Burlap and Satin Rewind

I’m awake by 6:00. While stars shimmer I jostle my husband Who sleeps soundly Upon dampened sheets. Tom is burlap While I am satin. Wishing myself out Of my cartoon pajamas I struggle lifting his Aged body from his bed. My back aches While I dress Tom Thinking of those satin Tahitian nights and Playful lagoon floating Over conch shells With my handsome Burlap man. Slideshow memories Of Satin and Burlap Times stamped in my Young 70-year old mind.

Oh, this moving poem deeply touched me. Your obvious devotion and the love that keeps your tired self in motion leap from each stanza in bittersweet jumps of ache, challenge and commitment. I will think of you, I know, this evening as I go about fixing dinner for the one I love and count our blessings. I'm so glad I found this. If you had a halo, there would be extra sparkles in it for all you do in the name of love. Poetry hugs ... CayCay
