VI- Orchids on the Table

How did we land here
nose to nose
upon this bed, orchids on the table

our love tastes sweet

through the window beaming
orange light
bathing our holy skin
exposed
each hair standing on your arm
it’s own silhouette
gently twirled around
my finger

beyond the cream white curtain
cool crisp air
February breezes rustle the limbs
of trees

at peace I do not hear 
but your breathing
in the darkness, movement of your chest
matches mine

and I drift.
