Essence of Your Love

I saw you face your lover; you both made a pattern quite distinctive in the dark. The shadows on the window shade displayed two hands that met two others; formed an arc. The hands, from arms outreached, delivering their upturned palms that now together pressed, could not release nor stop their quivering, anticipation physically expressed. Then two who stood behind a window posed, at last fell trembling into love’s abyss. Love’s essence on the shade was then transposed as bodies touched and mouths met in a kiss. Your shadow with your lover's intertwined. A valentine pulsed on the window’s blind. By Andrea Dietrich/ Jan. 30, 2014 For the contest of Gail Doyle

    Loneliness, longing, love's pain, are all coiled together in this aching sonnet. A promise fell behind, somewhere. Bravo, poet!
