Dawn lays over the horizon

Like a broken-down addict

Here, in your flower garden

Desperate for a fix- I thirst  

I sit- in a plume of Jasmine    

My eyes closed- heart opened

Where my emotions meander

In my visual memories of you     

Higher- I rise in vibrant colors

Moments pass and I- I escape  

First are your hearty laughters

I sense your growing warmth

See your face, feel your embrace   

As your lips quench…my thirst
