creatures who understand light

perhaps somewhere…

there are creatures who understand light

it streams up from their heads

as if their minds are the mist and the mist is their thoughts

and where their hands might be

is a beautiful waterfall of light

and their bodies don’t have legs

they simply glide like clouds

these creatures don’t have hearts

because their whole bodies are infused with love

and they touch each other

with sleepy breaths

their kisses are slower than the drift of mountains

embraces curved in marble

we feel their gentle ripples
