Our Woven Terrace to the Stars
(for DC)

Our woven terrace
led to the stars.
Below, a lush forest of fragrant
fig and plum trees blossomed,
their seeds exploding in the heat.

When you held me
tightly in your arms,
the fire of our fulfillment
melted any separation,
and every enchanted moment
led to new wonders.

Now that you have departed,
I feast on the memories
of our intimate adventure.

Our terrace led to the stars.
And so did you.
I took your lead,
and some secret realm
was discovered.

We became ever closer
while the forests burgeoned
and the heavens bloomed
from our fertile seed within.
