longing as I was
to taste your awakening
sleep stole my intent

May i interrupt You for A Kiss?

IMG_3909walking by the couch I saw you sleeping
i could hardy keep my hands away
i wanted to tap you gently on your shoulder
“may i interrupt you for a kiss? ”

the walk was so exhausting
the breeze and sun combined
the hills were steep
and trees, so tall …
but you didn’t lag behind

because you sleep so soft now,
i think it’s only fair
i ask before i wake you,
“may i interrupt you for a kiss?”

i walk around real quiet
trying not to ‘wake you’
but doing dishes can get loud
and, the calls i have to make …
although … there’s just a few

really … you’re still sleeping,
how do you do that?
though i love to see your soul at peace …
“may i interrupt you for a kiss”?

 

 

silk

‘silk –  fine threads of fibre often woven into cocoons for protection by silkworms.   
 luxurious, resilient and, extremely strong’.

love, a precious strand of silk, weaves through our lives binding hearts together

vulnerable, in the shadow if it’s strength,
we strive to keep it weaving all the time.

 

Hot

Hot headed
hot tamale
hot under the collar.
Hot and cold
…you are to me.

Hot as Hades
hot ticket
hot property… (you are).
I’d like to own you

Whew, it’s getting hot in here
is it my hormones… or the beer?

No, I think it’s all this heat,
when you are here, fans can’t compete
with all the cheering and the screams,
that stir the coals, that burn so deep,
reminding that I’m hot for you.

Minutes passed while she waited for one last kiss. As she juggled from foot to foot, the anticipation of lateness, and a crowded, jarring, morning commute, only frustrated her more. Then, a warm hug, soft lips embracing deep, and real. She got to the station just as the train was slipping away into the dark tunnel, and she watched it ride away, with a twinkle in her eye.
