our shine

Writing prompt: Write a poem using Dickinson’s “Bring me the sunset in a cup” as a starting point

our shine

bring me the sunset in a cup

i’ll let you sip the last light of day

kiss your lips to illuminate then entwine our auras

our glow will rival full moons over Cairo

enticing the sun to shudder, blush

not rushing for our sighs are it’s rays rising songs

that muses pour into miniature vessels to adorn the wrists of the enchanted,chiming as they pray

if you bring me the sunset in a cup

i’ll let you sip the last light of day
