Unexpected muse – oscillating
in chiaroscuro tangos,
moon dance, fireflies, shifting light,
manifest yet amorphous in the night,
mysterious source, ambiguous arrivals,
A cracked piano in an old cafe,
waltz of anima and shadow,
words whispered – veiled metaphors,
images sent – fragments revealed,
suggested interplay of possibilities,
glimpses of visions.
Weaver of dreams, I recognize
those doors that open in your eyes,
the glittering fish that part your lips,
and the tangled webs of art and Eros
that search my hands, my head, my sleep,
and in the deepest dark of me
something is remembered
