Tsunami Wave

Last night
Instead of counting your sheep
My shepherd
I examined your golden necklace
For clues to your beauty

Silent you remain
My Beloved
All these years
All this geography!

To Buenos Aires and back
Up the Pyramids of Sol y Luna
To the temple of Athena

Traipsing around the globe
In my champagne wedding dress
Draping the tattered satin over the Coliseum wall

Sweeping the train up ancient Aztec strides
Uniting Heaven and Earth
Scaly face of the winged serpent
The snout of his dog twin

Excavating your beauty
Like an ancient relic
In my body
Awaiting your feverish clinch
To be reborn

The cycle of emotion
Tearing the fabric of my dress
Ocean, Vapor, Dew, Fountain
Lapis Lazuli wave of Aquarius

And there you were last night
After all these years
All this geography!
Oceans to be crossed
Between stanzas
In our epic journey

Clouds vaporizing in my dream
Depicting your innermost thoughts
In a letter
Meant for someone else

The morning dew
Facing the sun at 10 past 8
I celebrated your beauty
In a prayer to Inanna riding swiftly in her crescent boat
The Moon and Venus colliding with your Taurus

Three vessels riding the current
To the alchemical fountain
Lost bride seeking her shepherd
With paper and pen

The Spring Equinox
The third gate of Inanna’s ascent
Genitals to Solar Plexus
Radiating the beauty
Transported through ancient sites
To my body

And now it is noon,
The Sun caressing skin
Through Curley’s front window
As I scribble this sonnet to you
Yes, to you

Awaiting our blessed union
Like donkeys mating in spring
Says Elena, the proprietor
Born on May Day

Your beauty
Flowing in me
The contents of your letter
Spilling over the page
Ode to the Beloved
Runneth two eggs over easy

The yellowing
Of yolk
Solar plexus fusion
Rusted iron transmuting into gold
Seed fertilizing the land
Flooded by the Tsunami wave
