Solar Wind

i smelled the sun
the other day
scent fierce
like face melt heat
flooding ice
water flow
from edges
of my heart

release

scorched bones
and singed skin
recite surahs
softly marking
burnt kisses
on my neck
eyelids
and hands

receive

the hottest
gust stream
promises
cardamom dust
and particles
of you
inside me

sun struck
i smell love
