before you

skin undulates

peaks and troughs

rise and fall


your light explorer’s touch


a feathered frolic of fingertips

lingers by lace seam

a candle

hold it closer for blissful scrutiny



punctuated with sudden gasp





the flame to see by

invites flames to dream by

  1. ❀ ❀ ❀ Did I not say I would relish in your words? Reading you is pure joy! Your poetry is like soft fire, animating hearts and burning out whatever could be in the way. In those moments, when you read a text and there is just the words and the images, the sensations they convey, when everything else disappears – almost even you – that is just the best feeling! And you bring that feeling with your words. It is too late for me to flee now. I am an acquired fan πŸ™‚
