are you another true purpose I ought be crawling reverently to 
  are you swirl pattern-swearing-bearings of gods, goddesses 
    are you my eyes' surprises filing by, storing time(s)
       we laugh while trying 
          to catch our breath 
             your wet hair 
                is dry by now 
              not that it matters much 
             because everything 
            that I can see 
           just rains you 
        inside me 
      and we've 
     no umbrella 
    nor blanket 
   only intention 
  to feed 
 the rest 
 of the night with 
  so let's walk 
   from here 
    into Dawn 
     our dark 
      is hungry too

  1. Yay! Big-time bouncy-clapping for this. :)

    I am so stoked over the shaping. I kind of want to ride it ... and I typically hate those things!

    You did find the perfect image; that's awesome. She reminds me of that actress ... you see it? Ginnifer Goodwin. I just looked her up, via Mona Lisa Smile.

    1. I thought she looked like Emma Watson ... but they both have the archetypal pixie-waif guile scabbard flowering courtesan look of Spring ... and as for shaping the poem, I was leaning into the wind and the words followed filling spilling space and line ...
