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.

  • 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.
