Love Poem: nature, human -

nature, human -

I breathe you
      into my depths
          sighing ...
               like winter's chill
                   whispered to the spring ...
                      I hear you
                        inside ...
                      like silence ...
                   I feel you,
               tempering my blood
          reshaping my desires
      you ...
my alter-essence.
