"Love Snippets" is a series of whimsical poems devoted to the seemingly insignificant moments that make up the substance of a romantic relationship ... the "little" things that are, in all actuality, the frosting on the cake, and the best of what ties two people together.

Dinner out ...
A cozy booth at our favorite Japanese steak house
We had finished all but our apertifs
I took her hand, held it palm-up

Tracing soft circles there with my index finger
"Read this" I said, pretending to write a sexy phrase in her hand in cursive
"I didn't get it," she replied. "Do it again"
This time she got it, inhaling deeply and letting out a squeaky sigh

"How can you do that to me ... just by touching my hand?!?"
I looked at her, feigning a quizzical expression
"Do WHAT to you??" I pretended, (cat-and-mouse)
She pulled back a bit, squinting, a 'you can't fool me' look on her face

Taking my hand, she slowly moved it below the table
Tenderly placing it where no one could see
Where it was ... very warm
Very warm and ...

I gazed at her and smiled
She smiled back coyly, eyes twinkling intensely
"Check please!" we cried in unison
Giggling our way to the door.

There is nothing like the private conversation which does not include words between two lovers. You have expressed this so well. Sigh.

Thank you so much, Caren, I'm so pleased you liked this one ... this is my favorite genre, I think, the playfully sensual and fun, (or maybe tinged with darkness), so it's always a joy to write them. Blessings, Dear Poet! :-) <3
