but as the gentle slate sky
of a summer's

in the inlet's arms
I will lean
into your invisible
comfortable presence

I definitely love this one. "little grey kisses"—best line of the poem, in my opinion. And how you express your deep love for this poem. You have a talent for expressing emotion without becoming overly emotional. 5 stars.
