love's darkness

what holds the birds
in the sky
is love
its gentle roundness
pushing upward

and the restlessness
in your eyes
is love
still traveling the maze
of your heart

and when you lie
in the warm curve of the earth
here is love's darkness
holding the sun's late rays

running clear
like sap
through your empty cells
dusting your skin
with sweetness

Firebird, this is very beautiful. It moves me.

(If I might take a small liberty, consider removing "it" from the third line. )
