THE KISS (a poem for my husband)


temp-post-image

I still remember the feeling I felt


When we first kissed…


I remember the spot my feet pressed into on the stairs


How the light held its softness


In the space around us…


So still


Was everything but my heart.


I remember the way your shoulders turned


As you leaned into me


The tilt of your face


And the scruff of your cheek


And your incredible smell…


You smiled as our lips met


And you pressed into me


All iron and ocean


At once indestructible and immoveable


and yet caressing, fluid and all encompassing


You wooed me with the promises you made me with your eyes…


Your kiss filled me with hope


the swell of your presence overwhelmed me


The power of your arms immured me


I felt you were invincib...

AROMA PART II (a poem for my husband

This is the second poem in a 4-part series on the concept of AROMAS… Good things, bad things, Great Things.

All of my life I fringed about


lost in the dark places


the lonely spaces


of dank and dire


Until you…


Hard to describe your breath


sweet and masculine


always sweet


like the very air in your body


was laced with sugar and metal


like your lungs were


uniquely designed


to turn my pollution


into purity.


I first noticed it


at our first kiss


as you held my face


you inhaled


all my doubt


and wanderings


and exhaled all over me


the sweetest


longings


for me


to give you my heart


forever.
