Other Glimpses

Blush
Rising heat and flush
Quickened breaths catch and release 
Caught out red-handed

Wisdom
Don’t pull and don’t push
No wiggling and no forcing
Fish hook barbs set deep 

Rhythm
Though deaf the woman
Feels the percussion and beat
And begins dancing

Colored
Hands rest on white sheets
Flesh so pink for one called white
Pink is a color

Comfort
One look warm and kind
One look critical and cold
Comfort comes in waves

In the Garden 
Summer night party
Fairy lights, drinks and laughter
Hide his touching her

Humming
Beat eggs, sift flour, mix
Now the dough must sit and rest
She waits, hums softly
 
Shadow Play
Light seems to flicker
Off then on,  first there then gone
Curtains stir at night
