Leaving Valencia

Chasing movement

In this sunny courtyard

Draped in yellow stucco

Full of birds and greenness

Caught between the next place and your perfect brown body

Painted by the warm Spanish rain

It seems an eternity

Since your smile broke in upon me.

I have been apart too long

From my lonely wandering, but then

You dip your hands into my silent emptiness

Feeling the solitude drip between your fingers

The sound falling into your happy moan

Which escapes between parted lips

To kiss my face.
