elicit thoughts

as i sit here my thoughts thunder in with the eventide the orb of night lights a path as i walk along i watch my shadow dance tree limbs reach towards me i can almost feel your hands touching me tonight's air is warm like your breath as it falls against me i hear the ebb of your breathing mingled within this slight breeze and i wish you here fireflies flicker like stars and your eyes and i become lost again deep in my thoughts the aroma of summertide lingers through the garden, i reach for a flower its petal is moist and soft like a brush from your lips i can't help long for you as the iris closes its petals and surrenders to night

Sandra, I enjoyed the senses being employed: the feeling of hands, breath and petal, hearing the breathing, seeing the moonshadow and flicker of fireflies, smelling the summer garden, all very real and tangible. Another beautiful write. Congrats on your #1. Hugs ~ John
