Midnight Precedes- OldePunk/RamJet Poetry & Christine Ray/Brave and Reckless

Midnight precedes

The dawning of you

Shadows and peaches

Lavender and spices

Rare, honeyed tongue

Sings rapture

My soliloquy of you


Cool moonlight

Carves your shadow

Against stark walls

But you are smooth whiskey

Intoxicating to my parched soul

Cedar and pine

Warm earth against my skin


From earth it begins

Aquiline movements

Fostered by need

To travel without motion

Traverse the depths

Of the lilac and evergreen

Pools of your eyes


Sacred stolen hours

We claim as our own

We declare victory over the selfish god


In this indigo night

Where everything that is not us

Drifts away

Like silver dust motes


Writ of passage into

The deep dark

Where our secrets

Are kept by the verdant

Grasses and tall oaks

Cottonwood blooms scent

The air of our bonding


We explore our mysteries

Your hands

Clasping mine

Ground me

Connect me

To where our souls and

Bodies entwine

Our breath rising

And falling in unison


Born unto a full moon

Platinum and diamond

We are anointed

Holly and ash

Truth enchants

Incantation of love

As below, so above

Earth and heaven

Body and mind


As below, so above

Hearts and bodies

At last in repose

Held tenderly


Until dawn’s first blush
