The rhythms of night-soft whispers
Cast shadows of velvet fire-
The red glow of quickening embers
Remembers the darkest hours-
Surviving where life’s been abandoned
Parched desert ‘neath crying skies-
Those images forever emblazoned
On trembling, quaking minds-
Night-soft whispers’ life-blood’s beat
Voices soft and subtle as dawn-
Flushed and feverish, receding beneath
A velvet fire’s shadowy song-
Autumn rain like a lover’s hand
Waking and calming the earth-
Touch her breast of virgin sand
By fire give her rebirth-
Within the night-soft whispers
Beneath the dancing fire-
Silken touches unite, endure-
Throughout the darkest hours.
