“Liquid Song, Rose and Rhythm” by David Ellis

Your language calls
Liquid song
Variations of the sea
As if from distant wind, waves, clouds
The whisper of the shore
Bubbling from mouth
Flowered, poured into air
Pure, of sympathy, understanding, wonder
Swimming, in moon molten
We found a deeper, roaring bond
Shared, lingering passion
Where rose and rhythm
Coloured life
Guided by the taste of warm desire
Your wings spread out, cover us
