i dreamt we were two suns following each other thru unending night


she asked me for a story

so i told her of our father

truths too numerous to lie.


with fewer words

we spoke them all.


along this journey

kneeling by a spring

reflecting on the sky


without ambition

beyond warmth.


some call this love or fire.


how could i slay my

friend to gain a meal.


knowledge became survival.


we are water and

you taught me well.


i left her only as blood

from the heart. and to

return as winter turns

to spring. the way a tree

might leave as shelter

for some bird in song.
