Poems of Love and Longing

The Message

I am calling to see
If you want to go
To the mountains
To see the leaves

Neither to touch nor to have
Only to see
This fall and the next
And the next
To see you, sweet like a bite of dark
Chocolate I imagine, you
Who listen with your heart-ear

Your share of the feast:
Is it the leopard?
Is it the angel with the golden wings?
Is it my voice?
