“Yours is the light by which my spirit’s born ….” ee cummings


There is no dys in the topia of 
my heart where you're concerned,
your ample fullness fills my
darkly mind with tingled pulses of
rhythmic, to the bone sensatiopns, 
that caffeinate my hours with a 
cornucopia of luminous astrologia
that simply makes me dizzy.

    Beautifully rendered. Love is the logic of the stars: “luminous,” dizzying.
