wood snails dangle,

gold-drop jewels

condensing light

through the forest milieu

angles painting a view

of morning river


i shiver

and rinse the film

from my skin

as i feel you peering in

for we are the reflection

of our inner kingdoms

an awareness beyond trust

this tender submission

as i rise to the power

of recognition

and invite you in

to a shared diffraction
