Luminaria

Night’s body submits
to daybreak’s caress.
The sun slides over
the shoulders of the hills.
Light enters the valley
and travels in waves,
warming the skin of the river.
Surrender to the senses,
savor the taste, the touch.
I am the valley, the hills,
the night. You are the heat,
the light of a rising sun.
