue sound
Rouses him from other dreams where,
In arms as free as his
Longing, he rests peacefully,
And she wonders what he will do
when it rains.
Thoughts of darkness toss him
like a hammock in a hurricane,
but he recalls the fire within.
He knows he finds inspiration in the rainfall,
and he knows how to swim.
Swallowed by her light, though
He takes a breath
As deep as canyons
Just in case.
