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.
