handful of earth - Trevor Scott Barton

I love

the handful of earth

you are

as you lay

on your back

on the ground

under the angel oak tree

in the morning sun


I lay

between your knees,

on the wet earth,

kissing your thighs softly,

lips

lightly

brushing

skin


“Amo el trozo de tierra que tú eres,

porque de las praderas planetarias

otro estrella no tengo tú repites

la multíplicación del universo,” writes Neruda


I see. I hear.


Close

your eyes

to the stars

and feel

the width and depth

of the universe

inside

you
