for my daniel

 

can i just fall into your ocean, my love?

wrap your water arms around me

let the currents be still

not carry us away?

let us be here

in our underworld happiness

make time stop and not let the storms push their way in

stay in this pocket of warm-water-light to savor

the taste of having

of loving and making…

will your strong arms banish the pirates

who mean to steal away what is left of our sweet supper

take away in pieces what a lifetime took to sew?

let them pass over us in their mean ships

find another shore

let us be invisible to the fisherman’s hook

leave us here to sway

and dream starfish color

look for seashell poems

sing love fish songs together

forever, as big as the sea

safe in the refuge of your ocean arms
