In dreams, I flow timeless

Marc Chagall, The Wedding, 1944

In dreams, I flow timeless

We wanted to be sun-drunk,
lazy as rocks, measuring time in eons

bare skin, the scent of ripe peaches
in the air–

shadows urged tiny storms,
and after, and after

the sky
endless,

the sea still beating time,
the heart to land’s lungs

and we, not rocks,
pulsing, breathing,

dancing to the fiddler’s music,
falling when it stops.

My poem from the Oracle.
