Ekphrastic poem

I saw them there that night
circling round
hand in hand, heart in heart
enjoying the wildness.

They worship me
mesmerised by the
depth of my beauty.
Hypnotised by my eternity.

I licked the sky
higher and higher
fuelled by their adoration.
I licked their downy fur
gave warm familiar pleasure.
I licked their shadows away
fed their intensity.
