I seek the fruit trees intimacy

he doesn't seek mine, he needs water

my soul needs the wine made from

the treasures he flaunts on his vine.

The fruit tree his dreams are too deep

with an unclosed eye he watches me and

his treasures as he sleeps. About me he

dreams watching time steal my history as

I become an echo in its slipstream and I

will not steal his fruit as time steals

from me, I will wait for the wind to shake the

tree as the winds of time strip me.
