of green woods and bright wa­ter

You are pretty with birds
on your arms. One day
I will startle them and
they will carry you into
the sky to see the heart
laid out be­low and feel
my smile in your hair.

v.2

You are pretty with birds
on your arms. One day —
star­tled into
the sky — 

A heart laid at
your feet —
a smile in
your hair.

  1. i re­ally like this. i like the con­fi­dent, mat­ter-of-factly tone, the un­ques­tion­ing logic of it. it feels a bit “se­cret” and in­ti­mate. i pic­ture a tat­too of birds that you fill with life through your love for the can­vas.
