An Offering

The amber of your eye
Like star-fall
Collected by bees
From sacred plants.

Lost in a labyrinth
Deep in the wild
Delighting in the sweet
Discovery of Melliseus.

We wander here
A heady perfume encircles
Immune to danger
A quiet buzz.

Warm bodies arrive
Whispering to us
Through salt-tears
We never leave.
