Spring Rains

I knew him as surely
as dry prairie soil
recognizes the rain
after a long drought

My body and mind
had thirsted for him;
soaking him up until
my soul was sated

His voice, soothing
balms, familiar as
the very sound of
my own exhalations

I folded myself into
him, this other self;
as his love restored
life to my dead places
