I want to be
A puff of wind in flight
Blowing into her innocent deer’s eyes

I want to be
Drops of morning ‘s dew so good
Lightly to fall, softening her hair roots

I want to be
A silly person
Waiting for lotus frail heels of a beautiful woman.

I want to be
In the Samara realms with hope
To be immersed in worldly love.

I want to be
The moon of the 16th night of the month
Shining light through her window curtain

I want my dream
Like falls, is set
purpose to run into my heart as it rains in buckets.

I want she’d be
The lover of my desire,
My own soul realms of poetry forever…
