The Soundtrack to Your First Embrace

My response to dVerse Poets Pub Tuesday Poetics: The Sound of Love. This evening Walt has challenged us to explore the SOUND of love.

You fold your arms around her

With a whisper of wings,

Your breath in her ear

Like sea in a shell, washing

A distant shore and yet so near.

Your heart gallops,

A startled stallion

Running for cover,

Unsure of your lover,

Holding her with bones that creak

Like sails on a galleon.

Clothes rustle

As your fingers brush her face

In your first embrace.
