drifts without, dancing within/

drifts without, dancing within/

©2022 Michael Raven

finger-made pictures
in rippled picture window
barefoot in the frost
and lips cherry came kissing
hearth-birthed inamorata burn
rhythmed doumbek
that danse du ventre
glowing hot in the night

the wintering fells without
the gales strong push
threaten the night
but without inroads inside

i whiskey amber the dream
vanilla on my tongue
dragon breathing chest
aching, thrumming beat
of the drum beating burnt
the dancing in the night
