Green Haven and You
I dream this early morning of
all you own for love.
Birds walk on water, cooing
lie buried beside the bank,
grey with decay, anonymous
as each fallen red-vein leaf.
walk to your favourite rock
still cold from night. There
ten stars in the sky
as ten snowy owls
undone by dawn.
dream of you across the vaulted miles.
You live inside my forming
smile and in
colours flooding the horizon, in
the almost-zenith sun,
