HYMNAL

Still
Room
Alone and empty
Lovers lying together

She
Whispers to him quietly
In the silent moment
Of midnight

Her
Words weave about him
Speaking of things
She has seen and heard
Her life

He
Touches her
Holds her
Healing the things
That remain unsaid
Unspoken

They
Move together
Dancing in the waters
Limbs entwined
In elegance
Breathing
Shimmering light

Moon
Slow and drifting
Shines in the darkness
In gentleness
Filling the room
With wisdom

Air
Kisses
The bedclothes
With sound
Of voices and song

Fire
Glints in her eyes
Prayers
Offered in silence

He
Touches her forehead
Rocks her to sleep
With sighs
