Apollo

November 5, 2015

Your body gleams beneath the ripples, smooth
as lightbeams, soft as thunder rolling blue
through cotton storms and downy rainfall sheets.
Embraced in liquid warm transparency
and silent as a nightkiss slipping through
refraction, your ebullient body moves
in waves more musical than sound; it flows
exactly pure beyond all senses, bows
and turns, and rises from the water clear
and glowing, shedding diamonds in tears.

Your flesh is living marble, shaped and cleaned;
divine, and earth’s profoundly: your body gleams.
