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?
