Her smooth fingers
Coat a car windshield
With sun-kissed cream.
Dipped in butter soap,
Sponges soak up dirt,
Reveal the lost glimmer.
She sprays hose-water
Like an April shower,
Onto the glossy hood.
Her shiny reflection
Meanders in droplets
Down metallic doors.
Froth tickles her toes
As a bubble of delight
Escapes from pink lips;
It frolics with soapsuds,
Dancing to the melody
Of her sweet laughter.

I'm looking at your poems can you look at mine? I've spent a lot of time recently writing them but near no one has viewed them besides myself.

You will find as you look back upon your life that the moments when you have truly lived are the moments when you have done things in the spirit of love.
Henry Drummond

This poem reminds me of when I wash a car and just whenever I have fun with water. It just totally gets all those emotions into one piece of poetry.

yes. So much imagery in this poem expands what you would normally envision when washing a car. Nice job.
