Curiously strange
In middle black of night
Faint luminescence

The barest touch of your leg on mine

Shallow breath rise and fall
Rise and fall through
Known sweet taste of pink lips

The barest touch of a millimeter skin

What is being now
In the deep dark of this morning?

Curiously strange place
In our wild forest of together
Finding in the maelstrom ashes of consuming wildfire

Startlingly new
The nameless touching us new

Barest molecules of millimeter skin caress
One knowing, the other…

Dark night air currents touch
Body sensations complete electric
Unrestrainable, and yet, in check

Some tantric form of sleep?
Being now in moment

Curiously strange wonder of you
