Unmeasurable

close my bosom,
i hold you 
a new born star,
one summer eventide 

delicate petal hands,
wrinkled pink pearls
clutch my eager heart,
surely like day and night

weaving, i breathe in
your angelic faith, white 
as dewdrops on moon lilies
and i am humbled by your gift

a mother of beginnings, 
i want to be to you,
like warm river beds  
nuzzling green rice stalks

bluest deep, reddish blooms
my arms will cradle 
for you    

boundless joy  

unmeasurable
