Elementals

Locusts question my approach while
Hylas sings in etiquette splendor;
wishes live here, finding wings

Light weaves a thread of surrender while
sundust skips down the frond;
dreams live here, sketching time

Emotions run cool along the phloem while
immortal freedoms become amorous;
nubile maidens live here, keeping secrets

Desire pirouettes on the branch while
cadences envelope the canopy;
elementals live here, whispering life
