haiku for fingers and toes

Clouds caress the night ~
just like your morning fingers ~
dancing on my chest

Fingers weave through air ~
narrative images weave ~
into tapestry

Curled toes on the beach ~
and light that fills up the sky ~
your green eyes in bloom

Tip toe through morning ~
on the other side of sleep ~
in a short sharp breath

Las nubes magrean la noche ~ 
justo como su maƱana manosea ~ 
el baile en mi pecho

des nuages caressent la nuit
come tes doigts de matin
dansent sur ma poitrine

 Wolken kosen Nacht
wie deine Morgenfinger
auf meiner Brust tanzn
