My Body Carries: Love Haiku

my body rises

to meet you, trembling like

stardust before moon

*

my body moves forth

to greet you, grappling for

your earthly body

*

my body carries

desire for you in it

struggle, will, the way

Lullabye: Haiku for a Child

do you know the moon?

does it guide your dreams at night, 

soothe you while you sleep?

*

do you know the stars?

do they keep your dreams alight,

guide you through your sleep?

*

do you know your dreams?

do they keep your heart in flight,

rock you fast to sleep?
