Is This How Gods Make Love to Mortals

Cast into heaven
with the violence of childhood
and the innocence of birth
where I swam with the grace
of dolphins in a cosmic sea of
of dark blues mingled
in the black and gold of Lapis lazul.
The night sky
like the pearl sheen
of abalone illuminated by galaxies
and stars that flowed over me
with the warmth of goddesses
who caressed my nakedness.

I thought to myself,
is this
how gods make love to mortals?

  1. Hey, I love this poem–a short one–crisp, to the point. A wonderful alternative note to the more serious roots notes of your work.
