working my way thru

as i contemplate
what binds our wrists
i remember worms eat mulberry leaves
turn to moths
are drawn to fatal flames
and leave behind
fine silk
that could bedrape our bodies
like love around our souls
you are the sacred circle
around within intersecting
with my own
let me praise the full moons
of our love
kneel low
and kiss your dusty feet
my beautiful sister
for lifetimes still to come

- Bernedette Muthien
(7 January 2005 - for Yvette Abrahams, on her birthday)
