Throws-his-words’ love songs for Fierce Cat

Warm wind in winter,
Cool breeze in summer,
She dances with the otters,
Twisting, splashing, diving,
And then she returns to me.

*

Sparks from my campfire
Fly up to join the stars
And tell them stories.

*

The moon and your reflection
Shiver in the windblown pool.
Calm the waters, beloved,
Beloved, calm the waters,
So they both can sleep.

*

Today is a day for standing.
Morning light,
Noon shade,
Evening stars.
Today was a day for standing.

*

Deep eyes flash.
Deep eyes thunder.
Deep eyes rain and rain and rain
Until morning.

*

Clouds dance
Their slow, beautiful dance.
Stars join in, but
Even more slowly.

    You have a very nice style of writing, I’m enjoying it greatly. The two I like best here are the campfire one and the one about standing, good writing.
