Stars in a Glass.

Who told
water
how it should feel
to the skin,
sliding down
like drops of silk?

Who told
a rose
how it should
open,
or how its petals
should feel like
velvet
to the touch?

Who told
the night
to honor the moon,
and the ocean
to shimmer
its light
like stars
in a glass?

Who taught
the birds
the notes
to their songs,
and decided
that they should
float
above it all
on wings?

If love
did all of that,
why do we
still question
what it can do?
