As light begins to embrace darkness,
Dawn steals a kiss from the East
Woman, her skin parched and thirsty,
Calls out to her feet.
"Take us to the Apple Orchard.
There you can ~ dance upon the dew~
Perhaps, not as lofty a quest, as the ~ walk upon the water ~
But the ordinary is miraculous also, is it not?"
With great lust, amused and rowdy feet answer the call
And woman is caught up in a moment.
Her fevered lips press against delicate blossoms
And as she drinks the delicate perfumed elixir
She is taken beyond yesterday's grasp
