beauty in nature

she

threaded her way
in between
the nervous system
of impulse and adoration
wriggled her way
deep into the marrow
to imprint tiny breaths
upon every
red blood cell
speeding
through a vascular system
punctuated
with her every whim
snaked deep
inside the soft tissue
so each movement
bore her wonder
inked her name
upon my very flesh
so that
the billions
of small reminders
could never be forgotten
seared her smile
onto my cornea
so that every blink
became a panoramic
of her vestige

as if

the twinkling stars
the lonely moon
the waves
kissing the rock
the gentle breeze
the rays of light
were not enough
of a reminder
that beauty exists
in nature

like her
