I float

Overhead
A cloudless blue ceiling
Beneath
Buoyed by liquid hands
Warmth imparted from a star
Butterflies dip and feed
Roosters bleat
I float

Full moon
Illuminates a black vault
Reflects
Off a skin slick as mercury
Heels on golden sandstone
The banyan tree shivers
Gecko hollers
I float

Refresh
Clouds rupture in the dusk
Arrows
Strike and slap my face
Alone but not lonely
Lightning fractures
Thunder groans
I float
