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.
