from the belly of a star,

form wittled 

by defiance of entropy,

i am captured 

in curved crystals 

cascading to the abyss.



by compression and time,

drawn taunt by the tide,

i am released 

by the surging waves.


integrity sustained 

through attraction,

lifted by atmosphere, 

descending in storm,

my subtle kisses 

will press your skin.


as i seep 

into your cupped hands.

drink deeply of me,

and i will re-surrect 

in your heart.


je me leve quand

je sais que je suis en vie.


i arise when i know

i am alive.
