Rain pearl lily
Rain pearl lily by Keikei

one
drop
of her
on the tongue
the heart
just overflows
a garden of
rain in leaf
and water
twirl
to which
she is
the
wand
my rain
pearl
girl
o
o
o
one drop
of her
on the lip
on the tongue
enough to make
me drunk
one drop of
her’s a mist to
lose a forest
in to find a
kingdom where
a hair of breath’s
enough to open
all doors and
the heart’s
a lily there
with humble
bee upon
the stem
a white unfurl
to bed that
drop of
rain
pearl
girl
o
o
o
more
warmth
than any
precious thing
has held
more greys
and opalescent
greens than any
ocean gave in
stormy light
one drop
to grow my
years with her
my rain
pearl
pearlescent
girl
