do you dream of the way your hands sing, soft as violins, vivid & wild?
do you wake up to the sun playing hopscotch on your floor?
knowing all of this is yours, all of this is you:
glimmering and golden,
the heart of july.

and so i can only call you summer child
and nothing else anymore, nothing less than that - nothing less lively
than the wild of summer, amalgam of burning and dark, the nurture and scorch, resurrection in rain,
the sound of wind swaying grass
soft as violins.

do you sink into warmth like water and remember yourself? swimming lily,
swan-necked, storm-eyed, precious
enough to turn rain into pearls, days into poetry.
show me more of your fragments, your shatter, your fragile
fiery victories; more of sundays, and how they swirl around cups of coffee gone cold
over love you lost yourself in like others in train stations
that are treasure chests to you. to you, there are treasures
everywhere, everywhere the gleaming gold - reflected,
your glitter and gold
and heart of july in jubilance.

now summer child,
will you open your harmony hands?
here i have a wish that is wearing your name:
may you never touch the ground
- except as sunshine to dance between leaf-shaped shadows.
wrapped with love,
my congratulations to calliopen

(inspired by a lot of things, like those letter poems we wrote each other two? years ago, the beautiful meaning of your name, journals you posted recently ...)
