Sunshine, Early Spring

A poem by Lily Selthofner.

Monarch Fragments by Lily Selthofner

once in a lifetime.

behind my eyes i lie

cheek to cheek with the holy portal.

press my face into the ground.

submerge me in your comfort,

knees rugged with pressure. 

a champagne glint draws me like a compass – 

heat between skin and clothes: disrobe.

unleash your hidden gold.

eyes squinting against my sunlight

as I finally wander 

through galaxies and prairies alike.
