angel

you can hold me
I am soft as thunder
to the touch, and as wide

you can drink me
like rain into your veins
and when your leaves spin in the wind
that is my soul inside you
dancing

you can see me
dressed in my essence
in clothes of light

and you can walk with me
hands cupped like bowls
clothed
only in your breath
in front of God

You infuse those leaves with your spirited words. I think I will be watching those leaves more closely, wondering who's spirit is in them at any given moment.

You've pared everything down to the essence of connection. Lovely images, as always.
