Colors of Love

Listen to poem:
Our fingers interweave, like a key in a lock The tumblers click into place, and the world opens Warm, orange glow between our hearts Coursing down our arms to each other, tearing through The amber cocoon around my inner being, awake again to Your beige perfection, my scarlet, grateful unworthiness And the vibrant greens and blues around us Your fluid grace and power unmask your freckles: The rosettes of a leopardess, proud and powerful Tan skin and graceful lines, at once camouflaged Yet with a profound presence that welcomes me Your mocha eyes lock with mine, and the energy flows In a growing crescendo of electric blue and yellow Between us in a complete and perfect circle again 6/8/16 © by Author
