BEGIN IN THE DARK
Abigail Albrecht

Begin in the night,
soft rain falling,
the fingertip rain
dripping down from
the sultry sky.
Begin in the dark,
candleless lovetime,
begin your search
to find me in the dark.
Reach out, roll over,
encompass me naked,
lie here in the pool
my warmth, my sleep.
Become the music
that dances inside me,
become the bright wave
I swim into when
I close my eyes.
You are the sea in my dream,
bright sky in my morning,
your love is the wheel
that turns me toward you
and encircles my heart
with your heart.
