Shivers

Ashes adrift in cold breezy whispers 
Mesmerized Monday finally seen 

So I sat here/there fingers achingly tapless over blurred keys. 
Wetly wondering in salted moving air... 
Clouds huddle together crowding for position- 
avoiding the ever sinking sun 
Welcoming darkness impatient in the wings.... 

Soon .....well soon enough words would dribble- 
dropping double entendres in croissant swirls. 


Darting and daring to form movements 
creating caresses to shiver- 

shudder tingle spine touches... 
tuning vibrating space in distant time 
timely distance 

springing to spark the awe of appreciation 
begging for light to guide them

    Shimmering verbs, vibrating movements, dynamic imagery ... gosh, you are good.
