"The heart has its reasons which reason does not know." -Pascal, Pensees, 1670


The breath of new spring,
Cool.
The movement of the porch swing,
Easy.
The turn of the pages,
Crisp.
The brush of the pen,
Light.
The thoughts ambling by,
Simple.

Your breath slow against my neck,
Patterned.
Your hand brushing back my winded hair,
Careful.
The back brushing against my cheek,
Deliberate.
The sun’s chilled breeze across my face,
Taunting.
Your mouth, hungry, craving mine.
Tempted.
Your lips grazing mine,
No longer worrisome. No longer withholding nature.

Shhh…the bird’s
Additional song.

this is so simple but so fulfilling. i feel like im sitting on the porch breathing the fresh air and waiting for the mailman to pass by...

and then it changes because i feel like someone is holding my hand holding me close.

such warm feeling. :)

Love it! You wrote so well here! btw, when you post favourites, the links don't work, they send u somewhere else, but thanks for that, I'm flattered! Otherwise, some of ur work would be on my favourites, but I've given up favourites. Anyway, I love the format in this poem, the descriptions and the one word that describes the descriptions. AMAZING!
