Invocation to a Dream

Remember how you lift me from the earth
and take me to the windows where the light
is soft upon the snow, the new moon’s birth
illuminates the drifts, translucent white.
Remember how you kiss my darkened eyes
and give me breath beneath transparent seas.
Remember how each moment in disguise
portrays a carnal fantasy.  Oh please
remember depths of revelations’ joy
discovered in the morning when I wake,
before mundane intrusions can destroy
the wisdom only gods like us can make.
Surround me in my self-abandoned state
where memories are slow and time is late.
