Black Feather Tattoo

A black inked feather tattoo,
Spanning his spine,
Brushed in nightshade,
The wings of a hawk in flight,
Across bronzed skin,
And anchored to the skies,

Undone, by the coolness of her lips,
The taste of raindrops, to kiss,
The silhouette of her body,
Below the moon,

Her inked tattoo,
Fanning across her back,
Midnight black,
A sketch of the sky,
A dove in flight,
Wings spread in arching quall,
Feathered and quilled,
Pendant of light,

Tangled in the stars,
Asleep in the clouds,
In the sky.
