My Ultimate Romantic Dinner

Those who dream by day are cognizant of many things which escape those who dream only by night.
~Edgar Allan Poe (from Eleonora)

My Love Reveals Objects
by Isabel Fraire

my love reveals objects
silken butterflies
concealed in his fingers

his words
splash me with stars

night shines like lightning
under the fingers of my love

my love invents worlds where
jeweled glittering serpents live
worlds where music is the world

worlds where houses with open eyes
contemplate the dawn

my love is a mad sunflower that forgets
fragments of sun in the silence

(Much better in the original tongue)

Feels like I step on fortune cookie!
...That no cookie!

Your dearest wish will come true.

(That I would cook of course.)
