Sole Witness


She lay face down
water lapped her skin
blue now from delphinium petals
laced around her sin

He parted the sea where she lay
traced his chin
coarse whiskers whispered
secrets she began

Their bodies rose
hovering the waves
lessons taught in verb usage
as their souls witnessed death

and of a life left obscure
while the grass grew around
two hearts as one
with a million eyes to watch

the atmospheric pressure
build bare hands to cover
private thoughts
and of heavens to come
