The Second

The next kiss,
I as your guide, my hands on yours,
guiding into woods, through dappled sunlight,
among moaning trees, cracking leaves
the scent of life breaking, birthing, burning.

The wind that howls
and shakes the leaves,
the rain upon the trees –
my fingers curled in your hair
time without end.
