The Cloud

you plough
through the darkening cloud
stealing the moon

like the smart neuron of the soul
you turn on the light
pulling the golden strings of time

it’s the longest night
in Findon
tears of the refugee

you cross the Rubicon from
refugee to citizen
tasting the dream sublime

you’re the Eve of desire
veiled in mystery
feeding my longing in silence

the sunbeam flirts with
the moon
daring to dream again
